4. The Digital Power Network (DPN) is an energy-on-demand approach. In terms of Internet of Things (IoT), it treats the energy itself as a thing' to be manipulated (in contrast to energy as the thing's enabler'). The approach is mostly appropriate for energy starving micro-grids with limited capacity, such as a generator for the home while the power grid is down. The process starts with a request of a user (such as, appliance) for energy. Each appliance, energy source or energy storage has an address which is able to communicate its status. A network server, collects all requests and optimizes themore »
