Zigbee based Wireless Sensor Network for Smart Energy Meter

  • 1. Department of Electronics Engineering Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh (U.P) India.


Wireless sensor networks are expanding across a wide range of application scenarios. The most widely used transmitter is "ZigBee," which is used in wireless sensor networks. Based on the IEEE standard known as IEEE 802.15.4, ZigBee is an enabling low-cost technology that offers minimal energy consumption and a low data rate. It is used for remote control, medical aid, home automation, industry control, and other wireless sensor applications, in addition to wireless sensor networks and personal area network applications. This paper aims to develop a wireless sensor network and a protocol for smart energy meter applications. Our proposed system comprises a digital energy meter, a ZigBee coordinator, and a management application. A terminal alert and a cover alarm can be automatically sent to the management software by the wireless meter reading system once it has read the unit. Mistakes from Errors in leakage metering reading to manual meter reading can be avoided. This proposed system will improve efficiency by reducing labor intensity to liberate labor and force. The system setup can accommodate a large number of energy meters with sufficient hop network depth to detect a new energy meter automatically. The technology can be widely used in wireless monitoring and control applications because of its low cost, low power consumption, extended battery life, and mesh networking's ability to extend high reliability to a broader range. To connect a variety of low-power devices wirelessly, ZigBee will satisfy the rising demand. For the future generation of industrial technologies, ZigBee will be deployed.
