Abstract

A fuzzy logic-based direct load control (DLC) scheme of large air conditioning loads (ACL), which considers the reliability characteristics of nodes where the ACL are connected, is proposed for restructured power systems. Transmission system reliability is integrated into the determination procedure of the DLC scheme of ACL using nodal reliability indices. Fuzzy dynamic programming (FDP) is utilized to determine the optimal DLC scheme of ACL which can achieve a good tradeoff among peak load shaving, system operating cost reduction and system reliability improvement. The IEEE reliability test system (RTS) is used to illustrate the proposed technique. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
