DG Power Indicator

DG backup is essential for us. DG power however is very expensive. More than that DG power is not clean. As a user, you would like to have freedom of knowing when the DG is running so that you can take actions to reduce the power consumption.

 It is possible to have a simple unit which can be installed at home to get the DG run indication. Most of the facilities which have a DG back up may have two possible back-up configuration.  I one configuration, there is different electrical distribution line bringing the DG electricity to each apartment. In the second configuration, there is no separate DG line coming to the flat and the DG power is connected with the grid power at the source. In the second scenario, most of the time a signal comes to the meter to provide dual supply metering at the meter.


It is possible to tap either of the above two lines to get a DG indicator working. Even more than that, one can also have a wireless DG indicator.  If you want such an indicator for your house or for your society, please write to us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

s I am Computer Guy but i do have a problem for you to apply your electrical mind... Let me try to explain. I live in a Flat in residential society, our society has 750 KVA big Diesel Generator and the power supply in my home comes 2 ways

1. Direct supply of Government Power Grid when electricity is there.
2. If electricity gone, the common society DG starts and we get power supply from DG.

the Meter to record the consumption for both is same and in my flat I have no way to know if the power that we are using is of DG or direct electricity...

I want to know the possible ways of implementing any mechanism, indicators etc in my Flat so if the DG supply is on, the indicator can light on and if DG is off and supply is from Government Power Grid.... light is of so I can see if DG is ON and can consume the DG units accordingly as DG supply units costs 3 times the normal government Grid supply.

Any idea of having any such mechanism in my House to differentiate between both kind of supply. ?
