Abstract-Due to the economic growth, the demand for electricity tends to increase every year and that can lead to global warming and climate change. The resources in the world are limited while the society has unlimited demands, so energy conservation, including effective energy consumption should be of great concern, and people should concentrate on it. Real Time Power Consumption Monitoring Using Arduino is using an Arduino platform as a microcontroller to read the voltage and current from sensors and then wirelessly send the measured data to monitor the results using a new Android application. An Android application used for monitoring the energy usage of small electrical devices. The users can visualize, control, and make plans for the energy consumption in each device or group of devices via the Internet. For the design, the Database System that consists of OLTP (Online Transaction Processing) for operational data transactions and OLAP (Online Analytical Processing) are used for historical data supports flexible and adaptable data and historical-data-repository reports.

I. INTRODUCTION

Due to the economic growth, the demand for electricity tends to increase every year and that can lead to global warming and climate change. The resources in the world are limited while society has unlimited demands, so the ways of energy conservation, including effective energy consumption should be of great concern. For these reasons, our project, Real Time Power Consumption Monitoring Using Arduino, is intended to continue developing an application for monitoring electrical usage of each appliance. This developing application allows users to keep track of real-time and/or historical energy consumption in the form of the graphical views via an Android-operating system smart device.
