Abstract. The idea of designing a controller for electrical energy management is due to the need for energy saving and intelligent management of the consumed energy. The article presents the designed and studied device designed to limit the consumption of electrical energy within one day and the magnitude of the load current in single-phase circuits. Thus, the consumer (household consumer) of electrical energy can use the energy at time and in amount at will, but within pre-set limits. The paper discusses the principle of operation of the device for power consumption management, its main characteristics, and applications.
