Effective energy management and control is an important and urgent issue in the emerging and developing countries, so as to achieve their sustainable growth, because of poor quality of power supply by their electric power companies. In order to come up with the frequent electric power outage by the power company, most of buildings in developing and emerging countries install a power generator. Although because of poor control system in the premises, utilization factor of output capability of power generators is typically low except at peak periods. To improve the utilization factor of power generator, we propose a system, which can manage power segments in the building using SCB (Smart Circuit Breaker). SCBs are connected by wireless technologies with battery backup, and set their power capping based on the indication issued by central manager. The central manager computes power capping threshold of each SCB using the proposed algorithm, in real-time fashion. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm can optimize the required capacity of the local power generator and that we need a feedback-looped adaptive threshold calculation algorithm.
