  • Abstract:

    In this work, we consider the impact or sensitivity of loads to likely power system contingencies that would require the adoption of demand management programs and we establish a frame work for determining the most critical loads and ranking them. Moreover we develop a novel weighted average approach that can be modified to specific power system needs and determine the most effective load for a number of likely contingencies. The methodologies developed in this work are tested on a wide range of sample power system test cases with successful results
