Research Background

  • The electricity load increased rapidly

  • The development of information and communication technology

  • Demand Response become an important feature of smart grid

  • Impact of components in the power system and electricity market on the Demand Response programs mechanism

  • Optimize benefit of all parties participating in the Demand Response program

Conducted Research

Method for pricing incentive payments for Demand Response programs based on satisfaction function

  • Intergrated more diverse participants in the DR program

  • Develop and evaluate the applicability of the method in practice

  • Develop the idea of a satisfaction function for a price-based DR program
