Abstract:

THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING AN INTELLIGENT CUSTOMER LOAD CONTROLLER IMPLEMENTED WITH AN EXPERT SYSTEM. CONVENTIONAL ELECTRICAL LOAD CONTROL DEVICES IMPLEMENT CONTROLLING FUNCTIONS BASED ON PREDETERMINED ALGORITHMS WHICH MAKE ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT TYPICAL USE PATTERNS. USE OF AN EXPERT SYSTEM WITH A LEARNING ALGORITHM IN A LOAD CONTROLLER WOULD PERMIT THE CONTROLLER TO ADAPT ITS CONTROL TO THE PARTICULAR USE PATTERNS OF EACH CUSTOMER. THE USE OF AN INTELLIGENT LOAD CONTROLLER WOULD OFFER MORE EFFECTIVE DEMAND LIMITING AND COST SAVINGS.
