Embedded Based Power Tampering Detection And Automatic Meter Reading Sytem Using GSM


Our country has been ranked high in the list of ‘countries with high power theft’. Power theft occurs in various areas such as Industrial, Commercial and Residential areas. The theft by residential customers are responsible for most of the power loss in the country. A significant amount of this power theft is done at domestic levels by the tampering of the electricity meter.

The scope of this project is to identify three of the most commonly adapted techniques of power tampering and in furtherance, intimate to the electricity board or the authority concerned about the occurrence of the theft. This module of the project makes sure that valuable amounts of power can be saved by taking immediate action against those involved in the practice of meter tampering.

The three common methods of power tampering are NEUTRAL TAMPERING, CURRENT REVERSAL TAMPERING AND MAGNETIC TAMPERING. In our project, we detect these tampering methods by means of respective sensors and intimate it to the Electricity Board via GSM.

Further, the project also aims to eliminate manual manipulation of readings by linemen. The project provides an enhanced power tariff and billing system by transmitting the units of power used and the appropriate bill amount to the user and the electricity board. The entire transmission and reception process is done in a wireless medium.
