Demand Side Management (DSM) using the profile steering algorithm has succeeded to improve power quality and reduce energy losses. This paper presents an extension to pro-file steering called "IntervalMerge". IntervalMerge distinguishes itself from the original profile steering algorithm by using non-regular time interval lengths instead of static time interval lengths. This paper shows that by adjusting the profile steering algorithm, the execution time is reduced without significantly affecting the objective value. IntervalMerge is evaluated for different parameters and the achieved results show that by using different time interval lengths, the total execution time can be lowered up to 20%.
