Abstract

This design is developed with the main aim of assisting energy consumers and utility service providers with an enhanced feature for better home energy management. Automatic generation of the monthly electricity bill avoids the prevailing drawbacks of the current energy measuring system such as time wastage, accuracy issues, human errors and possibility for fraud activities. This system can be effectively used for real time measuring and analyzing of the household energy usage. The device utilizes GSM technology to alert the consumers with energy readings in Kilo Watt hours (kWh). Any individual or an organization with an approved electricity connection by the standard utility service provider can use this device. Crucial parameters of energy appliances such as Power Factor, Rated Power and Root Mean Square (RMS) Current were analyzed with the design obtaining results appropriately. Demand charge can be effectively controlled avoiding the overall household demand exceeding a preset demand value. As evident from the specifications and results this study fulfills a prudent requirement in the home energy management sector.
