Optimization of household energy using linear programming

Dixit, S (2014) Optimization of household energy using linear programming. MTech thesis.



Linear programming method used for energy conservation methods. This was used in this operation to install photovoltaic solar cell and solar panels, changing normal windows having double glazed window. It is also changing normal incandescent bulbs to fluorescent light bulbs, also changing the quality of appliances i.e. C class appliances is changed with A class window .The cost of these methods which involve replacing of low class appliance to high class appliances is taken from manufacturer website. When we are doing this then by the appropriate method which we are using we can see that replacing with double glazed window and triple glazed window and normal CFL bulbs are the effective choice for low budget. If we have good budget then there is a good option that we can install a solar panel it is a good and feasible choice. By the calculations and result showed that changing the quality of household appliances is advantageous and good on a little more budget or in terms we can say that when it is more than €20,000 should be there. Recovering period for this budget and for more than this budget is found as less and it can be a less than half a year. By this strategy we have find that for low budget as for €800 is a optimization result and for high budget which is €24000 is a good choice for optimization of energy and we can save energy on a good extent.
