A simulation model was developed in order to answer the questions that arise especially in the household sector with an implementation of Demand Side Management (DSM). This model can reproduce the behavior of household devices on the one hand and the effects of various DSM-systems on their power consumption on the other hand. A model of the devices of a household was established for an average daily load and verified with already known load curves, measurements and additional data. The examined DSM-systems do not require any additional communication between the devices and have a simple structure. The information on the need for an intervention in the power consumption of the devices is determined from the line frequency This model was used subsequently as the basis for initial investigations of three exemplary DSM-systems using various scenarios in which different frequency profiles are given. The results of these simulations are presented in this work.
