Integrative In-Home Display Development for Smart Places

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 214)


This paper designs an in-home display capable of integratively coordinating power management activities from diverse smart grid entities and presents its implementation details. With IHDs, the power consumption values are captured at fixed time intervals by smart meters and sent to the network operation center through an end-to-end connection embracing Zigbee, WLAN, and the Internet. Built upon request-and-response semantic, a control path is implemented from IHDs to smart sockets. This path is extended to smart phones from IHDs, making it possible for customers to send a command or receive the current status of respective appliances on their phones. The high-capacity data server belonging to the network operation center manages and analyzes the time-series metering data sets for accurate demand forecasting using artificial neural networks. After all, our framework can integrate sophisticated power consumption scheduler and automatically send the control command according to a specific schedule.
