Automatic Meter Reading using Wireless Sensor Module

Authors(2) :-Mohd Zubairuddin, Pooja Thakre

In the recent time huge advances have been made in the way the consumers are charged for the energy they consume. Things are moving out quite fast and areas where there was human intervention are being fast replaced by machines .The concept of e-metering (Electronic Metering) has been progressing at a very fast pace and with the ever increasing customer base the energy transmission companies are in need of a reliable and efficient Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) system. This paper presents a simple inexpensive GSM based Automatic Energy Meter Reading system (AEMR). The proposed system provides a remote access method for the consumer as well as the energy provider .It gives an opportunity to both the consumer as well as the supplier to remotely monitor the energy meters and thus helps in obtaining the energy reading in a hassle free manner .The Automatic Energy Meter Reading system (AEMR) regularly read the energy meter and calculate total amount of bill at the set dead line and sends the message to service provider. From energy meter received data i.e. user name, meter ID, total units with paying amount this message maintained at database server which located at service provider department. This system optimizes the time used in billing and provides a transparent interface to the consumer and the supplier to have an idea about energy consumed and the bill generated AEMR System can provide message at hourly, daily and monthly by the request , reduces the manpower required and prevent pilferage, improves the system efficiency thus turning out to be more efficient that conventional billing system.
