Abstract

This paper evaluates the potential of consumer flexibility to reduce expenditure on the ancillary services required to manage wind variability. Flexibility is provided by turning up or turning down a portfolio of heat pumps in response to system imbalance.
We proposed two new ancillary service products to the Irish DS3 Market, Demand-Turn-Up+ (DTU+) and Demand-Turn-Down+ (DTD+). A model for simulating these two services was developed for three scenarios: Flexibility using thermal storage, Flexibility using battery and finally flexibility by shifting or reducing heating loads without storage. A portfolio of one million heat pumps was simulated, controlling these devices in response to system imbalance for the month of February 2019. A time series of DS3 payments was used to calculate the associated savings in DS3 spend for each settlement period.
