The Role Of Demand Response And Integrating Renewable Energy In Smart Grid
Demand response applications within smart grid provide excellent opportunities for peak demand reduction
through demand side load management. Economic growth of any country is dependent upon its Power Consumption. Hence
to make India a self reliant economic power a large amount of power is required. In India there is a huge gap between the
Power generated and the Power demand. It is not possible to realize this gap by increasing the installed capacity, as the
resources are limited and due to economic constraints also. For that the Energy being generated should be conserved to the
utmost and it is possible by using DSM measures. Demand Side Management (DSM) is the process of managing the
consumption of energy, generally to optimize available and planned generation resources. DSM plays an important role in
improving energy efficiency, system reliability and security. DSM reduces costs for both customers and utilities and
mitigates environmental damage. This paper applies different DSM measures by applying load shifting on different energy
sector. This would definitely lead to marginalizing the gap between demand and supply.
