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)

Development of Intelligent Management System (IMS) for Dwelling Houses

Lv Changfei; Wu Xiaoyu; Huo Xiaojing; Qian Dongping 2007 8th International Conference on Electronic Measurement and Instruments, 2007

This paper describes an integrated intelligent automatic inquiry and management community system for dwelling houses. The system is a host driven, multi-level network system consisting of AT89C51, HT9200A and MSM7512B, with built-in flexibility and expandability, for acquiring and transmitting data. The system can send two different kinds of information. The first kind of information comes from family gateways, including data ...


Vertical communication in multimedia multitier tactical networks

Q. Xue; A. Ganz IEEE Military Communications Conference, 2003. MILCOM 2003., 2003

In this paper, we propose a lightweight proactive routing protocol, called adaptive multitier routing (AMR), for vertical traffic in tactical networks. By adopting an asymmetric tree-like network topology, AMR minimizes the control overhead in the network as well as the computational complexity on intermediate nodes. Such tree topology provides both network connectivity and traffic distribution information. By routing via the ...


Model for polling in noisy multihop systems with application to PLC and AMR

Josep M. Selga; Agustin Zaballos; Jaume Abella; Guiomar Corral 2008 IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications, 2008

The present paper presents a Markov chain model of polling in noisy multi-hop systems typical of power line communications (PLC) as well as of other systems. The model includes the transmission of a backwards error indication packet (BEIP) to the master when the transmission is blocked in one of the downstream hops as well as the possibility to reduce the ...

This paper presents a development of mobile load monitoring and control system (MLMCS) in application to remote load management. MLMCS consists of client monitoring and control interface (CMCI) on mobile phone screen and wireless ARM-based automatic meter reading and control system (WAMRCS).

Electricity customers' attitudes to smart metering. Experiences from the Norwegian market

E. F. Livgard International Symposium on Power Electronics Power Electronics, Electrical Drives, Automation and Motion, 2012

Over the next 4-5 years all Norwegian electricity customers will follow the rest of Europe in implementing automatic meter reading. For the customers, this means new opportunities to monitor one's own power consumption, simpler invoices, access to new services, and it is no longer necessary to read and report the measurements to the grid operator. For the power industry this ...

  • 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.
