Energy Management Technologies for Smart Home Applications
This paper reviews previous and recent trends in energy management systems (EMS) and energy information communication technologies (EICT) for smart home applications. Relevant EMS and EICT publications on smart homes are reviewed. This paper first analyzes different energy management approaches for smart home applications, including fuzzy logic, neural networks, heuristic methods, and evolution-based approaches. Then, various EICT approaches are surveyed to evaluate the feasibility of smart home applications by discussing historical developments and introducing advanced EICT methods. Importantly, this paper contributes to efforts to further advanced energy management technologies for smart home applications.
