The Design and Development of a Computer Controlled Embedded Energy Management Systems

JOURNAL: Journal of Emerging Technologies and Innovative Research (JETIR)


It is no longer new in and around Africa to witness cases of epileptic power supply, with some streets, towns, villages and even parts of cities attesting to having under par electrical power supply. This paper elucidates the complete operation of a novel embedded systems design, geared towards minimizing energy consumption by automatic regulation and dynamic load shedding among other methods of energy conservation. The Computer Controlled Embedded Energy Management System does the regulation by simply interfacing a Java developed desktop application through serial communication with a PIC microcontroller and other electrical and electronics components which make up the embedded system connected to the house's distribution board. The primary drive behind the development of this system is the statistical outlook which shows that Africa's electrical energy generation is well below demand while demand is on an exponential rise. The complete operation of the system is simulated on the ISIS Proteus simulation package and its methodology of operation is well explained in the content of this paper.
