Demand Response Control

Project Overview

Reducing any energy that using in our homes saving our money, increases our energy security, and reduces the pollution that is emitted from non-renewable sources of energy. If we are aiming to install a small renewable energy system to make our own electricity such as a solar electric system or a small wind turbine that are reducing our electricity loads is the first step-saving our money by allowing us to purchase a smaller system for our demands. There are kinds of demand response such as economic demand response and services demand response. demand response is putting to avoid service interruptions during times of supply. Also, Economic demand response is putting to let electricity customers to cut their consumption when the productivity or convenience of consuming that electricity is worth less to them than paying for the electricity. Services demand response consists of a number of specialty services that are needed to ensure the secure operation of the transmission grid and which have traditionally been provided by generators. So, our Demand Response Controller provides an opportunity for consumers to play a significant role in the operation of the electric grid by reducing their electricity usage during peak periods in response. It can lower the cost of electricity in markets, and in turn, lead to lower all methods of engaging customers in demand response efforts include critical peak pricing. It also includes direct load control automatically which provide the ability for power companies by designing a smart home that is consisting of controlling circuits to controlling the demand loads during our times of days.
This project about designing a smart home to control the energy and electricity demand according to a change in the voltage automatically without the need for someone doing it manually. This system is useful for all homes in terms of reducing electricity and power usage or in terms of reduced electricity bills.

Project Objectives

  • Reduce electricity consumption.
  • Increase public awareness in term of electricity bills.
  • Facilitate utility to control the load demand.
  • To defer investment cost.
  • To facilitate the end user to control the electricity bills.
