2781 - Guide for Load Modeling and Simulations for Power Systems

Load modeling and simulation have been an established area with continuous development through research and engineering practices. Although there are different references and reports, there are emerging interests from the industry on standard practices with various load models and simulations to accommodate the rapidly evolving power industry incorporating both conventional and new inverter connected renewable elements. Development in power electronics, smart grid technologies, demand side control and increasing renewable energy uptake have made load modeling an increasingly challenging essential element for system operations and planning to ensure system security while maintain economic efficiency and emission reduction objectives. The rapid deployment of IoT technologies and considered by industry initiative brings new opportunities and challenges for load modeling; together with big data analysis and artificial intelligence methods, data obtained through the IoT sensors enable detailed modeling of loads behind the meters without customer survey. A guide for standard approaches within this domain will lead to new load modeling approaches beyond the conventional measurement based or component based ones which will advance acceptance and interoperability.
