This paper describes a smart grid demonstration environment developed for concept testing of multiple smart grid applications that are based on utilization of small-scale active resources. The laboratory environment consists of utility control centre systems, aggregator software, a home energy management system, and interfaces between the systems. Two applications called frequency dependent load shedding and monitoring of reserves are demonstrated and analyzed in the paper. The results show that the developed demonstration environment is suitable for concept testing of different smart grid applications.
