An important prerequisite for reliable and stable operation of electrical power grids is that supply and demand of power are balanced at all times. In traditional, centrally-controlled electrical power networks, real-time balancing is usually implemented by adjusting large-scale generation to fluctuations in demand. However, this load-following strategy is becoming increasingly difficult with the growing degree of integration of renewable and distributed generation (DG-RES), which affects both the forecast ability and controllability of the electrical grid.
