Optimization of Home Energy Management System Through Application of Tabu Search
In the past few years, a number of optimization techniques have been designed for Home Energy Management System (HEMS). In this paper, we evaluated the performance of two heuristic algorithms, i.e., Harmony Search Algorithm (HSA) and Tabu Search (TS) for optimization in residential area. These algorithms are used for efficient scheduling of Smart Appliances (SA) in Smart Homes (SH). Evaluated results show that TS performed better than HSA in achieving our defined goals of cost reduction, improving User Comfort (UC) level and minimization of Peak to Average Ratio (PAR). However, there remains a trade-off between electricity cost and waiting time.
