This paper proposes a novel embedded communication strategy for in-home energy routers (IHER). It is based on power/signal dual modulation principle, and applied in the small scaled community energy local area network (E-LAN). The proposed communication strategy multiplexes power converters as data transmitters, and thus highly cooperation and synchronization between power flow and information flow are achieved. Besides, system reliability is enhanced since communication module has practically the same reliability as the power module. A typical IHER’s structure and operation principles are presented, based on which detailed design of embedded communication is proposed. For distributed power management of community E-LAN, both intra-IHER communication and inter-IHERs communication are involved, and their channels are modelled mathematically. IHER interconnection interface converters play a significant role in power exchange between IHERs, and their operation modes are analyzed in detail. Finally, an experimental prototype is built to validate the feasibility of the proposed method.
