6LoWPAN protocol based wirelessCommunication module as low cost alternativefor GPRS based Smart Energy meters
Energy saved is energy produced!
Energy management can result in huge savings and paybacks.
Government of India is promoting smart energy management system across the country.
Presently smart electrical energy meters are based on GPRS technology which are costly and have recurring cost.
Advantages of SMART Metering
80-100 % improvement in billing efficiency
Gives consumers better access to information and enables them to make more informed decisions on the use of electricity in their homes.
Can immediately control AT&C losses, due to power pilferage, bypassing meters, defective meters, or errors in meter reading.
Every kilowatt of power drawn from the grid is thus accounted for – and billed, thereby reviving DISCOM revenues
Remote Disconnections feature may be present in case power bills are unpaid.
Solution : Our Idea
6LoWPAN protocol based wireless add on module
To be installed on existing non smart energy meters.
These add on modules can form a wireless network among themselves and can exchange data wirelessly.
One of such add on module will have SIM-card based GPRS hardware with GPRS connectivity.
One GPRS 6LoWPAN module connects all 6LoWPAN optical modules to internet.
One Sim Card can serve 50 energy meters within its range.
