    Abstract

    The energy power gird is evolving in order to cope with the implementation of new technologies and penetration of renewable resource. These changes are associated with a shift towards more flexible network operation. A particular emphasis is an expectation that this operational flexibility will be coming from the demand side. This research outlines an approach that enables consumers take part in Active Demand Participation program and help them decide how to schedule various appliances within the household. A scheduling tool that enables participating customers to automatically respond to the inflow price signals that may vary during a day is presented. Here, two inflow price signals are considered so to analyze individual household behaviours: i) predefined Time of Use pricing; ii) forecasted Real-Time Pricing (RTP) scenarios.
