Scheduling home-appliances to optimize energy consumption

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterResearch


In order to optimize the energy consumption, energy demand peaks should be avoided, and energy consumption should be smoothly distributed over time. This can be achieved by setting a maximum energy consumption per user’s household. In other words, the overall consumption of the user’s appliances cannot exceed the maximum kWh. This will imply managing what appliances can use this electricity and which ones cannot. The problematic presented here can be analyzed by using teletraffic theory. In a communication network there are nodes requesting to use the resources to transmit their information, and there is a maximum bandwidth that these nodes can use. In this project, the appliances request kWh instead of kbps, and the bandwidth is the maximum electricity usage per household.
