Abstract – The last decade has seen a large-scale growth in the requirement of uninterrupted power supply for industries, residential and commercial complexes and educational institutions.

In this paper, the software and hardware details of a prototype PC based monitoring unit for a DG set is discussed. This unit was developed and implemented at the power station of the Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore. The system has three main functionalities: parameter monitoring, data logging and raising alarm when the DG set malfunctions. I
