Management of energy and power using renewable energy sources based on ZigBee

<p> The energy and power used at various areas like households and industries is increasing gradually due to many reasons and there is a need to sustain it. This project introduces a method to reduce the energy used in a household by considering the energy sources and the amount of energy used by the appliances concurrently. Modules are used to measure and check the energy utilized by the appliances using ZigBee. Energy is generated on a conventional basis using three sources: solar panel, wind mill and conventional power. An inverter and a battery are used to connect these sources to a grid. When a device is connected, the units of power consumed are computed and shown on the LCD using LPC2148 microcontroller. The output of the battery is connected to the controller, which shows the voltage of the battery and also selects the best source to be used. Modules use a 5V supply and the controller uses 3.3V power supply. Voltage is controlled with the help of a 7805 voltage regulator and the output of transformer is revised by a rectifier.</p>
