Demand Side Power Management is getting crucial to control the gradual rise of electrical power usage day-by-day. Though, the spread of power saving devices is a huge success throughout the world, yet the demand side power management system have to be more efficient and controlled. Here, an unique power saving strategy was established by intranet based Advanced Supervisory Control system. The core system consists of XPSU, XCU, PBU, DS and ASC. Planning of this system has been done not only to solve the above-mentioned criteria but also to reduce huge electricity demand from national grid. To reduce the National Grid pressure, full utilization of renewable energy grid output is ensured in this strategy. By this Control Plan, maximum 31.9% of the instantaneous power has been saved by 11.11% of System-end ASC Switching. A new idea, Electrical Mapping is also introduced for every different load section; by which the load behavior and power consumption history of our different load site area can be understood.
