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)

An AMR study in an Indian utility

S. G. Kerk 2005 International Power Engineering Conference, 2005

The automatic metering system (AMR) study was done as part of a 3-part study for Bombay Suburban Electricity Supply (BSES), now known as reliance energy (Rel Energy), which includes network optimization (NO) and distribution automation (DA) study. The AMR study was done over a 4-month period in a 2-stage process. The first stage was done through detail reviews of design ...


Sweden — Reaching 100% ‘smart meters’ July 1, 2009

A. Mannikoff; H. Nilsson 2009 IEEE Power & Energy Society General Meeting, 2009

In 2005 Sweden decided that data from electricity meters must be collected at least once a month from all customers no later than July 1, 2009. Since then, more than 5 million Automated Meter Reading (AMR) units have been installed in Sweden. In 2006, the European Union Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) came into force. As a result, the Swedish regulation ...


Realization of Automatic Meter Reading System Based on ZigBee with Improved Routing Protocol

Guilin Zheng; Yichuan Gao; Lijuan Wang 2010 Asia-Pacific Power and Energy Engineering Conference, 2010

ZigBee wireless networks have been extensively researched on recently. For the purpose of making ZigBee walk out of laboratory and becoming more practical in automatic meter reading (AMR) system, we make some favorable improvements both on the hardware and the software of ZigBee technology. In hardware aspect, we amplify transmit power and enhance receiver sensitivity in order to establish point-to-point ...


Telecommunications assessment for a Consumer Portal

M. McGranaghan; G. Gilchrist 2006 IEEE Power Engineering Society General Meeting, 2006

A Consumer Portal provides a communications gateway between energy providers and consumers for energy service functions. The functions enabled by the consumer portal helps the utilities reduce costs through more efficient operation, secure revenue from additional services and defer costs to accommodate load growth. Examples of Portal applications include AMR, demand response, real time pricing, theft detection, remote disconnect, energy ...


A pipelined automatic meter reading scheme

Y. Jin; M. D. Cox 1993 IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference, 1993

A communication scheme for radio-linked automatic meter reading (AMR) systems is presented. This scheme broadcasts a wake-up signal to all the meters that are to be read. It requires at most two frequency channels for both the wake- up signal and the returning data. The wake-up signal is sent only once for a specified group of meters and then the ...

  • 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.
