Abstract

A Monitoring and logging system for Emergency Power System (EPS) reduces the risk of power backup interruptions during outages. The reason behind proposing this system is negligence of preventive maintenance of EPS, which may cause disruption due to malfunctioning. Monitoring and logging system are helping in reducing such situations. It monitors the log of EPS on the basis of selected parameters such as voltage, current, temperature and load, and generates alerts in case if any of the selected parameter exceeds from its safe range. After sending alert through SMS via GSM, a preventive measure may be taken to avoid any interruption. EPS systems have enabled the improvement of power source quality, providing clean and uninterrupted power to critical loads such as industrial process controls, computers, medical equipment, data communication systems and protection against power supply disturbances or interruptions. EPS is essential and widely used by industries all over the world to ensure an smooth operation without having the effect of power disruption. A system that is able to monitor this EPS can detect any abnormal activities occurred in the system. In addition, the system can prevent any fault that may affect the whole operations. In this paper, we perform a rigorous analysis of the existing monitoring systems. Subsequently, a monitoring system is proposed and tested. In addition to this, a software application is also developed for logging data for future analysis for management. This system also helps in identifying the root cause along with the frequency of the problem.
