Samenvatting:
High peak loads at transformer stations in domestic residences are expected where heating is provided merely by heat pumps with additional electric heating. Two scenarios are studied: the event of a black start and high electricity demand on a day with a very low outdoor temperature. The simulation is done with agents representing up to 100 dwellings based on PowerMatcher technology. The results demonstrate significant peak load reduction can be achieved at the expense of only a small decrease of comfort. This allows the usage of smaller load transformer units, reduces grid losses and benefits the lifetime of medium and low voltage transmission cables.
