An Intelligent Fuse-box for use with Renewable Energy Sources integrated within a Domestic Environment

Wilson, Peter R., Swabey, Matthew, Brown, Andrew D. and Ross, J. Neil (2005) An Intelligent Fuse-box for use with Renewable Energy Sources integrated within a Domestic Environment At World renewable Energy Congress, United Kingdom.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper outlines a proposal for an intelligent fuse-box that can replace existing fuse-boxes in a domestic context such that a number of renewable energy sources can easily be integrated into the domestic power supply network, without the necessity for complex islanding and network protection. The approach allows intelligent control of both the generation of power and its supply to single or groups of electrical appliances. Energy storage can be implemented in such a scheme to even out the power supplied and simplify the control scheme required, and environmental monitoring and load analysis can help in automatically controlling the supply and demand profiles for optimum electrical and economic efficiency. Simulations of typical scenarios are carried out to illustrate the concept in operation.
