Abstract: This paper introduces an intelligent geyser usage profiling system to provide peak demand side management and improve geyser efficiency in a typical household. The system comprises of a PIC microcontroller used to determine individually based warm water usage profiles on the user. Based on the profile, the controller regulates the temperature of the geyser according to the demand of the user without manual intervention. By doing so the amount of heat lost by the geyser is reduced, saving the consumer money and reducing the overall demand on Eskom at the same time.
