Contribution au pilotage de la charge pour accroître la flexibilité du système électrique.

Abstract : Environmental challenges and the increasing in electric demand show the importance of considering other form of production while maintaining the safety and reliability of the electrical system. The electrical power systems stability lays on a fundamental constraint: supply and demand must be equal at each instant, so, different solutions are already in place, these solutions include controlling generators’ production during peak periods. But, power units (mainly nuclear, thermal, hydro) capacities are not always sufficient and flexible to follow the demand variations during these periods; an alternative solution to this insufficiency is to make the demand following the electrical power generation by providing bulks of electrical power to the power system by curtailing consumer’s electric load consumption. Such a solution that represents a new organization in the power system industry can be done by Demand Side Management (DSM) actions. The aim of the thesis is to study the possibility to offer services to the electrical system by applying control actions called DR (Demand Response) on different types of electric loads. These DR actions represent partial interruptions of electrical loads’ consumption and especially thermal loads’ consumption.Our choice was based on the thermal electric loads because they store heat respectively in air and water, which can be restored during the control period or interruption. However, there is a negative effect that follows the control of these type of loads because the reduced energy during curtailment period is deferred at the time of reconnection, this deferred power takes the form of a power peak named CLPU (Cold Load Pick-Up), which appears at the time of reconnection. The CLPU is a problem that must be managed, and its magnitude depends on the type of control actions and on the electric system conditions (ie: contingency or failure of a generating unit). In the thesis, the CLPU is controlled and optimized as well as the load reduction during curtailment period. The contribution of control actions in balancing mechanisms and the effect produced on the secondary control of frequency are analyzed.
