Design of a web based (IoT) battery monitoring system for a power distribution substation
MetadataShow full item record
Battery management system (BMS) forms a crucial system component in various applications like DC source for power substations, electric vehicles (EV), hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), and uninterrupted power supplies (UPS), telecommunications and so on. The accuracy of these systems has always been a point of discussion as they generally give an error of maximum 10% considering all the parameters together. In this paper a system is proposed which will be developed using low cost microcontroller of MSP430 family for measurement of temperature and voltage parameters of lead-acid batteries in distribution substations. Distribution substation use batteries as a DC power supply for relays and hence monitoring such batteries will be the main focus of this project. The project shall provide remote substation battery monitoring and control over the WEB using Internet of Things (IoT) technology.
