The topic of demand side management is currently becoming more important than ever, in parallel with the further deregulation of the electricity sector, and the increasing integration of renewable energy sources. A historical review of automation integration in power system control assists in identifying established operational rules of contemporary systems, which subsequently evoke fundamental requirements for demand response applications. The scope of this paper is to provide a set of infrastructural, architectural and operational criteria for demand response systems, to support the process of establishing standards and procedures. An effort is made to address the views of system and market operators, deregulated utilities, ancillary service providers and customers.
