Framework for Modeling and Simulation of Household Appliances
This paper describes a framework for simulating household appliances in Simulink. Typical Norwegian household equipment have been analyzed based on their characteristic behavior, to establish the requirement for synthesizing and recreating their current waveform, harmonic currents and phase shift. Both detailed simulation of the current waveform and RMS currents for simulation over longer time periods are implemented. Models for several appliances can be integrated with the Simscape Power System toolbox in Simulink and connected to single-phase or three-phase grid models. Simulations are verified with experimental measurements for a selection of household appliances.
