Apparatus for interrupting supply of power from power system to portion of consumer load in response to control signal from power system

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #5436511.

A consumer load receiving power from a power system is divided into a first load to which power may be interrupted if necessary to reduce demand on the power system, and a second load to which power supply may not be interrupted to reduce demand on the power system. When it is necessary to reduce demand on the power system, the power system sends a load control signal to a controller at the consumer indicating that supply of power to the first load is to be interrupted. In response to the load control signal, the controller interrupts supply of power from the power system to the first load, thereby reducing demand on the power system.
