Energy management is not only an efficient tool to overcome the energy shortage but also plays a vital in moving towards the trend of green concept by reducing carbon credit. Demand side management techniques seem a key to catch up these energy crises in all sectors. Demand and supply gap is widening and it could be reduced through addition of generation capacity or manipulating electricity demand. Rapid growth in renewable energy generation is not conceivable under present power system strategies in short time. Similarly, increment in thermal power generation would increase tariff and environmental contaminations. This research proposed Demand Side Management (DSM) techniques to control electricity. It would control the electricity consumption according the to the load profile of Electricity Supply Company (ESC). During peak hours, the designed logic established through a circuit will allow consumers to operate their high priority loads within the range of allocated total demand. The proposed load management schemes would save the customers from major problems due to complete power shutdown and would run their significant devices in peak hours. It would also save the capital and operating costs for stand by generators and Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS).
