This paper presents a unique approach to scheme a demand response (DR) program in the electricity market from a customer-oriented perspective, which is based on the analytic hierarchy process (AHP). The proposed program is designed as an incentive-based program (IBP) considering Korea power systems with the cost-based generation pool (CBP). And the proposed DR program has the objective to maximize social welfare corresponding customers‘ participation and the constraints including incentive payments, the specific load curtailment conditions and reserve-margin criterion. A test system for the case study is used to demonstrate the usefulness and applicability of the proposed approach, and the load profiles with the proposed DR program are obtained. The results show not only the revenue attributable to the avoided costs but also enhancement of system reliability.
