    Abstract

    The role of demand side management in providing ancillary services to the network is an active topic of research. However, their implementation is limited due to lack of practical demonstrations and tests that can rigorously quantify their ability to support the grid’s integrity. In this paper, provision of time critical frequency control ancillary service is demonstrated by means of integrating PowerMatcher, a well discussed demand side management mechanism in literature, with real-time power hardware. The co-simulation platform enables testing of demand side management techniques to provide ancillary services.
