Abstract

In this paper, we focus on a real world scenario of managing electrical demand sets of a smart-home. External signals, reflecting the low voltage grid’s state, are used to support the challenge of balancing energy demand and generation. To manage the smart-home’s appliances and to integrate electric vehicles as energy storages decentralized control systems are investigated.
