The emerging need to prioritize remedial frequency control measures closer to the source of an imbalance event, referred to as responsibilization, is being acknowledged. As responsibilization is inherent within secondary frequency control, novel primary frequency control (PFC) approaches to incorporate responsibilization are being proposed in literature. This contribution is aimed to enhance the understanding of responsibilization to enable further improvement and development of the concept. To this end, this paper extends the knowledge-base by presenting an analysis of responsibilization within conventional PFC and a responsibilizing PFC reported in literature. The analysis is undertaken by means of real-time simulation conducted on a six-area reduced model of the Great Britain power system.
