German term or phrase: Rundsteuerkommando
The sentence is:
In der Regel gelten für die Aussendung der Rundsteuerkommandos die Tarifzeiten und die Werkvorschriften der EWS. Aus betrieblichen Gründen sind Abweichungen nicht zu vermeiden. Das EWS bemüht sich, diese so klein wie möglich zu halten. Betreffend Störungen in den Rundsteuerkommandos ist Art. 5 sinngemäss anwendbar.


The context is an electrical power supply agreement. A utility company, EWS, supplies electricity.

English translation:ripple control impulses
Explanation:
Ferretti – Wörterbuch der Datentechnik says that a "ripple control system" = "Rundsteueranlage" and that it transmits HF impulses over an electric supply network for control purposes. -

I think the following must hold the record for being the longest URL in the Internet: -

- "Rundsteuerung knipst Straßenlampen an

Es dauerte jedoch bis 1927, ehe die Ideen Claudes in der ersten Rundsteueranlage in Paris umgesetzt wurden. Drei Jahre später erprobten die Märkischen Elektrizitätswerke in Potsdam die Rundsteuerung in Deutschland. 1997 wandten rund 420 deutsche Stromversorger diese Technik an." -

The idea being that not every streetlight in town should go on at exactly the same second thereby blowing a fuse. All I really want to say is that the "ripple" idea could be quite important here, no matter whether you use "impulses" or "signals".

Explanation:
I found "ripple control" in both Budig, Wörterbuch Elektrotechnik und Elektronik, and in Siemens, Fachwörterbuch Energie- und Automatisierungstechnik. Siemens lists the 2 terms above for Rundsteuerbefehl or Rundsteuersignal (which, acc. to Siemens, are synonymous). HTH!
