The increasing amount of variable electricity generation has brought world to investigate various flexibility sources to provide power network balancing through demand side management. Therefore, it is important to create new, more thorough models that allow using smart functions to control the various electricity loads. In this paper a model to simulate a fully mixed domestic hot water tank’s behavior in 60, 30 and 15 min time resolution, and its control mechanisms were created. The model will be integrated to another smart house model to enable studying more combined smart controls and functions. Additionally, the flexibility of the hot water storage tank was investigated with the help of 4 different heating scenarios, showing its suitability for Demand Side Management, and the operation of the model was con?rmed with lower time resolutions.
