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)

Impact assessment of automated meter reading systems on diary cows

A. Maitra; D. Dorr Conference Record of the 2004 IEEE Industry Applications Conference, 2004. 39th IAS Annual Meeting., 2004

This work presents the findings concerning the possible effects of power line carrier based automated meter reading (AMR) systems throughout an electric power distribution system with respect to transient stray voltages at animal contact areas. The findings suggest that power line carrier based AMR technologies do not create a transient voltage with enough amplitude to increase the level of concern ...

  • 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.
