The patent application (Publication Number: US20240039290A1) describes an apparatus and method for managing power distribution between multiple electrical power sources and loads. The apparatus includes a controller and a plurality of switches, each comprising a transistor and an electromechanical relay, to connect various electrical loads to either a first or second power source. The controller monitors power generation and consumption, directing excess power to a storage device or redistributing it among loads based on predefined criteria. Additionally, the apparatus can incorporate a photovoltaic generator, an inverter, and a utility electrical grid as power sources, with the ability to disconnect and connect loads efficiently.

Furthermore, the method outlined in the patent involves monitoring power output and consumption, determining power differentials, and instructing a storage device to store excess power. By utilizing the plurality of switches with transistors and electromechanical relays, the method enables seamless switching between power sources for optimal load management. The method also includes provisions for reducing power output when the storage device is full, ensuring efficient utilization of generated power. Overall, the apparatus and method offer a sophisticated solution for balancing power distribution in a multi-source, multi-load electrical system, enhancing efficiency and reliability in power management.
