Smart Meter Billing and Power Consumption Monitoring System using Arduino Microcontroller

Swati Khokale, Patil Kaveri, Patil Nikita


The technology of e-metering (Electronic Metering)
has gone through rapid technological advancements and there is
increased demand for a reliable and efficient Automatic Meter
Reading (AMR) system. Now days, large amount of electrical
power is consumed daily both domestically as well as industrially
and energy meters are meant to calculate the consumed energy to
facilitate the billing according to the consumption. An employee
of Electricity board that is reader travels for a long distance
and take reading manually to prepare the bill. The number of
electricity consumer is increasing in great extend. Traditional
manual meter reading was not suitable for longer operating
purposes as it spends much human and material resources
going to each and every consumer house and generating bill
is a laborious task and require lot of time. Errors may get
induced at some stage of billing like errors with electromechanical
meter, human reading errors and also while processing the
bills. There are many cases where the bill is paid and then is
shown as due amount in the next bill. Manual operator can not
find unauthorized connection or Mal practices carried out by
consumer to reduce or stop meter reading/power supply.
To overcome this pitfalls proposed system introduces new methods
for reducing manpower and save the time and also reducing
the electricity frauds. Smart meter will be connected to web
server through Internet. Smart meter consist of Arduino microcontroller,
Relay, Counter, Socket, etc. Arduino port is use to
control power consumption and relay will operate the socket.
Counter will count power unit. Power supplier will deduct the
bill of electric meter through consumer registered bank account
which will be optional for those people who don’t have their
bank accounts.
