Evaluation of the Impact of Demand Response Program on Transmission Network Planning

The main objective of this project is to provide a critique and evaluation of major international and national demand response programs and technologies based on a review of available technologies and analysing them in light of the characteristics of the electricity demand in New South Wales. In this research, potentials of demand response programs will be explored and the technical requirements for successful application of demand response in deferring capital investment in the transmission network will be suggested. The project focuses on technical issues of implementing demand response program with consideration of relevant regulatory and economical aspects.
