Preemptive Appliances Scheduling in Smart Home Using Genetic Algorithm

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 324)


Smart grid is the newer version of electricity network that incorporates the information and communication technology in addition with the renewable energy resources. Smart grid offers electricity for the users at different rates at different time. Smart grid employs smart home where there is a set of electrical appliances that need to be scheduled in such a way to reduce their electricity charges. Many bio-inspired algorithms are of greater interest for the recent years and are being able to solve several complex problems in the real-world situations; the smart home appliances scheduling problem is solved using the genetic algorithm. Two new operators namely appliance-based one-point crossover operator and appliance-based rotation mutation operator are used for solving the problem.
