Title: Prepaid Smart Water Meter University of Khartoum
Author: Ahmed, Mohamed Hussein Khalil
Abstract: Water Efficiency is considered as a major aspect for every country in the world, many studies such as integrated water management were developed to enhance the way water resources are managed. Consequently, smart water systems were developed to reach equity for water usage, economic benefits for both the consumer and the utility, improve system management and achieve maximum water efficiency. In this project, a smart two-way communication water meter that operates in prepaid payment method was simulated using PROTEUS software on PC. The water meter communicates with the water utility company and transfer data containing the daily water usage of the user through GSM technology. The smart water meter also contains a LCD monitor that displays the remaining balance of cubic meter of water with the aid of a PIC18F4550 Microcontroller. Therefore, the user acknowledges the consumption of water, which is a major difference between the conventional mechanical water meter and the intelligent water meter. If fully Implemented, the smart water meter calculates the difference between the remaining balance of cubic meter of water and the input water, when the balance finishes, the valve closes the main pipe of water. The meter also sends data of consumption via SMS at known specific time intervals through the day to the utility and the utility also can monitor and the control the meter remotely.
