  title={A Prepaid Energy Meter for Efficient Power Management},
  author={K. Sheelasobanarani and S. Raja and B. Dhanaraj and Kandavel Manickam and K. Raja},
Electricity has become one of the basic requirements for people and widely used for domestic, industrial and agricultural purposes. The energy billing system used nowadays are labor and time consuming. There is no proper way to know the consumer's maximum demand, usage details. This paper presents a prepaid energy meter to facilitate energy consumption measurement and to know consumer's maximum demand. The major components are PIC microcontroller, Voltage and Current transformer, Precision…
