Bioinpired efficient energy management

Bioinspired algorithms for the application of smart energy grids
Energy management plays a vital role in maintaining sustainability and reliability of smart grids. It also helps to prevent blackouts. Energy management at consumer’s side is a complex task. It requires efficient scheduling of appliances with minimum delay to reduce peak to average ratio and energy consumption cost. Classification of appliances is based on their energy consumption pattern. Bio-inspired optimization algorithms can be used to efficiently schedule the energy management and help in the reduction on the energy consumption.
