The DR Events tab in the Simulation Results window contains the list of Demand Response events. Click on the drop-down highlighted in the image below to get more detailed information on how each demand response event.

The table describes the variables of the DR event currently selected in the drop down.

clip0055

Variable

Description

Event Start

The date and time when the DR event started

Duration

The duration in hours for how long the DR event lasted

Demand incentive

The demand reduction incentive that applies to this DR event (in $ per kW reduced)

Optimized demand reduction bid

The load reduction achieved during this event

(= Load peak during event - Actual peak during event)

Load peak during event

The baseline load during the event

Actual demand peak

The actual grid purchase during the event

Demand reduction revenue

The total incentive earned by reducing grid purchases

The second table gives breakdown of other on-site components that were used to reduce grid purchases during this DR event. If a battery was used to serve some part of the load during this event, the second table would appear as below.

clip0056

This shows the total kWh in throughput from the battery during this event and the wear cost of the battery allowing you to compare it against the demand reduction incentive ($/kW).

The section on the right contains two plots. The upper plot contains the load (black line), and Grid purchases (blue). The lower plot contains the performance of other components that were used to serve part of the load during this DR event. The gray region in both plots highlights the duration of the DR event.
