SNZ AS/NZS 4755.1
Demand response capabilities and supporting technologies for electrical products Part 1: Demand response framework and requirements for demand response enabling devices (DREDs)
|Publication Date:||3 March 2017|
This Standard specifies a demand response framework, which consists of a DRED complying with AS/NZS 4755.1 and one or more electrical products complying with the relevant parts of AS/NZS 4755.3.
This Standard also specifies the following:
(a) Minimum physical requirements for a DRED.
(b) Minimum levels of functionality for a DRED.
(c) Optional capabilities and functionalities.
(d) Various means of communicating with a remote agent which allow a DRED to be designated as a specific class.
NOTE: For example, a DRED that complies with the means of communication specified in Appendix B is designated a Class B DRED, and a DRED that complies with the means of communication specified in Appendix C is designated a Class C DRED.
(e) Means of connecting a DRED to the demand response interface(s) on one or more electrical products meeting the requirements of AS/NZS 4755.3.X.
NOTE: AS/NZS 4755.3.1, AS/NZS 4755.3.2, AS/NZS 4755.3.3, AS/NZS 4755.3.4 and AS/NZS 4755.3.5 are collectively called AS/NZS 4755.3.X in this document.
(f) Labelling and marking requirements for a DRED.
The Standard sets out an approach to the verification and testing of DRED capabilities.
This Standard does not-
(i) cover products with functions similar to those of DREDs that may interact with or control the operation of categories of electrical products not covered by AS/NZS 4755.3.X;
(ii) specify or limit the means of communication between the remote agent and the DRED (other than DREDs of a class covered by an appendix);
(iii) specify or limit the form of connection or communication between parts of multi-part DREDs; or
(iv) limit additional capabilities that the DRED may have beyond those specified, provided such capabilities do not conflict with the requirements of this Standard.
Other statutory or regulatory requirements may be applicable to the product(s) that fall within the scope of this Standard. It is the manufacturer's, importer's or distributor's responsibility (as appropriate) to ensure that products comply with such requirements.
