Abstract

Over the years, in Nigeria and most other African Countries, Energy Theft and Irregularities have been attributed to the reason for epileptic power supply across the Sub-region. Particularly in Nigeria, successive administrations have invested heavily in Power Utility Companies to ensure adequate power supply to meet with the electric power demand of the people, but no successful achievements have been recorded owing to the poor management of the power utility facilities by its staff on one side and incessant stealing of power supply by its customers on the other side. This heinous act both from the side of the staff or the supplier and consumers of electricity have continued to dash government hope of putting an end to the erratic power supply in the country. This paper therefore, presents a smart system to be named EMMs (Energy Meter Monitoring & Control System) for single phase power supply. The system is to be used for monitoring and controlling of Energy Meters using GSM Based technology. The main component used to realize the design of this system is AT89C52 Microcontroller. The input of the microcontroller is connected to a power supply detector circuit with LM315 and LM7805 Regulators respectively. While the output is connected to a Latching Relay and to the Load. Test results showed that this system is robust as it saves time and mitigate labour cost during bill assessment. It also reduces Energy theft and provides freedom to power utility companies to take actions against alien customer and staff who connive to steal power supply.
