Abstract: This paper presents a case study on a hypothetical community consisting of 512 houses. In this case study, demand side energy management resources (DSEMR) that can be used for energy management purposes is quantified and utilized to maintain the stability and quality of the electric distribution system in the community. For this case study, an integrated model combining three functions are used. The functions are to quantify energy demand and DSEMR of houses, to optimize the way to use the DSEMR, and to calculate electric voltage of the power distribution system. We evaluated the effect of following three kinds of DSEMR, 1) utilization of energy storage devices, 2) shifting of the time of operation, and 3) lowering the service level.
