Overcoming barriers: the role of Industries in Ancillary Services

Power systems are undergoing major transitions that create new challenges in maintaining reliable energy supply and ensuring continued operational safety. Existing power systems are being challenged to meet a new set of requirements, driven by increased levels of variable renewable energy production, trends towards increased urbanisation and electrification of transport and industry.

Ensuring security of supply and reliability of operations are the main concerns of power system operators during this major transition and part of the solution will certainly be the provision of ancillary services from untapped industry sources. Ancillary Service Provision Methods have the potential to facilitate the utilisation of industrial resources.

Ancillary services encompass a variety of operations beyond generation and transmission that are required to maintain grid stability and security. Ancillary services were traditionally provided by centralised large-scale electricity producers, such as nuclear and hydro power plants, which will only offer limited availability within the future power system landscape. New resources capable of providing ancillary services will become essential.

确保电力系统持续高效运行的一个重要因素是消费者市场更多地参与辅助服务的提供。今天,工业应用已经占了消费的很大一部分,由于各个部门的电气化,这一比例预计将增加。因此,工业提供辅助服务的技术和经济潜力是巨大的。

大多数大型电力消费者,等行业and real estate companies, are already active within energy markets because of the financial benefits of participation. However they do not provide ancillary services, with lack of knowledge often stated as the reason. Despite the well-established potential, more understanding is needed on both sides. Power system operators need to understand more about the technical possibilities in industry and industry players need to understand the needs of the power market.

AFRY experts launched the Ancillary Service Provision Methods project to address this need, with an aim to increase the utilisation of industrial resources in the provision of ancillary services by facilitating the process of connecting system operators with industry.

An introduction to Ancillary Service Provision Methods (ASPM)

提出的策略旨在说明不同行业部门可以通过哪些方式提供辅助服务。研究建议引入辅助服务提供方法(ASPM),以促进识别可用于提供辅助服务的潜在工艺或设备的程序。通过对瑞典西部活跃行业的一系列访谈,对提议的方法进行了评估。一系列具有不同特征的工业过程或设备显示了它们用于实现各种ASPM的潜力。

我们的调查突出了电力系统发展的五个趋势,这些趋势增加了行业考虑参与辅助服务提供的动机。研究表明,将工业部门与辅助服务联系起来,不仅有助于确定工业内部流程,而且有助于确定电力系统运营商辅助服务的潜在供应商。
