This article proposes the development of a disturbance detection system in the electrical network that operates in real time. The system is employed in RCS (remote communication stations), registering electrical disturbances for network monitoring. Notifications are delivered to the power distribution company autonomously, promoting integration of remote communication stations with the concept of Smart Grid. The developed system differs from others by using a method based on euclidean distance for the disturbances detection. Moreover, a web interface is offered for monitoring via Ethernet. Our system uses an Arduino platform for signal processing, sensors to obtain data and Ethernet and GSM network interfaces for communication. Using diverse communication technologies promotes redundancy in communication and notification to the power distribution company. The system was able to detect efficiently most of assessed voltage disturbances. It was also able to send monitoring events using the private network of the RCS and also employing SMS notification messages.
