Energy Management System is one of many important concept that is included in the smart city. The energy controller in s smart home decides what amount of energy has to be utilised in a particular time. The main objective of this paper is to design a controller which would take care of the uncertainty that exists in the dynamic model of the power transmission and utilisation region. Here a fuzzy logic controller is designed to utilise the electrical energy economically and uninterrupted. The controller determines the charging rate of the battery in smart home, connecting the smart home to the grid or the battery based on the inputs such as dynamic price of electricity, forecasted load in the smart home and supply power availability. The implementation of the algorithm in the smart home reduces the energy consumption by 42% and thus cost also reduces by a similar margin.
