Demand Side Management (DSM) is the most important strategy in micro grids. It allows the consumers to consume power in a more controlled manner and also assist the power generation side to balance the demand gap between the consumption and the generation. In this way not only the reliability of the power system and micro grid is increased but also the operational cost of the system gets minimized. Conventionally DSM is system specialized and therefore uses specific techniques and energy

This article present DSM with load shifting technique on micro grids and the strategy is applicable to a large number of appliances. The forecast-ed data is formulated in the form of a minimization problem and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), a heuristic algorithm is used to solve the problem. Three different consumption zone have been considered (residential, commercial, and industrial) having different appliance connected to the grid. In the end comparison of the proposed system is done with two other techniques from the literature, which shows that the proposed system has better load shifting technique and has reduced the cost more efficiently.
