Large-Scale Der Aggregations Of Electric Water Heaters And Battery Inverter Systems, Kevin Marnell
Dissertations and Theses
Distributed energy resources like residential electric water heaters and residential battery inverter systems offer a small amount of change to the grid individually. When aggregated however, these assets can cause major effects to the electric grid. Aggregating these resources allows them to take on generator-like functions with the ability to increment power and decrement power.
