The greatest resources found for mankind is electricity. Electricity is a basic utility for everyone around the globe regardless of location and usage. The utilization of electricity is crucial in industries which so lie depends on electricity when come to production. But in practical power failure is a very common scenario in buildings. The power interruption from the service provider is a minimal scenario comparing to the faulty power failures in Malaysia. In most cases this is due to the ELCB (earth leakage circuit breaker) or RCD (residual-current device) which is an automatically operated electrical switch are used to disconnect electricity supply when there is a fault within the electrical path. It is a written standard in Malaysia to install a circuit breaker which is designed to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by overload, short circuit and earth high impedance shock. However, the eIectric trip cannot be noticed unless the circuit breaker is detected at tripped position. In a large area such as industries, public facilities, remotely operated stations and not to be notified when there is a power failure. I n assisting such scenario using wireless technology the Power Outage Alert System via SMS (POAS) is designed to alert the user on the event of power faiIure is detected. The medium used to alert the user is via short messaging system (SMS). The POAS distribution board is an intelligent real-time system which is not only capable of alerting the users on a typical power failure, but going a step advance by alerting the user on the specific fault of their distribution board. The POAS is able to identify the type of power failure and the faulty component in a distribution board. The POAS helps many individual or private users in ensuring continues power supply to industries and any electrical based application which requires instant alert system for power failure to the users regardless of time and location in the shortest time possible. With the implementation of POAS, it will help many possible users to reduce any damages due to electricity failure to their electrical appliances.
