Monitoring Energy Consumption System to Improve Energy Efficiency

The Portuguese Plan for Energy Efficiency sets targets for the years 2016 to 2020 in which energy efficiency is a European priority covering all Member States. Energy efficiency is a topic that is increasing in recent years and national and international laws has been made in order to force and indicate solutions to provide significant energy efficiency improvements to being made in order to improve energy efficiency in companies and public institutions. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a concept created to define the technological revolution of the devices used in day-to-day connected to the global Internet network. Thereby associating the need for monitoring of energy consumption to the paradigm of the Internet of Things, we intend to design and build an automatic system that allows monitoring and control of electrical devices connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi denominated by iPlug. This system is a smart plug that fits a generic socket and provides information of power consumption (s) device (s) connected to it by calculating the current and the line voltage, this information is stored in a database. The iPlug also lets you know whether the outlet is on or off, change your status, and access to consumption data through two applications, a Web portal and an application for iOS.
