Power demand side management (DSM) regulations stipulate that electric power grid enterprises of cities and provinces must complete their target of power saving through efficient power plant (EPP) programs. This investigation studies power DSM and establishes a supervision and evaluation system for the EPP program. The proposed system can be used to evaluate the performance of an EPP program such as electricity saving and investment benefit. A model of EPP is established. A cuckoo search algorithm is applied for the model optimization and its result gives an optimal decision scheme. Finally, a fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method is used to assess an EPP program. The results show that the established supervision and evaluation system and the model of an EPP program are effective and applicable for power grid enterprises.
