Power Management in Home Area Network Using Zigbee Protocol

R. Ramalakshmi | G.Balaji

Abstract: The power management scenario in India, is not efficient. To conserve energy, government applies power cuts, resulting in lot of inconvenience as even the essentials are cut off. Another way to save power is to train the staff to use power efficiently. This is again a method which is neither foolproof nor easy to monitor. This paper describes a proposed system which helps use the available energy efficiently. A Controller system has been developed that manages efficient utilization of power over an electrical network and helps conserve energy by making authorities keep a check on energy usage. To demonstrate this wireless sensor network have been developed which consists of number of nodes. ZigBee protocol has been used for the wireless communications. The main advantage of using ZigBee protocol is low power requirement which result in longer battery life. As a proof of concept PIC based prototype of proposed system is designed and developed for small application.
