Advances in bilateral communication technology foster the improvement and development of home energy management system (HEMS). This paper proposes a new HEMS to optimally schedule home energy resources (HERs) in a high rooftop photovoltaic penetrated environment. The proposed HEMS includes three stages: forecasting, day-ahead scheduling, and actual operation. In the forecasting stage, short-term forecasting is performed to generate day-ahead forecasted photovoltaic solar power and home load profiles; in the day-ahead scheduling stage, a peak-to-average ratio constrained coordinated HER scheduling model is proposed to minimize the one-day home operation cost; in the actual operation stage, a model predictive control based operational strategy is proposed to correct HER operations with the update of real-time information, so as to minimize the deviation of actual and day-ahead scheduled net-power consumption of the house. An adaptive thermal comfort model is applied in the proposed HEMS to provide decision support on the scheduling of the heating, ventilating, and air conditioning system of the house. The proposed approach is then validated based on Australian real datasets.
