Fine-grained under frequency load shedding called “demand as a frequency controlled reserve“ (DFCR) has been shown to be a promising method of providingfrequency regulation service from distributed loads . Micro-grids with a large portion of intermittent renewable generation will benefit greatly from this technology because their low inertia. The paper proposes a operating procedure for utilizing DFCR loads for energy balancing, expanding DFCR’s well known role as a power balancing resource. The system operator can use DFCR for energy balancing by adjusting the frequency controller of generators to schedule off-nominal system frequency values. The feasibility of the proposed system is evaluated on an existing small island power system.
