Abstract:A change in future electricity grids is expected caused by the introduction of distributed generation, distributed storage and demand side load management. To analyse the impact of these technologies, a simulator has been developed. With this simulator, a small group of households with micro-generators can already be analysed. However, due to the large memory footprint, larger groups of houses cannot be simulated. In this paper an improved simulator which is capable of distributing simulations over multiple PCs via a network is presented.
Using this distributed approach, more (memory) resources can be utilised and more calculations can be done in parallel. Although the introduction of the network stack gives some overhead, still a large speedup is seen when more PCs are used. Furthermore, far bigger groups of houses can simulated.
