I belong to a village of Odisha, India where frequent power cut is very common. It hampers the life of every one. During my childhood days continuing studies after dusk was a real challenge. Due to this problem I designed a solar system for my home on a experimental basis. I used a solar panel of 10 Watt, 6V for lighting few bright LEDs. After facing lot of hardships the project was successful. Then I decided to monitor the voltage, current, power & energy involved in the system. This brought the idea of designing an ENERGY METER. I used Arduino as the heart of this project because it is very easy to write code in its IDE and there are huge numbers of open source library available in the internet which can be used according to the requirement. I have experimented the project for very small rated (10Watt) solar system but this can be easily modified to use for higher rating system.
