These meter readings are used for electricity bill calculation and this bill sent to consumer house by post. electric) and transferring that data to a central database for billing. and analyzing. most of the houses in Pakistan have the traditional mechanical watt hour meters and the billing system is not automated [1]. In this .AMR technologies include handheld. Literature Review Automatic meter reading. and status data from energy metering devices (gas. or AMR. mobile and network technologies based on telephony platforms (wired and wireless). so the main objective of this project is to reduce the laborious task and financial wastage. At the end of each month a person from the electricity board goes to every house and takes the meter reading manually. Problem Statement At present. 3. If the manual meter reading and bill data entry process can be automated then it would reduced the laborious task and financial wastage. This timely information coupled with analysis can help both utility providers and customers better control the use and production of electric energy. Objectives of Project Energy meter reading is a monotonous and an expensive task. Apart from being a boom. But a new technology is named Automatic Meter Reading System is discuses.1. The procedures of sending the bills to customer are very laborious and cumbersome. or water consumption. Customer goes to electricity department for paying this bill amount. Another advantage is that billing can be based on near real-time consumption rather than on estimates based on past or predicted consumption. Methodology for Implementation of Project This energy meter is a single phase energy meter which can measure wattage up to 10kwatt. AMR wipes out all the cons of conventional systems. “Automatic Electric Meter Reading (AMR) System” is a metering system that is to be used for data collecting from the meter and processing the collected data for billing and other decision purposes. But in this technique we are required great number of persons for reading the meters. is the technology of automatically collecting consumption. troubleshooting. or power line transmission. Now the meter reader people goes to each meter and take the meter reading manually to issue the bill which will later be entered in the billing software for billing and payment automation. But in this project AMR technology is based on RF 433Mhz transceiver 4.if load is increased from 10kw then it could be damaged. radio frequency (RF). diagnostic. Automatic Meter Reading System is a sophisticated system which allows companies to collect the reading without visiting the site 2. This technology mainly saves utility providers the expense of periodic trips to each physical location to read a meter. gas usage.

Voltage sensor can measure 220v ac single phase line. current. These current and voltage value are captured and converted it into wattage. current and voltage. To make this meter smarter. voltage and temperature data is collected from controller and send it on 433 MHz transmitter. We used pic16f876a microcontroller to measure current. 433 MHz receiver receives this data on control unit and sends it to the computer using serial port. This system also measure frequency and display it on LCD This energy. The max current sensor measurement rating is up to 45A. 5. This meter has also a reverse flow power protection meter. we installed temperature sensor for temperature measurement for heat control. An LCD is installed on Energy meter which display energy. Project Schedule Plan Sample of work schedule is given below. The range of this transmitter is up to 500 meter. All this process is done in real time. This wattage value is further converted into energy and units. Lab view based GUI software collects this data on serial port. This meter has an over current and over voltage protection for protecting meter from damage. All above hardware is an embedded system. After processing on this data. we used a current sensor and voltage sensor for measuring current and voltage respectively.

GUI software displays it on screen.
