Scheming A Model For Smart Energy Meter Using IoT
For power engineers, bill calculation has always been of prime concern. Initially, conventional energy meters were in use that contain a rotating disc for calculating energy consumption. These days, smart meters have been in common use because of their certain advantages in the power distribution sector. They have introduced innovative and effective ways of calculating bills for the consumers. Moreover, with the invention of smart meters, energy theft and other corrupt practices have been prevented to a greater extent. This study aims to propose a smart meter that will indicate real time values of phase voltage, current, instantaneous power, and energy consumption by any user. Furthermore, this real time data will be informed to users through SMS. This proposed system is a novel approach to curtail energy theft, over billing, and departmental corruption.
