Discipline: Engineering, Technology



The study aimed to develop a power limiter with load of not less than 96 KVA for residential houses. The device would allow the consumers to be aware of their power consumption ahead of time, thus, they can already estimate their monthly electrical bills and be able to prepare their payments.


The design can set the power limit and show readings for the consumed power. Its main operation interrupts specific load on the power panel when the preset power is already attained. It also enables the consumers to reset the power limit and bring back power supply on selected circuits when interruption occurs. It can, therefore, lessen consumers’ load and save money as well.


Developmental type of research was used in the study. Since it dealt with improving a substantially existing project, the study attempted to modify a device which would contribute to energy savings.
