In order to develop and execute a demand response (DR) system for a household energy management system, an effective and adaptable energy management architecture is provided in this study. Several issues related to the current home energy management system (HEMS) are among those that do not give their consumers a choice to assure user comfort (UC) or a long-term answer to lowered carbon emissions. Our research suggests a programmable heuristic-based energy management controller (HPEMC) to manage a residential building in order to minimize power costs, reduce carbon emissions, increase UC, and lower the peak-to-average ratio (PAR). In this study, the demand-responsive appliance scheduling problem is solved using an energy management system to reduce the cost and a PAR. Numerous case studies have been used to demonstrate the viability of the suggested method. The simulation results confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed method and that it is capable of running a hybrid microgrid in various modes. The findings indicate that the proposed schedule controller saved 25.98% of energy.
