Article
Full-text available
Autonomous path following has gained tremendous popularity during the last few decades. Numerous researchers have contributed to the development of highly automated navigation systems using different types of sensors and their combination. However, their proposed approaches do not provide a cost-efficient solution because of the deployment of exorb...

In the last couple of decades, numerous energy management strategies have been devised to mitigate the effects of greenhouse gas emission, hence introducing the concept of microgrids. In a microgrid, distributed energy generators are used. Microgrid enables a point which ameliorates in exchanging power with the main grid during different times of d...
Article
Full-text available
An increase in the world's population results in high energy demand, which is mostly fulfilled by consuming fossil fuels (FFs). By nature, FFs are scarce, depleted, and non-eco-friendly. Renewable energy sources (RESs) photovoltaics (PVs) and wind turbines (WTs) are emerging alternatives to the FFs. The integration of an energy storage system with...
Conference Paper
The electricity demand from residential buildings is increasing gradually day by day. Home Energy Management Systems (HEMS) are used to meet this demand by using Demand Sides Management (DSM) to reduce the pressure on consumers and utility companies. In this paper, HEMS is facilitated by using different meta-heuristic scheduling techniques: The Str...

Full-text available
In the past few years, a number of optimization techniques have been designed for Home Energy Management System (HEMS). In this paper, we evaluated the performance of two heuristic algorithms, i.e., Harmony Search Algorithm (HSA) and Tabu Search (TS) for optimization in residential area. These algorithms are used for efficient scheduling of Smart A...
Conference Paper
This paper introduces Home Energy Management System (HEMS) which is the most revolutionary application of Smart Grid (SG) technology. It allows consumers to schedule the appliances according to their desires and requirements without effecting their living comfort along with the advantage of reducing electricity expenses. As a result, Peak to Averag...
Conference Paper
The greenhouse gas emission is increasing around the globe. In order to reduce its emission factor, the concept of microgrid is introduced, which integrates renewable energy sources. The microgrid has a point of common coupling which helps to exchange power with utility during different times of a day to meet load demand. Based on all the system co...
Conference Paper
Energy management plays a vital role in maintaining sustainability and reliability of smart grid. It also helps to prevent blackouts. Energy management at consumers side is a complex task. Utility provides incentives like: demand response, time of use and real time pricing models to encourage consumers to reduce electricity consumption in certain p...
Conference Paper
Increasing demand of power and emergence of smart grid has gain maximum attention of researchers which has further opened new opportunities for Home Energy Management System (HEMS). HEMS under Demand Response (DR) helps to reduce the On-peak hour load by shifting the load toward the Off-peak hours. This load shifting strategy effects the user comfo...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Unlike existing centralized grids, smart grids (SGs) have the ability to reduce fossil fuel combustion and carbon emissions up to a significant mark. Smart homes and smart building are becoming more attractable due to low energy consumption and high comfort. Different demand side management (DSM) programs have been proposed to involve users in deci...
Article
Full-text available
In a smart grid, several optimization techniques have been developed to schedule load in the residential area. Most of these techniques aim at minimizing the energy consumption cost and the comfort of electricity consumer. Conversely, maintaining a balance between two conflicting objectives: energy consumption cost and user comfort is still a chall...
