: Batteries are the heart of the UPS system, and its applications are more in all the fields, where the electrical supply requires. The periodical monitoring/observations are required for battery source to provide continuous power to the load without any interruption. Mainly, when the batteries are connected in the form of online/no-break UPS system, the critical monitoring is essential for providing quality power to increase the performance of the load. The existing/conventional system is configured to monitor the line voltage and load current of the battery bank; with this the individual cell/battery performance and their status cannot be monitored. This proposed PLC based battery health monitoring system eliminates the above discussed problems. This system monitors the individual battery’s electrical parameters through SCADA. This system is incorporated with GSM module and room temperature measurements. GSM module is for giving alert message to authorized person whenever the condition of the battery is under critical and the room temperature increases than the set value.
