The importance of line switching cannot be overemphasized as they are used to connect and disconnect substations to and from a distribution grid. At the cradle of technology, line switching was achieved via the use of manual switches or fuses which could endanger life as a result of electrocution when expose during maintenance. This ill prompted the development of automated line switching using relays and contactors. With time, this tends to fail as a result of wearing of the contact which is as a result of arcing and low voltage. To avert all these ills, this paper presents Arduino based Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) line switching using Solid State Relay (SSR). This is to ensure the safety of operators or technologist and to also avert the problem associated with relays and contactors using SSR. This was achieved using RFID RC-522 reader, ardriuno Uno, SSR and other discrete components. The system was tested and worked perfectly reducing the risk of electrocution and eliminating damage (wearing of the contacts) common with contactors and relays.
