Monitoring of diesel generators is an important part of the management program of electricity utilities as well as telecommunication companies’ in-order to have their cellular towers and base transmitter stations up all the time. A reliable remote monitoring method over the on-site method is always desirable so that managing of time and resources can take place as efficiently as possible. This paper looks into solving the issue of on-site monitoring and control of diesel generators through online monitoring to have actual observation of basic parameters of a running diesel generator using readily available resources which are also cheap to setup and maintain. The work is investigated using the platform of Internet of Things (IoT) which is a very versatile technology in regards to the digital age in terms of interacting with environment and things. This paper looks into exploring the monitoring and control of generator using the power of IoT paradigm.
