Abstract

Algeria's national gas and power provider is called Sonelgaz. It is in charge of producing, distributing, and transmitting power throughout the nation. Sonelgaz has encountered several difficulties in effectively supplying electricity to consumers and keeping track of their usage over the years. One of the primary problems is that client consumption is not accurately metered. Algeria has a large number of old power meters that don't give precise readings of the real electrical usage. Customers receive inaccurate bills as a result of this. It also makes it more challenging for Sonelgaz to monitor usage trends and detect power thieves. Poor metering infrastructure has led to disputes between Sonelgaz and customers over excess bills. In recent years, the idea of a smart power meter has become increasingly popular all around the world. Traditionally, readings must be taken in the meter reading room. As a result, tracking and keeping tabs on your electricity usage is a time-consuming and annoying chore. Furthermore, a lot of us worry about our large electricity bills at the end of the month, therefore, we have to periodically check the energy meter. However, what if we could track how much electricity we consume from anywhere in the world? In this paper, we will develop a new multi-function smart electricity measurement device using an ESP32 microcontroller and the mobile Blynk app. The smart electricity measurement device displays the voltage, current, power factor, and power consumption in real time. In addition, it displays the cost of electricity in dollars and the total energy consumed in kWh, saving you both time and money. The consumer's electricity will be remotely off if the bills are not paid.
