Abstract: Remote Monitoring System is one of the fast developing technologies, used for many industrial as well as domestic applications. This project proposes a compact design and development of remote monitoring system for a three-phase generator. Arduino microcontroller and ZigBee based Wireless devices are used for monitoring the operating point of three phase generator remotely. The Arduino microcontroller helps in monitoring the three phase current, voltage, temperature and power of the generator. The ZigBee-based wireless device is used as a wireless communication between the transmitter and receiver modules. The processed parameters are displayed on 20x4 line Liquid Crystal Display(LCD) which makes the system user friendly. An alert system is enabled through Arduino microcontroller if the load current is more than the full load capacity of the generator.
Keywords: Remote monitoring, Arduino, ZigBee, 20x4 LCD.
