Abstract

The Internet of Things (IOT) fills the gap between the real world and cyber world. This technology enables the world to achieve connectivity between objects by combining physical and digital world; through various objects such as; actuators, processors, sensors which communicate over the internet. It is one of the flourishing technologies in the world. A Distribution Static compensator (DSTATCOM) which is installed in a remote village of Warangal district is interfaced with IOT. In this paper we combine IOT with a DSTATCOM, to keep a check on the power factor and other transmission line parameters remotely. IOT technology is used to monitor the health conditions of the DSTATCOM, with the swift and apt notification feature using Gmail.
