Development of Zigbee Based Energy Management System

Srinidhi G A, K B ShivaKumar, Sagar K N, K A Krishnamurthy


The ZigBee pro was developed to provide low-power, wireless connectivity for a Wide range of network applications concerned with monitoring and control. ZigBee is a worldwide open standard controlled by the ZigBee Alliance. ZigBee PRO is an Enhancement of the original ZigBee protocol, providing a number of extra features that are particularly useful for very large networks (that may include hundreds or even thousands of nodes). The ZigBee standard builds on the established IEEE 802.15.4 standard for packet based wireless transport. ZigBee enhances the functionality of IEEE 802.15.4 by providing flexible, extendable network topologies with integrated set-up and routing intelligence to facilitate easy installation and high resilience to failure [1]. ZigBee networks also incorporate listen-before-talk and rigorous security measures that enable them to co-exist with other wireless technologies (such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi) in the same operating environment. ZigBee's wireless connectivity means that it can be installed easily and cheaply, and its built-in intelligence and flexibility allow networks to be easily adapted to changing needs by adding, removing or moving network nodes. The protocol is designed such that nodes can appear in and disappear from the network, allowing some devices to be put into a power-saving mode when not active. This means that many devices in a ZigBee network can be battery-powered, making them self-contained and, again, reducing installation costs.
