Internet of Energy: A Design to Manage Energy Consumption for Limited Resources Building

Ahmed Jabbar Abid


This article presents an Internet of thing (IoT) system, which offers a complete energy consumption, monitoring and control. There is a master controller which is a website built with Ajax software to communicate with all the building devices (via a wireless router) which connected to Wi-Fi nodes (ESP8266 nodes) to calculate the consumed energy from each device and compare it with the fluctuated produced energy. The system is designed to keep the consumed energy, lower than the produced energy. This can be achieved by making the user take the decision and divides the building devices into three different priorities (High, Medium and Low). The presented system follows a strategy to reduce the load according to the available power and the device priority.
