Load Management and Methods of Meeting Peak Demand

Part of the Advances in Industrial Control book series (AIC)


In many developing systems, the concept of reserve has not taken a concrete shape with the result that not only are no reserves maintained or even efforts made to build up reserves over a period of time, but also more load is taken on the system than the matching available generation thus compromising on the standard system frequency. This tendency is detrimental to satisfactory system operation and is injurious to power plant equipment and consumers’ installations alike. The ill- effects of under-frequency operation are dealt with in Chapter 7 of [4] in some detail.
