Designing a load agent for power management with a multi-agent home automation system
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, a load agent design is performed for the power management which lets us use existing electrical energy for consumer's needs, comfort and criteria in the areas such as flats and commercial buildings that independently meet their energy need from renewable energy sources. The load agent is designed on the basis of radio-frequency communication so it is a wireless communication system which also has the ability of switching off or making power flow by measuring current of the load. The agent has a flexible structure in order to be compatible with all ambient equipments. It can work with all equipments on the system properly, without any hardware changing. And this is shown in the paper. © 2012 IEEE.
