Title: METHOD FOR MANAGING A MODE OF OPERATION OF AN ITEM OF EQUIPMENT
Abstract:
Certain items of equipment can operate according to a plurality of operating modes comprising a deep slumber mode in which an energy consumption of said item of equipment is a minimum, an active mode in which the energy consumption of the item of equipment is a maximum and a light slumber mode in which the energy consumption of the item of equipment is intermediate between the deep slumber mode and the active mode, switchover from the deep slumber mode to the active mode being slower than switchover from the light slumber mode to the active mode. The method allows an electrical meter supervising an electrical network to which an item of equipment is connected to control the switchover of said item of equipment to light slumber mode. For this purpose, the meter implements a human presence detection procedure based on an analysis of the electrical consumption in the electrical network and activates the light slumber mode of the item of equipment when a user is detected.
