Chapter
In this article, a three layered architecture is proposed for smart buildings. A fog based infrastructure is designed and deployed on the edge of network, where fog processes the private data collected through the smart meters and stores the public data on cloud. Further, end user has facility to schedule and control the home appliances by using a...
Conference Paper
In the residential area, high electricity demand of power-consuming household tasks has become a crucial issue. Thus, the key objectives of home energy management system (HEMS) are scheduling power-consuming household tasks to minimize electricity cost and maximize consumer’s comfort. The many utilities offer residential demand response (DR) progra...
Conference Paper
With the advent of smart grid and demand side management techniques, users have opportunity to reduce their electricity cost without compromising their comfort much. In this paper, we evaluate the performance of home energy management system based on user satisfaction. Our objective is to maximize the total user satisfaction within user defined bud...

A smart grid (SG) is a modernized electric grid that enhances the reliability, efficiency, sustainability, and economics of electricity services. Moreover, it plays a vital role in modern energy infrastructure. The core challenge faced by SGs is how to efficiently utilize different kinds of front-end smart devices, such as smart meters and power as...

Chapter
The energy crisis and greenhouse gas emission are increasing around the world. In order to overcome these problems, distributed energy resources are integrated which introduce the concept of microgrid (MG). The microgrid exchanges power with utility to meet load demand with the help of common coupling point. An energy management strategy is propose...
Chapter
In smart grid, Demand Side Management (DSM) plays a vital role in dealing with consumer’s demand and making communication efficient. DSM not only reduces electricity cost but also increases the stability of the grid. In this regard, we introduce an energy management system model for a home and office, then propose efficient scheduling techniques fo...
Chapter
A power system with different types of micro-sources are very popular in recent years. The aim of the paper is to make the environment green by reducing green house gases and meet the load demand in an efficient way. However, we propose a grid-connected microgrid system which meets the load demand in an efficient manner to achieve our objectives. T...
