Intelligent building engineering design is enhanced with a new generation of buildings that have all facilities, including electrical, mechanical objects and programmable controllers  which are controlled by computer networks and personal computers. Today, solar energy is usually used in smart home technology. Thus causing it to smart home energy management tries to overcome the non-linear characteristics of the photovoltaic modules by using control Perturbation and observation technique and improve the efficiency of power produced by photovoltaic systems
