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)

Implementation of an ACE1 Decomposition Method

N. B. Hoonchareon; C. M. Ong; R. A. Kramer IEEE Power Engineering Review, 2002

Having established the feasibility and developed a method to decompose a control area's ACE1 into components attributable to load changes in subareas within the control area, this paper addresses some of the practical issues with an online implementation of the ACE1 model and the decomposition method. Issues examined here include time-varying system condition, nonlinearities in the governors' deadbands and AGC ...


ESTELLE: A Method to Automatically Analyze the Performance of Telecontrol Protocols in SCADA Systems

V. Medina; I. Gomez; J. Luque; S. Martin IEEE Power Engineering Review, 2002

This article presents the use of ESTELLE, a formal description technique, as a method to calculate automatically the performance of telecontrol protocols in SCADA systems. Some specific primitives are added to the ESTELLE description language in order to achieve that goal. As an example, we analyze the performance of a telecontrol protocol. The results from this method are compared to ...


A High Resolution Spectral Analysis Algorithm for Power System Disturbance Monitoring

P. O'Shea IEEE Power Engineering Review, 2002

In [1] a Fourier based algorithm was presented for monitoring the characteristics of the damped oscillating "modes" that are set up after a disturbance in an electric power distribution system. This earlier paper allowed for the analysis of multiple modes, but only if the modes were sufficiently well separated to be resolved with conventional Fourier techniques. This current paper extends ...

How to maximize the benefits of AMR enterprise-wide

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.


A Power Efficient Algorithm for Data Gathering from Wireless Water Meter Networks

Industrial Informatics, 2006 IEEE International Conference on, 2006

A traditional method to gather water consumption data from water meters in residential areas by using human recorders is costly and time consuming. Many AMR (automatic meter reading) methods have been proposed to assist data gathering. A wireless ad-hoc sensor network configuration could be an alternative to reduce the cost of AMR. Some existing sensor network protocols such as LEACH, ...

  • 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.
