An Energy Efficient Power Usage Controlling and Monitoring using Wireless Sensor Network


Background/Objectives: This paper mainly focuses on efficient power usage. Now a day’s power usage is a critical issue in home appliances. Mainly concentrating on to reduce power consumption in home appliances. The goal is to develop a centralized control, monitoring and power consumption calculation. To have the single centralized point provides connecting to all building services for cost reduction by using a wireless sensors network. Data transferred from the sub systems to centralized controlling point. Methods/Statistical Analysis: For analyzing the data in the proposed system by using visual basic technology. Previously we have only the monitoring system and now we are controlling by using the different sensors like PIR, IR, Temperature, LDR, and Humidity adding to the controller. The appliances will work in the presence of human beings and controlled automatically. Findings: The proposed system having multi sensors and wireless communication technology in order to control light, fan and air conditioner to the surrounding situations. Home appliances are connected through a wireless communication sensor network to centralized control. Not only considering the external sources calculation of power usage also monitored. Along with these in this proposed solution we can able to monitor and control and maintain the large structures and power usage bill proving system with a simple digital automation system and it can be able to manage very large area with a single monitoring system architecture proposed by an embedded decision making and automatic controlling unit and for effective monitoring a software application on visual basic and it can be practically implementable architecture in real time usage. Applications/Improvements: Applicable to use in industries and as well as home also for efficient usage of power and reducing the power consumption.
