Design of a Prepaid Power Meter with Communication facility based on GSM Network

  title={Design of a Prepaid Power Meter with Communication facility based on GSM Network},
  author={Rohit Nargotra and Ritula Thakur and Dr. S. Chatterji and Ankur Mahajan},
Prepaid power meter is a new concept in the measurement of electricity consumption on periodic basis. This method of measurement and data collection discards the conventional method of taking the meter reading manually. Though the prepaid energy meter displays the number of electrical units consumed by the user at the load centre but on the other side, there is an urgent need to develop a system which will transmit the units consumed by the individual user to the power development department…
