The efficiency of power systems is largely determined by the effectiveness of the inbuilt power equipment. Monitoring transmission parameters for faults and quick isolation of the system from faults helps to improve the efficiency of the power systems reliability. Current conventional method has its own limitations due to the reliance on technical team to carrying out visual inspection in order to identify any fault. Technologies such as Power line carrier communication and the use of internet based communication systems have their respective demerits. In this paper the scholars presents the study of the use of GSM technology, to provide a reliable monitoring and fault detection system. Appropriate designed specific sensors were used to monitor the changes in transmission parameters such as voltage, current, temperature and frequency. Whenever fault occurred the data acquired were transmitted to the utility mobile phone as SMS via the GSM wireless network. The system hardware was modeled using Proteus simulation tool while Mikro-C was used for the software. With this system, power transmission fault can be detected and isolated at the shortest possible time.
