abstract
Demand Control is monitoring commercial or industrial demand spikes and automatically reducing them by controlling the on time of certain loads and or shifting them without hindering facility operations. Such loads could be air conditioning, fans, heaters, chillers, freezers, pumps, and other high energy consuming loads. Our senior design project will consist of a small scale version of industrial loads that are represented by light bulbs. Half of the light bulbs, non-essential loads, will be controlled by a microcontroller that will turn off these lights by lowest priority first when the total power capacity of the system surpasses 70% capacity. This will save energy costs by turning off non-essential loads when they are not needed.
