The Danish Energy Strategy Plan aims to transform
Denmark into a fossil-free country by 2050. Large-scale
wind power penetration is expected to increase in the
power system. The high penetration level of wind farms
creates challenges to the power system control and
operation. The conventional grid would have to transform
into a Smart grid in order to cope with the challenges.
Smart Energy System presents flexible loads like electric
vehicles, heat pumps, electrolysers in a Smart grid
environment as demand response resources and indirect
storage units that provides a supporting role to integrate
more wind power in the grid.
In this thesis, the focus is on the employment of
electrolyzer, aggregation of heat pumps, electrical vehicles
as flexible loads and associated energy storage units for
power balancing in wind power dominated power
systems. Dynamic analysis on an IEEE standard grid model
are conducted under various grid operating conditions and
scenarios in DIgSILENT Power Factory. In dynamic analysis,
flexible loads is modelled for Load Frequency Control and
