Development of Software for the Monitoring System of Power Consumption in a Residential Area
Infocommunication Technologies and Systems
In this graduation qualification work, the issue of ensuring safety in the energy consumption of a home in the absence of a person is being considered. The purpose of this study is to develop a software component for a prototype of a power monitoring system at the minimal cost. To solve this problem at the development stage, it was decided to create a device based on the Arduino microcontroller using easily accessible base components. The software part was developed in Arduino IDE, which by default is functionally connected with the controller of the same name. Methods of electrical calculation and transformation of the obtained data were performed on the basis of Ohm's law and the theory of electrical circuits. In this regard, the main task is to create a properly functioning software code for a prototype capable of taking relatively accurate readings from the power line, and in case of exceeding the permissible current value, disconnect the corresponding load. Ultimately, the device was successfully tested and assembled in a single package, and with the prospect for the future, it is planned to create an improved version, which is an integral production system applicable on a different scale.
