Load Analysis for Evaluating Flexibility Needs in the Planning of an Industrial Distribution Grid
Challenge and objective
An increasing load demand in distribution grids drives the need for flexibility. However, traditional load modelling methods do not provide information about when and how much flexibility is needed. In this result, we used grid and load data from a Norwegian DSO to quantify the flexibility need in the grid.
Grid and load data from a Norwegian DSO was collected and anonymized.
Research code developed at SINTEF was used for analysing the data.
The analysis results were presented at the SEST conference in September 2022, and published as a conference paper.
The dataset was submitted to the journal Data in Brief.
Impact for distribution system innovation
The work represents an example of how to use AMS data for grid planning.
The data set can be used by others who wish to study Norwegian industrial distribution grids.
