The demand side management has gained considerable prospects and encounters due to the coming in of the Smart Grid. It is also anticipated that the advanced metering infrastructure will enhance the demand side management establishments. This paper discusses the proposed demand side management archetypal that relies on the advanced metering infrastructure for the smart grid. The archetypal has the following components; a collaborative or two-way communication grid, a metering infrastructure and submission software on the user’s end and regulator side correspondingly. We present and discuss the inter-associations for the various minor components that make up the archetypal. In the proposed work, the terminal consumer circulated power resources are taken into account. This archetypal is meant to improve the communication between the power end user and the supply side. It is assumed that it will enhance power distribution and serve as a bench mark to the smart distribution system load management.
