To model flexibility resources with their inherent uncertainties. Specifically modelling atomic loads, combined with customers' usage patterns for estimation of flexibility potential.
A flexibility modelling method for atomic loads which is based on high resolution appliance measurement data is presented.
The method embraces the potential variabilities of appliance use in group of households.
A method is developed which is applicable for different flexibility resources.
A conference paper is published and the model is available through the Zenodo platform.
Impact for distribution system innovation
The developed method enables realistic representation of flexibility resources in the distribution grid planning. It also enables the accurate analysis of flexibility potentials and impacts of flexibility activation.
