The communication infrastructure is an important part of the future power system. Electrical power network is a very large transportation that covers almost all part of the places in the world. With its widely spread network and connectivity, Electrical power network can be utilized as a communication medium. Communicating high frequency control signals over a power line is well known by everyone and getting popular day by day. The aim of this project to propose low cost tool equipment in a home or small business based on the low cost hardware for controlling and monitoring the energy consumption using power line communication technology. The technology improvements achieved from the power line communication to the recently evolved cognitive radio networks. The proposed tool allows them to identify the highest demands of energy consumption in a home or small business with consumption reduction goal. Power line communication is a communication technology that enables sending and receiving data over already existing power cables. During the last year’s power line technology have been widely developed due to new modulation technologies. Power line communication is a preferred choice over wireless communication or other home networking technologies due to the ease of installation, inexpensive, high speed communication medium, availability of AC cables, low cost, high reliability and security. PLC system model was analyzed by PROTEUS software and coding is done in KEIL UVISION.
