  • Smart load management system with an advanced metering infrastructure operates to monitor the electricity consumption by the load and transferring data to the utility grid. It has direct benefit to the end-users by managing the load. This system has incorporated with home appliance for achieving the goal of home energy management system (HEMS) such as efficient energy utilization of house by avoiding the wastage. Efficient loading system can strengthen the efficient power utilization and thus can save the economy greatly. Air conditioner (AC), thermostat associated with a room were selected for this purpose as they have the high demand of electricity consumption. This study mainly focuses on developing the mathematical model and simulate it for the considered home appliances to assess the trend of electricity consumption. Research proved that, considering the ambient temperature developed model can provide the specific instructions for automatic controlling of the appliances which will save the electricity consumption and utility bill of end-users compare to the manual operation of the system. Matlab /Simulink software was used to implement and justify the model.
