Efficient Utilization of HEM Controller Using Heuristic Optimization Techniques
The performance and comparative analysis of home energy management controller using three optimization techniques; genetic algorithm (GA), enhanced differential evolution (EDE) and optimal stopping rule (OSR) has been evaluated in this paper. In this regard, a generic system model consisting of home area network, advanced metering infrastructure, home energy management controller, and smart appliances has been proposed. Price threshold policy and priority of appliance have also been considered to depict monthly and yearly average electricity bill savings and appliance delay using day-ahead real-time pricing (DA-RTP). Simulation results validate that all our proposed schemes successfully shifts the appliance operations to off-peak times and results in reduced electricity bill with reasonable waiting time.
