Embedded Power and Energy Management System Using Low Power Arduino

Authors(2) :-M. Siva, V. Vijayasheela

Electronic metering technology greatly reduces the man power and time and also made easy for remote area people for paying the bill. It also reduces the non-payment of the bill and avoids the mistake due to manual calculation. Power theft is one of the greatest problems that our country is facing and with the help of this AEM power theft can be greatly reduced. This energy meter always have predefined value of amount of electricity that the user is going to use .If there is any huge difference between the amount of power transmitted (including technical losses) and amount of power being billed then it comes to the conclusion that there exist an power theft .This power theft can be greatly reduced with the help of AME. This paper deals with automatic meter reading and theft control system. In the proposed work, the total power consumption at the load end will be calculated by using arduino microcontroller and it is used to detect any theft between energy meter and service line.
