Abstract: In this study, advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system is developed for the energy management system. To prove an efficiency of renewable systems such as wind, PV, and thermal systems, demonstration site that has the monitoring system of AMI system is selected. Next, the energy demand profile of the selected site is investigated to analyse effects of the use of renewable sources. To show the saving cost, real-time pricing (RTP) tariff is applied to the load shifting operating scenario. The result illustrates that electricity cost can be decreased about 11,600 KRW/day and it is equivalent to 9.65 USD/day, 3.8% saving of electricity cost.

Keywords: advanced metering infrastructure; AMI; energy operation scenario; load shifting simulation; real-time pricing; RTP; renewable energy.
