Enhanced Home Energy Management Scheme (EHEM) in Smart Grids

Muneer Bani Yassein


Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have become one of the most important components that play a major role in home environment applications. It plays a major role in the creation and the development of smart home environments. Smart homes creates home area network (HAN) to be used in different applications including smart grids. In this paper, we propose an enhancement to in-Home Energy Management (iHEM) scheme, namely EHEM, to reduce energy consumption by shifting the residents’ demands to mid-peak or off-peak periods depending on the appliances priorities and delays. The proposed system handles challenging cases by using internal storage battery. The performance of the proposed system is compared against iHEM and the traditional iHEM scheme, based on the total cost of the power consumption. Obtained results show slight improvement over the existing iHEM scheme
