The purpose of this method is to find the excess load usage of an industry and to control that by terminating the power for that particular industry. This is done with the help of GSM technology. This system is designed to send SMS alerts whenever the voltage/current exceeds the predefined limits using GSM. If there is no response from the Industrialist then the whole supply will be permanently turned off. By this way, we can save the power consumed in Industries and theft can be controlled.
