Model no:180 These days the electricity department has to send employees for taking meter reading every month, which is an expensive and time consuming job. This project provides a convenient and efficient method to avoid this problem. The electricity office can take the readings of consumers using GSM at their place. The main objective of the project is to develop a wireless based energy meter reading system. Also the loads can be controlled GSM using this project.
The microcontroller takes the reading from the energy meter and displays the reading on the LCD. The reading of the energy meter is also sent to the control room by a message via GSM modem.
This GSM modem also receives commands from any cell phone to control the electrical loads. It uses a standard energy meter that delivers output pulses for microcontroller to do counting for necessary action. On receiving command it can even switch ON/OFF the load.
The power supply consists of a step down transformer 230/12V, which steps down the voltage to 12V AC. This is converted to DC using a Bridge rectifier. The ripples are removed using a capacitive filter and it is then regulated to +5V using a voltage regulator 7805 which is required for the operation of the microcontroller and other components.
