In this paper, we have designed and installed a shock or fault protection system for a single-phase home electrical system using Circuit Breaker (CB) devices available on the market, bearing in mind that certain product areas do not provide shock protection to consumers. Our novel Smart Meter Circuit Breaker (SMCB) is designed to achieve a fail-proof shock protection system architecture that could be incorporated into existing Smart Meters (SM) within a Device Level Load Meter (DLLM). We also illustrate how a colonized and alienated appliance Authentication Outlet (AO) system could be used advantageously for a shock or fault protection system and for our novel Restricted Demand Management system with the help of a distinctive load signature alienated appliance AO. Our Restricted Demand Management system could be used together with the Scheduler Demand Management system already on the market. Finally, this paper shows how our SMCB for an alienated appliance AO detection system for a single-phase home system was simulated, built and tested. The proposed home layout and the Restricted Demand Management System are simple to program and implement and help to reduce energy bills as only particular appliances are allowed to operate at certain times during the day and night. The system also restricts some hazard risk appliances from being used at other outlets. Our proposed system is completely hazard, fault and shockproof for a single phase home electrical system.
