Electrical Models

These models and simulations have been tagged “Electrical”.

Electricity is not currently stored in electricity networks, so supply and demand are balanced - inflows must equal outflows. This simulates a simple substation with a variable demand by time-of-day.

The price of electricity depends on the mix of sources. In particular, balancing charges, which are incurred by the grid operator for instantaneous and near-instantaneous services required to balance supply and demand, are more expensive than electricity which is provided against predicted demand.

The price of electricity depends on the mix of sources. In particular, balancing charges, which are incurred by the grid operator for instantaneous and near-instantaneous services required to balance supply and demand, are more expensive than electricity which is provided against predicted demand. PV increases variability, increasing the need for balancing services.
Adding consumer photovoltaics to the simple supply model increases the complexity of flows. In particular, flows can now be reversed (into the grid) through the transformer.
