The project Smart Energy Monitor was done by us a year before.The Goal is to find out the Power Consumption in separate phases in a distribution box and detect any unnecessary use of electrical power. This Device is meant to be used in Industrial sectors as well as in institutions.
The process by which we did is by interfacing clamp CT sensors (SCT013 100 A) with a certain limitation on the current it can measure into separate phases or lines and connect it to an SOC IoT Board. The board is then coded to retrieve the Power RMS value and record it in certain intervals with timestamps. These values are feeded and stored in a cloud, here we use EmonCMS cloud(which uses algorithm to analyze) to determine the power usage and even calculate up to how much money is used on total electricity. This data can be visible in all platforms including Android and IoS.

The main principle behind the CT clamp sensor is :
A magnetic flux is induced in the magnetic core due to the flow of AC being measured.
The Status of the device that is setup can be viewed in all the platforms as well.
Overall it is very simple for the user to understand the data when it is setup. And Therefore the Current can be Monitored And saved Effectively.
