energy

Ripple control is a common form of load control, which involves superimposing a higher-frequency signal onto the standard 50–60 Hz of the main power signal. When receiver devices attached to non-essential residential or industrial loads receive this signal, they shut down the load until the signal is disabled or another frequency signal is received.
