ABSTRACT
The Electricity Meter Reading using GSM system consists of GSM Digital Power Meters installed in every consumer unit and a back-end database at the EB office which calculates the amount to be paid according to the number of units consumed. The GSM Digital Power Meter is a single phase digital kWh power meter with embedded GSM modem which utilizes the GSM network to send its power usage reading using Short Messaging Service (SMS) back to the energy provider wirelessly. The user interface also consists of LCD which displays the amount of power consumed. The advantages of the proposed system make the existing system incompetent. It is possible to connect to remote areas as it employs wireless technology. The new system is user friendly, easy to access and far more efficient than the existing system.
