Abstract: This paper presents the design and implementation of RF based wireless remote control generator system that can be interfaced with automatic changeover. We noticed that generator system is designed to be powered ON by pressing a button or turning a key or drawing the rope tiled on its body. The generators are kept on the back corridor or outside of the house due to the noise they generate. The owners usually walk a distance where they are kept to switch ON or switch OFF the generator system. This has been a stressful process to the generator owners whenever the service of the generator is needed. This work is designed to bridge the gap (or distance) between the generator and the owner. The owner can remotely switch ON or switch OFF the generator kept at hundred (100) meter distance around his or her building which operates with a radio frequency of 435MHz.The remote controlled generator involves a transmitter unit which sends a wireless signal through an antenna and this signal is received by the reception unit. This signal is further processed by the controller unit and the processed signal is sent to relay which acts as a switch to trigger the generator ON or OFF. This work is tested with accuracy and finally interfaced with the automatic changeover.
