This paper is on the Design of a Computerised Automatic Three Phase Data Logger with Computer Interface for Power Stations. Currently, power stations in Most developing nations collect data like voltage, current and frequency measurements manually from their different measuring instruments leading to loss of man-hour, exposure of the operators to risks for instruments located in hazardous areas, and possible introduction of errors to the readings obtained from the instruments. The automatic three phase data logger proposed in this work comes as a solution to these challenges faced by Most developing nations’ power stations. The work involves the design and construction of a system capable of measuring voltage, current, and frequency. A computer graphical user interface was designed for the system for easier man machine interaction. The hardware part of the system is made up of five major components namely: Power supply, Sensor, Display, Control, and a Work Station. This three Phase data logger basically reads in the voltage, current and frequency of a three phase supply as analog signals; processes them, and display these data on the liquid crystal display and computer screen (mimicked by the virtual terminal of the Proteus ISIS environment. The displayed data on the computer screen is be stored into the computer hard-disk with the help of a freeware software known as “Coolterm” through a wired serial connection. It logs data every second, being a prototype model.
