  • Patent number: 10778461
    Abstract: In an appliance control system, a receiver receives, from a terminal device used by a first user, an instruction for remotely controlling an appliance installed in a home. A determiner determines whether a second user is present in a location in which an appliance-to-be-instructed is installed. When it is determined that the second user is not present in a location in which the appliance-to-be-instructed is installed, an appliance controller controls the appliance on the basis of the instruction. On the other hand, when it is determined that the second user is present in the location in which the appliance-to-be-instructed is installed, the appliance controller does not control the appliance.

  • Patent number: 10700524
    Abstract: A photovoltaic power conditioning system (PV-PCS) outputs power generated by a photovoltaic panel. An electric vehicle power conditioning system charges an electric vehicle with power supplied from a commercial power system or the power outputted from the PV-PCS. The PV-PCS directly or indirectly receives limitation information from a server. During a limitation period in which the power to be outputted from the PV-PCS is limited, a management device obtains a suppressed power generation amount on the basis of a readily estimated power generation amount of the PV panel, and controls the PV-PCS so that charging power increases by having the suppressed power generation amount as an upper limit.
