Measurement and Control of Electrical Energy for the Effi cient Energy Management


Manish Kumar Ghodki


“Measurement and Control of Electrical Energy for the Effi cient Energy Management” is based on smart energy metering which has its own distribution, controlling and monitoring system for the amount of electrical energy (KWh). It is also equipped with the control of alternative source of electricity (solar energy). This hardware project measures the electrical energy (kWh) as well as controls the amount of electrical energy from supply to load during day and night automatically. The measurement can be performed up to ten lac (10,00,000) units and controlling can be upto two lac (2,00,000) units with a unit range selection of 0–20 units and 20–2,00,000 units. In the controlling part, when the energy consumption from the main supply exceeds the preset limit, then the main supply will be automatically tripped and the project provides the alternative power supply in the absence of this mains supply by using the renewable (solar) energy source.
