Demand responseProject United Energy Distribution Demand Response
This report documents the major achievements of the project since the release of the last milestone report.
This document is the United Energy (UE) Demand Response Project Performance Report for the ARENA Advancing Renewables Programme – Demand Response programme (RB006). It fulfils an obligation under the Knowledge Sharing Plan to provide an update on the status of the delivery of the Dynamic Voltage Management System (DVMS) rollout project including sharing of results and lessons learnt.
This report documents the major achievements of the project since the release of the last milestone report. These achievements include completion of:-
- AEMO’s testing of United Energy’s demand response reserve capability during the non-summer period;
- an algorithm to identify distribution substation locations to perform low voltage remedial works. These works are contemplated to tighten up outlier site voltage profiles to provide sufficient voltage margins within regulatory voltage limits to deliver the required demand response capability;
- quantifying changes in the sensitivity of demand to voltage on UE’s distribution network during the non-summer months of the year; and
- knowledge sharing activities relating to the findings of the project during the period.
To minimise duplication of content, this report should be read as a continuation of the milestone 1 and 2 reports.
