Demand-response management is an approach that includes the power demand side into the power management process to reshape power demand of consumers to the current availability of power. Data centres are major energy consumers that are highly interesting for demand-response management. However, in contrast to many other energy consumers, data centres have a highly dynamic flexibility in terms of power adaption, depending on the current situation, which makes their integration into demand-response management difficult. This paper suggests a model for the dynamic power adaption flexibility of data centres, to foster their integration into demand-response management.
