Reckless consumption of electric power by the consumers is one of the main reasons of depletion of resources (coal, petroleum) and increasing tariff. To improve the current statistics of distribution and consumption the Smart grid brought out a scheme providing the consumer higher control over the power generation and distribution thus increasing the responsibility of the consumer making them more vigilant and providing for sustainable development. Smart Grid improvises the conventional grid on various levels which calls forth the requirement for sophisticated controls carried out in various levels namely, primary, secondary, and tertiary. This paper deals with the intelligence associated with the primary and secondary levels placed in regard with the consumer and micro-grid operation. The role of the consumer as well as micro-grid in intelligent demand management has been demonstrated in this paper through simulations in MatLab using fuzzy logic.
