Micro-generators are devices installed in houses producing electricity at kilowatt level. These appliances can increase energy efficiency significantly, especially when their runtime is optimized. During power outages microgenerators can supply critical systems and decrease discomfort. In this paper a model of the domestic electricity infrastructure of a house is derived and first versions of algorithms for load/generation balancing during a power cut are developed. In this context a microCHP

The model and the algorithms are incorporated in a simulator, which is used to study the effect of the algorithms for load/generation balancing. The results show that with some extra hardware all appliances in a house can be supplied, however not always at the preferred time.
