ABSTRACT
Air-conditioning (AC) systems have the highest power consumption among the appliances and consumer devices used at residential homes and buildings. Reducing their energy use will lower peak time usage and lower CO2 emissions. Recently, employment of the Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) to the power grid has smartened the grid. In the smart grid new opportunities emerge for AC energy consumption control. The aim of this paper is to reduce the air conditioning energy consumption of residential customers. It proposes an architecture that provides easy management and control using sensor network web services. A simulation thermal model of a house considers house data and outside temperature is presented. Simulation results showed a proposed temperature control method can have significant energy saving while maintaining customer comfort.
