Electric power systems regardless of their sizes aim to deliver the electric power demanded by their consumers from the available generating plants considering the main aspects of reliability, stability, safety and quality of supply with the most economic manner. A developed electric power system which can deliver electricity in a controlled, smart way from points of generation to active consumers is called a smart grid. One of the smart grid elements is Demand Response; by promoting the interaction and responsiveness of the customers, may offer a broad range of potential benefits on system operation, expansion and on grid losses. Moreover, by improving the reliability of the power system and, in the long term, lowering peak demand, DR reduces overall plant and capital cost investments and postpones the need for network upgrades. The main objective of this paper is to determine the effect of Demand Response on the grid losses. Considering different load scenarios, the demand response effect on the power system of Jordan is investigated focusing on the grid losses with the implementation of demand response and the grid losses without DR. The analysis is based on the complete model of the power system of Jordan including the transmission network, generation. The paper will reveal the effect of the demand response and the reduced peak demand. The demand response will be studied for different load scenarios. Simulations will be performed using DIgSILENT Power Factory.
