This paper proposes a power scheduling-based communication protocol for in-home appliances connected over home area network and receiving real-time electricity prices via a smart meter. Specifically, a joint media access and appliance scheduling approach is developed to allow appliances to coordinate power usage so that total demand for the home is kept below a target value. Two types of appliances are considered: 1) “real-time” which consume power as they desire; and 2) “schedulable” which can be turned on at a later time. Simulation results indicate that for an appropriate target total power consumption, our scheme leads to a reduced peak demand for the home and produces a demand that is more level over time.
