A Smart Meter Design and Implementation Using ZigBee Based Wireless Sensor Network in Smart Grid

Pars, Tufan
In this paper Wireless Sensor Home Area Network (WSHAN) with ZigBee interfaced smart meter is designed and implemented. Because of the increasing demands on electricity, traditional electric grid needs to be replaced with intelligent, robust, reliable and costly effective smart grid applications. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) has a critical role to set up a reliable and costly effective smart electric power grid applications. Our system measures energy usage, logs data real time and shows time of use (TOU) values. The system also controls any device connected to power outputs. While powering on and off, zero-cross of AC signal is detected to calculate phase shift. The smart meter provides correct power usage and transmits data with ZigBee to PC (Personal Computer). The user monitors the power information and remotely controls the system.


A Survey on Multipath Routing Protocols for QoS Assurances in Real-Time Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
Hasan, Mohammed Zaki; Al-Rizzo, Hussain; Al-Turjman, Fadi (2017-01-01)
The vision of wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSNs) is to provide real-time multimedia applications using wireless sensors deployed for long-term usage. Quality of service assurances for both best effort data and real-time multimedia applications introduced new challenges in prioritizing multipath routing protocols in WMSNs. Multipath routing approaches with multiple constraints have received considerable research interest. In this paper, a comprehensive survey of both best effort data and real-time m...
Implementation of the heed clustering protocol with sleep scheduling in tinyos 2 on a wireless sensor network testbed
Özkan, Canay; Uysal Bıyıkoğlu, Elif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
Energy efficient operation is often critical for wireless sensor networks (WSN), because network nodes operate on limited batteries. The aim of this thesis is to realize an implementation of an energy-efficient, scalable and competitive clustering protocol, HEED on MICAz motes using TinyOS 2 with further energy-efficiency enhancements. A working testbed is constructed, on which the network organizes itself to send periodic sensor measurements to a central station. In order to control overall energy consumpt...
A cross-layer protocol for wireless sensor networks
Akyildiz, Ian F.; Vuran, Mehmet C.; Akan, Ozgur B. (2006-03-24)
Severe energy constraints of battery-powered sensor nodes necessitate energy-efficient communication protocols in order to fulfill application objectives of wireless sensor networks (WSN). However, the vast majority of the existing solutions are based on classical layered protocols approach. It is much more resource-efficient to have a unified scheme which melts common protocol layer functionalities into a cross-layer module for resource-constrained sensor nodes. To the best of our knowledge, to date, there...
Path planning and localization for mobile anchor based wireless sensor networks
Erdemir, Ecenaz; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
In wireless sensor networks, sensors with limited resources are distributed in a wide area. Localizing the sensors is an important problem. Anchor nodes with known positions are used for sensor localization. A simple and efficient way of generating anchor nodes is to use mobile anchors which have built-in GPS units. In this thesis, a single mobile anchor is used to traverse the region of interest to communicate with the sensor nodes and identify their positions. Therefore planning the best trajectory for th...
Design and implementation of wireless sensor networks utilizing sector antennas
Bilgin, Yusuf Alper; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2016)
This thesis considers the medium access control layer (MAC) for a wireless sensor network (WSN) utilizing sector antennas. We propose a communication protocol including a neighbor discovery protocol, a routing protocol and a transmission protocol similar to ALOHA for WSNs operating with sector antennas. The main contribution to the literature is to compare the outcome of using sector antennas with using omnidirectional antennas in WSNs by both experimental studies and simulations. Experimental studies compa...
