Abstract

KWh meters is a tool to measure the electric energy usage with "kilowatt hour" unit. The current KWh metersdoesn’t yet have a remote monitoring feature, so the process for monitoring, reading the value of electrical energy, as well as making the termination and turning on the kWh meter is done directly to the customer's premises. Surely this will take a long time and the service becomes less satisfactory. The objective of this research is to make a model of kWh reading system (kilowatt-hours) PLN household power meter for recording of electrical energy used as well as providing information on power usage that is used in real time and accessible through communication network. kWh model reading system is designed as a tool for reading kWh postpaid electricity meter PLN households in the recording of electronic meters automatically made from a distance using the communication media. To know the incoming load through kWh Meters postpaid paired a current sensor that serves to detect electric current. Load data in the process using a microcontroller directly displayed to the LCD screen and automatically stored data into the database.
