Energy conservation is an important aspect in today’s scenario. Many systems have been developed in order to capitalize the energy con-sumption and conserve the energy, so that the control over energy consumption can be greatly achieved. There are various costs associated with the mismanagement of energy in commercial buildings. Even with renewable energy sources for electricity, prices rarely decrease. The increasing availabil-ity and affordability of wireless building and home automation networks has increased interest in residential and commercial building energy manage-ment. This interest has been coupled with an increased awareness of the environmental impact of energy generation and usage. Although building-level automation has been around for more than 40 years, there is renewed interest in automation for residential and commercial sites, especially around smart buildings and a smart grid. Power line communication (PLC) is today a viable technology for both low speed and high speed networking. Hence, the aim of the project is implementing building automation system using Power Line Communication. This report describes the introduction to LonWorks networks and power line communication and power line communication protocols and comparison among different power line modules, the need and importance of power line communication testing followed by simple network development for monitoring and controlling the energy usage in Building Energy Management System.
