Abstract [en]

Todays change of technical equipment in private households leads to altered domestic electric load profiles. This work investigates the change of residential electric load profiles when introducing PV, Air-Source-Heat-Pumps, CHP units and electric vehicles (EV). A modular modelling approach is presented, which allows for application on a larger scale, e.g. for simulations of distribution grid or gas and district heating network in residential areas. Results of a one year simulation for a representative German household show that load peaks can vary heavily between 4.05 kW (PV being present) and 24.67 kW (EV being present), i.e. depending on the technology present in a household. The net yearly elctricity demand varies from -1 094 kWh (PV being present) to 14 936 kWh (ASHP being present). This information should be considered when discussing gird planing, energy supply and DSM concepts for residential areas.
