i have to used the arduino as an intelligence circuit to automatically transfer switch of 2 circuit breakers which for utility grid and generator set.

if the brown-out will occur in the utility grid, arduino will responsible to transfer the electrical source from utility grid circuit breaker, to generator-set circuit breaker and also the arduino will automatically engage the engine start of the generator set, without power interruption and without human interface.

but somehow i have a problem of the components what will be used as voltage sensor to give the signal to arduino switching process and engage the automatically work it out wither the voltage is absence or not…

Thank you so much… inform me please if you have any ideas for this…

#Question
How will you achieve Uninterrupted switching without UPS? Circuit will detect Main Supply Cut and then activates Generator… takes time… how will u make it uninterrupted? Surge proof Circuitry are required…
Regarding Sensing the Voltage/Current (Temperature might also be required… for safety…) ADC’s r inbuilt in Microcontrollers… may be some Analog electrical interfaces needed for #Robust Design.

your going to use two processors here. simply use one to disconnect from utility to generator when voltage input seizes and another for the generator once the first one switches to the generator. thats what i think. once you’ve programmed the processors on the timing i dont see why you’ll need a ups.

@Lawal Bayode only after sensing the main supply cut… the generator set is triggred… what will happen in transition time… how will u make it uninterupped? even a fraction of a second delay will disrupt everything… #question
