AMI Mesh Networks Based Home Energy Management System
Advanced Metering is expected to be an integral part of energy grid. This paper describes a practical mesh networking solution based on extensions proposed to the routing protocol for low power and lossy networks (RPL) to realize automated metering communications. Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is the way of electricity is measured, consumed and even distributed. Power scheduling is achieved in home area network by power sharing and management. Mesh topology is used to form the home area network. Here we study the impact of the algorithms on the network discovery latency, recovery latency, and packet delivery ratio. Here we propose an efficient scheduling method for home power usage.
