This paper presents a method for stabilizing grid frequency by considering demand flexibility before allowing demand response. To this end, the flexibility of consumers under a price incentive signal delivered by an aggregator to the energy management system (EMS) is estimated. The goal is to represent the optimization process of the EMS from the perspective of the aggregator, implement the price incentive signal, and eventually produce changes in the load pattern that will contribute to the dynamic frequency control. With the help of the aggregator, prosumers can receive price incentive signals based on their energy consumption and prepare them for their participation in grid frequency stabilization. By considering the operation of a wide range of renewable energy sources and a load management system, the study investigates the reduction of the total reliance on electricity from the grid in day-ahead and real-time energy markets while also balancing an anticipated load. The control framework presented in this paper considers the estimated power availability and uses it in conjunction with the participation of a load aggregator to control the load frequency.
