Abstract

With the aim of reducing cost of electricity consumption and peak load reduction, tools requirement for better managing electricity consumption have become inevitable in recent years. Smart home has some equipment which are controllable and this ability is used for increasing comfort and minimizing electricity cost for residence. As a key component of smart home , Electric Vehicle(EV) ,increase the ability of consumers in participating in Demand Response (DR) programs. One of the key issues raised in this aim is to present a way for entry and exit of this equipment to the network in order to reduce electricity cost for customer. So in this article 5 set of appliances and V2H capability of EV together with Time of Use (TOU)-pricing signal based DR strategy are all combined in a single Home Energy Management (HEM) system for the first time. A Mixed-Integer Linear Programming (MILP) is used for this purpose.
