Design and Implementation of Wireless Electric Power Meter Based on XBee Model

Abstract

Since the 1991 Gulf War, Iraq is still suffering from the crisis and irregular in the processing of electric power to customers. Damage to the network, the old measurement devices for measuring electrical energy consumption, and irregularities and corruption in the process of measuring and calculating fees of the consumption, all these reasons led to the deterioration of the performance of the distribution network in Iraq. In this paper, Wireless Electric Power Meter Based on XBee Module has been designed and implemented which ZigBee wireless sensor network (WSN) will be used for wireless electric power meter communication supported by PIC microcontroller which used for power unit measurements. Wireless metering system will be controlled by central computer which place in base station; also database will be design to record and manage all data and information of consumers.
