IOT Circuit Breaker Project

This project provides a password based circuit breaker system using IOT. Quite a lot of fatal accidents happen with line men due to electric shocks. It is a result of miscoordination or miscommunication between line men and substations. The project aims to solve this issue by making use of IOT. The IoT based Circuit Breaker is a system with high response time, which uses the interconnection network (internet) to control electrical loads. This system uses a wifi module paired with Atmega328p microcontroller locally to connect to the internet. It is also equipped with an LCD display which shows the state of each load connected to the system, either On or Off. A user or operator at the other end can remotely connect with the system using an internet device and an interface named “IoT Gecko”. Here, the user or operator has to log in on IoT Gecko interface passing through an additional layer of security, that is Password Protection. From the IoT Gecko interface, the user can control the state (on/off) of the connected loads remotely, virtually from anywhere around the globe. This system has an advantage over other remotely operable circuit breakers as it uses a faster medium which is the internet to connect the operator and loads. The additional speed is added with the use of quick electrical circuit breaking solution using the transistors, instead of relays which are comparatively slower as they mechanically break the circuit. This system is indispensable when industrial safety comes to play, as a use of such circuit breaking systems removes any chance of common accidents, such as electrical shocks.
