Paper presents Fast Demand Response (DR) as readily available (i.e. sub-second) spinning reserve. As such it contributes to overall power system reserve and consequently increases renewable energy (RE) penetration. Paper outlines an implementation of Fast DR and presents measurements from a real isolated power system in Australia. The measurements demonstrate that the Fast DR system actually prevented diesel start up during zero-diesel operation (100% renewable operation).
