PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The main concept of this project is to design a GSM based automatic energy meter reading system for receiving monthly energy consumption information from a remote location straight to an electricity department as well as to the consumers and also to control the loads through SMS.

At present, electricity department sends employees every month to take meter reading, which is an expensive and time-consuming job. Thus, this project provides a convenient and efficient method to avoid this problem.

The proposed system uses a microcontroller of the 8051 family and a rectified-power supply. In this system, a GSM modem is connected to the microcontroller through a level shifter IC for communication. The relays are controlled by a relay drive IC for switching the loads. The status is displayed on a LCD display which is interfaced to the microcontroller.

This system is connected to an energy meter with a load through opto-coupler IC. The microcontroller reads the pulses from the energy meter to find the energy consumption of the electrical loads. If users want to know the reading information, they can call the GSM modem number to get the reading information by SMS. This GSM modem can also receive the commands form the user phone to control the electrical loads.

This project in future can be implemented to interface with a non-volatile memory IC like EEPROM along with a keypad so that a user can change the mobile number as per the requirement.

Q & A
Q:  How exactly is the pulse reading taken from energy meter?
A:  From any digital energy meter internal circuit that delivers one pulse per a certain fraction of one unit is taken from its blinking LED points.
Q:  Which microcontroller is used in this project?
A:  A 40 pin microcontroller from 8051 family is used in this project.
Q:  What is GSM?
A:  GSM stands for Global System for Mobile communications. It is a communication standard using time division multiple access technique.
Q:  How can I feed the mobile number?
A:  One can feed the mobile number by giving a missed call to the SIM number of the GSM modem.
