Nowadays Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming more popular and embedded in our day to day life because of its smartness and increased connectivity. IoT Trends can be easily integrated into energy management which will make the life of people more comfortable and easier. One of the most immense methods of generating electricity without emission or noise is through PV solar electricity by converting abundant sunlight to electrical energy. Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems require low maintenance and no pollution discharge. However, the intermittency and variability nature of renewable energy sources may result into power system instability if intelligent interface is not provided. A power electronics inverter system should have a digital design, robust software facilities and a two-way communications ability in order to make the system intelligent. Hence Eco-friendly IoT based smart controlled inverter, is proposed in the paper to increase human comfort with Wi-Fi technology to engage in a two way communication with the user. The user can control the connected load as well as monitor the load current & status of the connected devices through Mobile Application or Web URL. In which the user can connect / disconnect the devices based on the requirement choice. The load current is measured by current sensor and the acquired data is transferred to the Web URL through Wi-Fi module. The remote node can control the connected loads again via the same Wi-Fi module through internet. This work uses the ESP8266 Node MCU Wi-Fi module and ACS 712 Hall effect current sensor to monitor and control the loads anywhere within the Wi-Fi limit.
