There has been an ever-growing demand for electrical energy causing supply–demand imbalance in the power system. To overcome this imbalance, a reliable, efficient, less centralised, and more interactive energy management system (EMS) has to be realized. One of the methods to bridge the supply–demand gap using EMS is through Load Management. The evolution of EMS allows loads to respond to the demand (Demand Response) and assist customers to make informed decisions about their energy consumption, adjusting both the timing and quantity of their electricity use. This paper deals with the development of Fuzzy logic-based load management scheme using Demand Response Programs in smart microgrids. The developed system is tested on a smart micro-grid simulator (SMGS) operated in islanded mode installed in the Renewable Energy Laboratory in Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore. © Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd. 2017.
