Abstract

A Home Energy Management System (HEMS) is expected to be vital for saving energy costs considering the time-varying price of electric power in a smart home environment. Studies on various energy resources such as energy storage systems and fuel cells in a smart home environment are required for HEMS development. In the area of the HEMSs, however, there exists very limited research on heating and air conditioning scheduling incorporating customer convenience. This paper presents a smart heating and air conditioning scheduling method for HEMS that considers customer convenience as well as characteristics of thermal appliances in a smart home environment. The prototype software based on the proposed method for HEMS is also implemented.
