This is a complete automated solution for the existing energy distribution and monitoring system. It can monitor the meter readings continuously and take necessary actions to maintain the power grid stable. A Power Line Communication (PLC) based modem is integrated with each electronic energy meter. Through PLC the meters communicate with the coordinator. Coordinator makes use of GPRS modem to upload/download data to/from internet. A personal computer with an internet connection at the other end, which contains the database acts as the billing point. Live meter reading sent back to this billing point periodically and these details are updated in a central database. An interactive, user friendly graphical interface is present at user end. All the energy logs, notices from the Government, billing details and average statistics will be available here. The system splits the loads into two: critical loads and non critical loads. This makes the distribution system more intelligent. More over prior information about the power cuts can be done. We can easily implement many add-ons such as energy demand prediction, real time dynamic tariff as a function of demand and supply and so on.

Abstract


This is a complete automated solution for the existing energy distribution and monitoring system. It can monitor the meter readings continuously and take necessary actions to maintain the power grid stable. A Power Line Communication (PLC) based modem is integrated with each electronic energy meter. Through PLC the meters communicate with the coordinator. Coordinator makes use of GPRS modem to upload/download data to/from internet. A personal computer with an internet connection at the other end, which contains the database acts as the billing point. Live meter reading sent back to this billing point periodically and these details are updated in a central database. An interactive, user friendly graphical interface is present at user end. All the energy logs, notices from the Government, billing details and average statistics will be available here. The system splits the loads into two: critical loads and non critical loads. This makes the distribution system more intelligent. More over prior information about the power cuts can be done. We can easily implement many add-ons such as energy demand prediction, real time dynamic tariff as a function of demand and supply and so on.
