  • Publication number: 20140032140
    Abstract: The invention relates to a system of domestic appliances, wherein the domestic appliances are operated from a branch of an, in particular public, supply system for electrical energy at a customary system frequency, wherein, in particular, the consumed energy which is supplied to the branch can be detected, and wherein a display and measurement unit is present, this allowing the energy consumed by an individual domestic appliance to be displayed and measured. In this case, the functioning thereof for determining the consumption of the individual domestic appliance is based on the analysis of a characteristic structure, which can be assigned to the individual domestic appliance, of current and/or voltage profiles within system period time intervals during operation of the individual domestic appliance, wherein, for individual domestic appliances of which the inherent characteristic structure is small, said characteristic structure can be formed or added to by a structure generator (ESM, ES1 to ESN).

  • Publication number: 20130342016
    Abstract: A domestic appliance includes a mains connection at which an electrical mains voltage can be applied relative to a reference potential, a main supply unit supplying an electrical operating voltage from the mains voltage at its output, and at least one electrical consumer receiving the operating voltage. An electrical switch electrically isolates at least the output of the main supply unit from the mains connection, when the domestic appliance is in a standby mode. Provided separate from the main supply unit is a voltage supply which is coupled to the mains connection and which taps the mains voltage at the mains connection in the standby mode and supplies a supply voltage from the mains voltage for switching the electrical switch to an electrically conducting switching state to thereby switch the domestic appliance from the standby mode to an operating mode.
