The paper describes the smart meter module for microgrid. In order to monitor and manage the micro-grid system, design of monitoring system and control capability, which contains hardware device. Hence real time implementation is adopted in software and hardware model. MPLAB and its program modules in software constitute with hardware device. It describes the probable methods of implementation for smart metering microgrid sources and load feeders. Smart meter measures real time parameters of a

Real power and reactive power is determined using measured voltages and currents and communicated using smart meters supported by GPRS. It also results in higher order harmonic which is not desirable to the loads. The microgrid smart metering system that is monitoring and control system have been implemented and experimentally validated in a real size microgrid which operate continuously. OBJECTIVE The objective to develop a smart metering module is to monitor all electric parameters of the generators and load lines of a microgrid. With addition, to provide the control system of these sources and load lines from main grid. To provide backup mechanism for data security in case of loss of both wireless and carrier based communication by means of memory storage (SD card). And later on retrieve this data. To develop algorithm in this smart meter to determine the harmonics and distortion and report to load dispatch centre of the main grid. To develop control strategy for auto-decision taking capability of these smart meters in case of abnormal conditions of either generators or loads. To generate the simulations for balanced and imbalance grid voltage and current with respect to harmonic and higher order harmonic.
