After restructuring the power systems, demand response programs form the main part of consumption management programs. This is because these programs are by nature particularly suitable for adapting to the new structure in power system management. These programs are considered as a suitable solution for solving some problems in power system restructuring. Unit commitment (UC) programs are used for power production with minimum cost. In this paper, after presenting an overview of demand response methods, a mechanism is proposed for simultaneous execution of the UC program, emergency demand response programs, and interruptible/curtailable loads. The proposed mechanism, in addition to decreasing the payment costs, ensures a flat load curve and increases system reliability.
