Smart Home Electricity Management in the Context of Local Power Resources and Smart Grid

Weiliang Zhao, Lan Ding, Paul Cooper, and Pascal Perez
Abstract—This work proposes a smart home electricity management approach that can predict and schedule electricity demand and supply by considering: the ‘state’ of the smart grid, local power generation capacity, and electrical consumption of household appliances. The prediction of weather conditions and the immediate and longer-term plans of the residential home occupants are crucial parameters in the smart home decision-making system that acts on behalf of the occupants. This paper provides a motivation example and associated scenarios, electrical energy supply/demand models, formalization of the cost optimization problem, and scheduling schemes for a smart home electricity management system in the context of a smart grid, smart appliances, and local renewable energy resources. A case study is provided to illustrate how the proposed approach works.

Index Terms—Smart grid, renewable energy, smart home, demand side energy management.
