smart grid home energy management system(HEMS) queuing theory gateway deployment
By optimizing the network topology, this paper proposes a new method of queuing theory clustering algorithm based on dynamic programming in a home energy management system(HEMS). First, the total cost of the HEMS system is divided into two parts, the gateway installation cost and the data transmission cost. Secondly, through comparing two kinds of different queuing theories, the cost problem of the HEMS is converted into the problem of gateway deployment. Finally, a machine-to-machine(M2M)gateway configuration scheme is designed to minimize the cost of the system. Simulation results show that the cost of the HEMS system mainly comes from the installation cost of the gateways when the gateway buffer space is large enough. If the gateway buffer space is limited, the proposed queue algorithm can effectively achieve optimal gateway setting while maintaining the minimal cost of the HEMS at desired levels through marginal analyses and the properties of cost minimization.
