This project is an electronic system which can be implemented by using Arduino & GSM Module to give a command and receive feedback. We will use the technique of power shedding.
Skyfi Labs gives you the easiest way to learn and build this project.
Electricity transmission and distribution systems are among the most important technologies serving the world today bringing clean and useful energy to meet the demand of end users in many parts of the world. However, in the light of concerns on energy security and access, environmental impacts of energy and depletion and rising costs of non-renewable energy resources, these existing energy distribution systems have begun to show signs of age, inflexibility, vulnerability, high costs, and inefficiencies. Much has to be done to address these challenges facing centralized and large-scale power transmission and distribution. Smart energy distribution system is the most recommended system in the fast-growing energy demand era .it is used for the purpose of automatic controlling, distribution and monitoring. For the rapid transmission and well-calculated power shedding. The system has a manual and automatic approach. At the same time, distributed energy is becoming increasingly widespread and important, and entail the development and use of new and innovative approaches and technologies in energy supply and distribution.
Following are the key components which will be required for the project:

The common supply is distributed between two relays, each of relay is connected to the step-down transformer(220V-12V). The 12volt supply is given to both of the load relays and then power supply to cities as per the time scheduling of supply. All the four relays are interconnected. The ground of Arduino, Relays, GSM module, current sensor and RTC are common to avoid malfunction. All of the devices get the command from Arduino. The system works on power shedding, fault detecting, and route diverting. The power allocation is done first and time is allocated. As soon as the supply is given to the operating relay, it gives to the transformer. The Arduino gives a command that which relay will supply as the Arduino receives the time data from RTC. Transformer gives the supply to the second relay which directly connected to it. This relay sends the current to current sensorACS712, it senses the current and gives consumption quantity to Arduino and the continues to flow. If the current limit overreaches the allocated power, then Arduino sends the message to the registered mobile number of overload condition through the GSM module.
