Abstract


Maximum power demand management is an embedded based project which may be enforced in industries wherever quantity of active load on the idea of critical and non-critical have to be monitored and controlled. Industries are required to use a private controller to dominate these individual parameters. The aim of this project is to use one controller for distributing power from multiple feeders in sequence, just in case of load overflow and use of generator during an absolutely automatic mode on the idea of prioritizing critical and non-critical loads. This project is helpful for power management in industries, schools and large consumers. In many countries, there is an inadequacy of power. Due to this, the electricity board provides solely restricted quantity of energy to the industries, instructional establishments and different large consumers. If they exceed the restricted quantity, they need to pay penalty. The main objective of our project is to share the total dynamic line load for each phase as per the pre defined feeder rating. When the value is exceeded for specific single feeder, the phase will automatically share the load to the other feeders whenever the demand is required. And when the maximum power is used, i.e., overload occurs, the system will automatically start a generator and the parameters will be monitored and controlled by using embedded system.
