Abstract The demand as frequency reserve (DFR) technique basically enables an electric appliance to switch off when the grid frequency drops (and reconnect back when the frequency recovers). Given sufficient amount of such appliances, total electricity consumption is effectively reduced thus helping the balance of supply and demand to be re-established in the system and the frequency to recover. This project aims at developing advanced hardware device to implement DFR technique with a GPRS based communication system that will survey the data collected to a central server for advanced control and data processing. The final product will be used in a field testing of the technique.
