[en] Any imbalance between electric power supply and demand results in power system frequency deviations from its nominal value. Frequency regulation is one of the most important services that regional system operators perform to ensure reliable system operation. Traditional power supply sources such as generators are usually automatically modulated to help balance generation and demand by adjusting their output based in part on system frequency. As a result of the decreased inertia of the system caused by decommissioning of traditional power plants and the increase in the penetration of renewable energy sources, the increased use of demand side controls for the purpose of frequency regulation is receiving increased attention. Demand control can provide fast response to any imbalance. This opens up the possibility for Electric Vehicles (EVs) to be used as frequency regulation grid resources. This write-up discusses the potential, opportunities and benefit of doing so.
