Abstract—An Internet of Things (IoT) based smart grid technology becomes more popular and gained significant attention in present days. Due to the rapid growth of information and technology, the IoT is increasingly used for industrial automation, smart monitoring and control. The work is focused on implementing IoT based smart sensor technology for improving the reliability and power quality of smart grid systems. Typically, the smart sensors are considered as the most essential IoT devices used for improving the reliability of smart grid systems. The proposed framework comprises the major elements of monitoring, communication and analysis components, in which the monitoring element comprises the current and voltage sensors that is directly connected with the consumer loads. Then, the communication component comprises the Arduino sensor and WiFi module, which helps to establish the wireless communication. Here, the analysis component is used as a remote application that is used to get the voltage profiles, energy reports, voltage and current. During analysis, the performance of the proposed framework is validated and tested by using different parameters like, voltage, current, power, apparent power, and energy.
