Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


To fully assess the impact of possible demand-side management (DSM) actions on a system-wide scale, detailed low-voltage (LV) load models are required. This paper describes the development of a flexible, bottom-up approached profiling tool that transforms user activity profiles into load models. That will allow studying the grid and the influence of the implementation of DSM. The proposed profiling tool allows for variations in the three main areas that will determine the energy demand: the user behaviour, user electrical loads and ambient conditions.
