Authors

Abstract

Power trip main switch control through network communication system is a project to control and monitor the electrical main power for home and industry. It is a safety system that apply to minimize damage for home electrical equipment, humans & animals due to electric shock.  The main idea is to control the system of main switch ELCB which also able to monitor the current state of the main switch ELCB. Nowadays most of all buildings especially at residential area and shoplot are equipped with a main switch ELCB. With this project, when the main switch ELCB cut off automatically, it will send notification via phone so that the user is notified and gain fast respond to switch it back on just by using the phone at anywhere around the world. There is lack of IoT project for main switch controller in the market, so with this prototype, it will lead towards more opportunity in the market to bloom. This project consist of 4 main component, database log(thingspeak), ELCB motor controller, micro-controller(arduino), UPS(uninterruptible power supply).
