Abstract

Only one in five Bangladeshis has access to power. Probably, it is more discouraging in the rural areas of the Country. People living in the land are observing serious load shedding due to the generation deficit. The suffering of its citizen could lessen by a proper load management system. In this paper, the authors have designed and fabricated a circuit that can control (on/off) distribution line of a specific region based on the intensity of the daylight (LUX). If the light intensity varies with seasons or some other factors, it is adjustable. Again if there occurs any damage (short circuit) or if any bulb/tube does not work, it could point out the location and could provide alarm. The functioning of the circuit is empirically experienced in the 11-kV electric sub-station at CUET campus. It is observed that the circuit is working reliably, and it is possible to ameliorate the power management system enormously. The circuit is simple in design, easy to fabricate and require few dollars only.
