Abstract

This paper proposes a method to determine the availability of loads to provide tertiary Reserve Services (RS) in the framework of Smart Grids. The method uses Physically-Based Load Models (PBLM) and considers the remuneration paid for the RS provision. The concept of availability is also discussed in the paper and the method is applied to three different categories of domestic thermal appliances: electric water heater, air conditioners and refrigerators.
