Abstract: In the current scenario of increasing energy demand the utilities are struggling to meet the demand with existing generation. Utilities are forced into load shedding which is an unhealthy practice in the consumer point of view. This project aims to implement a system which limits the load that a single user can connect there by limiting the connected load of a large area. Allowing the user to connect a minimum amount of load enables the user to operate necessary loads for the duration of load shedding thus avoiding the discomfort that may be caused by total power cut. In our current scenario in case of any power failures utilities are notified of the fault through communication initiated by the consumers, in the project we are trying to minimize the time delay for communication by creating a dynamic system which informs the utility about the fault location in a greater accurate manner. The project also aims to implement a home energy consumption awareness interface that prompts the user to reduce energy consumption by means of pre assigned financial plan.
