Title Research and evaluate the performance of residence energy management application

 

Currently the efficient use of households being interested research sujet in Vietnam not only is occupped 40% of electricity consumption, but also that is the new and potential research topic. There are some proposed solutions, among them smart metering system has been considered as an effective method for improving the pattern of power consumption of energy consumers [1]. Objectif of this project is research of an in-home energy management application whose objective to minimize the energy expenses of the consumers in term of reduces the contribution of the consumers to the peak load. These applications use Time Of Use (TOU) pricing such as input data. In TOU pricing, the rate of electricity varies in on-peak, moderate-peak and off-peak hours. For example, during peak hours, the load on the grid becomes higher than the base load.

 

Student prerequisites

This subject is dedicated to Vietnamese students as well as foreigner students at Master degree.
