Stability Analysis for Smart Homes Energy Management System with Delay Consideration

Saher Umer, Yasuo Tan, and Azman Osman Lim
Abstract—There is a tendency to consume electrical energy simultaneously by home appliances (HAs) leading to frequent demand peaks. Nowadays the number of (HAs) in modern residences has significantly increased as compared to the past. If the power demand is not met with the limited available power supply, this could lead to major power blackout. Our smart power management system consists of smart electric sensor (SES) and power provisioning controller (PPC). The PPC and SES are used to control and maintain stability with complete power waveform behavior examination. In this paper, we focus on achieving optimal system model for smart homes to reduce the risks of power blackout by applying two different criteria of power assignment for the HAs. A comparative study has been conducted which show the drastic change in the system behavior by changing the power assignment criteria. We also carry out the stability analysis for the proposed system model of smart homes. The stability analysis verifies that the system stability is dependent on some time delay. Simulation results also help us to observe critical system behaviors such as stability and overshoot of energy waveform.

Index Terms—Power provisioning controller, smart electric sensor, maximum consuming power, home appliance power derivation, power supply/demand.
