Abstract: deregulation and dynamic market conditions have created significant opportunities for the engagement of industrial entities normally regarded as electricity consumers in the operation of the power grid. Chemical plants (e.g., air separation, ammonia production, chlor-alkali) are particularly promising candidates given their large power demand. Engaging in such activities (either demand response or providing ancillary ... Read more about "Demand Response Operation of Chemical Plants: Models and Computational Methods"
