This paper presents a Markov chain approach for developing low-voltage (LV) residential load models for use in the analysis of future smart grids. The motivation is to obtain a better understanding of load use and user behaviour at the LV level which will allow future electricity network performance to be improved by understanding the impact of energy demand transformations through the application of demand-side management (DSM) strategies at the LV side. The developed load models highlight the variations between individual and aggregate load model representation and show that the composition of LV residential users should be carefully considered when analysing LV networks.
