Implementation of Smart Residential Energy Management System for Smart Grid Conference Paper uri icon


  • 2015 IEEE. Residential sector represents a substantial increase of electricity consumption, due to substantial growth of electrical residential appliances. Electrical energy management is a major key toward reducing energy consumption and improving efficiency, decreasing costs of energy use, and decreasing the carbon footprint. Therefore, this paper proposes a novel embedded real-time, non-intrusive, smart, simple and effective residential energy management system that is capable to monitor and control energy consumption of the residential loads, balance electric power supply, reduce peak demand, and reduce energy bill while considering residential households preferences and comfort level. Therefore, the presented algorithm aims to reach those set goals by assigning the residential load according to utilities power supply events. The proposed system is investigated using Matlab/Simulink software to both verify the analytical procedure accuracy in the power grid and to obtain basic characteristics of the residential loads during peak demand. The proposed energy management system does not require any changes in the residential electrical panel. Experimental results and real-time implementation demonstrate the validity of the system proposed.
