The wide scale deployment and utilization of demand side management for the provision of frequency balancing service provision is hindered by the lack of proof of performance evaluation of such mechanisms. In this paper, the pre-qualification testing approaches for performance evaluation of frequency balancing service provision by highly distributed demand portfolio are discussed. Preliminary experimental results and challenges that arise of the pre-qualification tests conducted on a highly distributed flexible resource portfolio being managed by a multi-agent based demand side management technology are presented and the need for expansion of present day testing procedures discussed.
