A Review on Intelligent Automatic Meter Reading and E-Billing System using Power Line Communication
Priyanka R Daware | S. S. Patil
Abstract: Power is the soul of world which is related to the electricity and -electricity- is the word which now rules the world. So, proper utilization of this commodity is of immense important to us. Hence, it is necessary to measure power consumption. Though many technological innovations are taking place in this world, existing electricity consumption billing process seems in India to be very old fashion and does not meet the latest technology available. In this paper we present digital meter based on a very cheap distributed microcontroller architecture and real time clock, thus eliminating the loss of meter data during power failure. Avoiding the new methods of wireless communication, which are practically very much time consuming to install such a system, and also it is highly cost consuming method on devices interconnected by an expensive commercial bus. The means used for data communication is power line, the power lines which already exist and connect every household in a particular area as it does not require any new installation or erection for establishment of communication channels. So the system doesn't require placing other cables.
