Abstract

This paper investigates potential conflicts of interest between distribution system operators (DSOs) and aggregators. We propose a method to quantify the allowed operating range of residential flexible loads in a local distribution network. The calculated bounds can be used to formulate DSO services, tradable on a potential DSO service market platform. Aggregators are considered, concentrating thermostatically controlled loads and electric vehicles with vehicle2grid technology in order to perform arbitrage on the power market and to offer ancillary services.
