The existing power grid may not support future growing electric demand. Advanced technologies can be used to improve efficiencies and moderate electric usage by avoiding the need for new generation, transmission and distribution plants. To meet the needs of the future and to fix the problems of the past, smart grid technology harnesses the most advanced(More)
India's Energy consumption rate has increased in 21st century due to its economic growth and steady rise in GDP. The energy demand is increased due to evolution of new electronic gadgets to improve the life style. India's Energy consumption in residential buildings is about 40 percent of total. There is a 30 to 40 percent of energy saving opportunities(More)
This paper discusses the implementation of bi-directional smart energy meter based on the LonWorks technology. A smart meter is an electrical device that records consumption of electrical energy and various other electrical parameters and enables the measurement of energy in both directions (export and import). This digital energy meter has the Neuron(More)
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) shows indoor air is 2-3 times more polluted than the worst outside air. These pollutants also lead to simple asphyxiation as general health hazard which ensures the importance of indoor air quality (IAQ) monitoring. Therefore maintaining a good indoor air quality improves the health zone of the peoples both in urban and(More)
Power line communication (PLC) based simple control application developed using LonWorks network technology is addressed in this paper. PLC enables sharing of data among intelligent devices at hundreds of Mbps (Mega bits per second). Test result of this application at shorter and longer distances and also the communication error that occurred during(More)
In this paper, we present the overview of Power Line Communication Network (PLCN) which is based on the concept of communication with “no new wires”. PLCN uses the already existing power cables as communication medium to transmit the high frequency data/control signals (MHz) over the 230V, 50 Hz AC electrical line. Data rates up to several(More)
