Automatic meter reading

View this topic in
Automatic meter reading, or AMR, is the technology of automatically collecting consumption, diagnostic, and status data from water meter or energy metering devices (gas, electric) and transferring that data to a central database for billing, troubleshooting, and analyzing. This technology mainly saves utility providers the expense of periodic trips to each physical location to read a meter. (Wikipedia.org)

Ieee approved draft standard for local and metropolitan area networks part 15.4: low rate wireless personal area networks (lr-wpans) amendment: physical layer (phy) specifications for low data rate wireless smart metering utility networks

802.15.4g/D7, November 2011, 2012

This amendment to IEEE Std 802.15.4-2006 addresses principally outdoor low data rate, wireless, smart metering utility network requirements. It defines alternate PHYs and only those MAC modifications needed to support their implementation.


Integrated outage information filter for the distribution system using intelligent method

Yan Liu; N. N. Schulz Power Engineering Society Summer Meeting, 2000. IEEE, 2000

The main data source for lower distribution outages has been customer trouble calls. Developments in automated meter reading (AMR) systems and increased distribution SCADA are providing more metering information about the distribution system below the feeder breaker. However due to the complexity of the distribution system, no single data source can provide consistently accurate outage information. This paper discusses an ...


How to maximize the benefits of AMR enterprise-wide

I. Steklac; H. Tram Rural Electric Power Conference, 2005, 2005

Automatic meter reading (AMR) is much more than replacing meter readers and getting customer bills out more accurately. It is a pivotal information source that used effectively can drive enterprise efficiencies within transmission and distribution (T&D;) operations, asset management, customer service, and energy efficiency.


Automatic Remote Reading of Residential Meters

A. Brothman; R. Reiser; N. Kahn; F. Rittenhouse; R. Wells IEEE Transactions on Communication Technology, 1965

This paper reports on a test of the Transitel Automatic Meter Reading System which was conducted at Owosso, Michigan, over a sixteen-month trial period. This test confirmed that the Automatic Meter Reading System for the reading of residential utility meters is technically feasible and thoroughly compatible with associated telephone company equipment and facilities. This conclusion was drawn from the following ...


IEEE Draft Standard for Utility Industry Metering Communication Protocol Application Layer (End Device Data Tables)

IEEE P1377/D8, October 2010, 2010

This standard provides common structures for encoding data in communication between End Devices (meters, home appliances, IEEE 1703 Nodes) and Utility enterprise collection and control systems using binary codes and XML content.

  • Distribution

    The distribution system must partition large amounts of power into relatively small amounts for many different consumers. Techniques to increase efficiency, protect the public from power faults, and self-heal require challenging and unique approaches. While the general rule of local sensing and control applies to the distribution system, communication through the distribution system has a long history, using techniques such as distribution line carrier for applications like automatic meter reading, protection, and many other distribution system applications introduced here. As more communication and control are incorporated into the power grid, the closer the grid can come to its operating limits. However, this can make the system more brittle; brittle system analysis is introduced as a means of studying this phenomena and its impact on the communication system.
