Smart Meter Systems

View this topic in
A smart meter is usually an electronic device that records consumption of electric energy in intervals of an hour or less and communicates that information at least daily back to the utility for monitoring and billing.[7] Smart meters enable two-way communication between the meter and the central system. Unlike home energy monitors, smart meters can gather data for remote reporting. Such an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) differs from traditional automatic meter reading (AMR) in that it enables two-way communications with the meter. (Wikipedia.org)

  • Challenges of smart meter systems

    The challenges in electrical distribution is that the supply of efficient power to the consumers through t the day. For this utilities have to cater a strong, perfect systems and equipment at all stages of transmission and distribution until the end user. One such initiatives is to get the information from all the users to control the electricity supply effectively. Also the system considered should be strong enough to cater the needs of the utility as well as consumers. In this path effort should be a lot more to initiate the system needs, utility constraints and consumer satisfaction at all times of the day. For this to achieve, utility has to put a lot of efforts in terms of technical and commercial aspects, without comprising. This paper presents the emerging information in the smart meter infrastructure paradigm. It provides representative examples, discusses existing challenges and advantages. And also to submit information about present consideration for the smart meter system support and the implementation initiatives. The current metering system treated as isolated and passive system compare to the modern information system of real time metering. Here we are presenting about the smart meter system usage, advantage and its challenges.

  • A server based load analysis of smart meter systems

    The electricity demand is increasing with the growth of population and with the use of different appliances in the households. So, there is a need for consumers to track their daily usage and understand the consumption patterns to save and control these resources. Smart meter along with Advanced Metering Infrastructure(AMI) is a pragmatic and efficient solution for this. Earlier procedure which put to profitable use of one-way communications to gather meter data, were mentioned to as Automated Meter Reading (AMR)Systems. This paper aims at analysing the performance of the proposed smart meter systems, efficient transmission and how utilities explore new developments for the benefit of consumers as well as themselves by remotely monitoring energy consumption. The methodology followed to analyze the outcome is Power Line Communication(PLC), which is an arrangement to pass on data on an electrical conductor used for transmitting electric power from high voltage transmission lines to lower voltage lines used inside the buildings. This is achieved by using PLC modems for remote monitoring and control of energy meters. By this way we can bring down human efforts needed to outline meter readings which are till now recorded by visiting every home individually. As a result, the consumption patterns at the utilities are studies and load analysis is made so that this can help in maintaining other systems associated with energy management. To study and analyze the load consumption patterns, simulations were carried out in MATLAB. By this way an estimate on the energy consumption can be made and thus have a control on its usage.

  • On Secure Multi-party Computation in Bandwidth-Limited Smart-Meter Systems

    The emergence of decentralized energy production pushes the deployment of smart-grid solutions. While the availability of fine-grained consumption data via smart-meter measurements provides several advantages for energy providers (e.g., grid automation, accurate forecasts), they also raise concerns about the privacy of the users. In this paper we present an efficient and privacy- aware communication protocol for future smart-grid solutions. The protocol is based on secure multi-party computation (SMC) and allows deducing the aggregated consumption data of a group of smart meters without disclosing the consumption data of individual smart meters. Moreover, by using a special initialization phase the communication effort is significantly reduced compared to classical SMC-based approaches. For aggregating the consumption data of 100 smart meters, our proposed protocol requires less than one second when assuming a communication bandwidth of 100, kbits/s.

  • Automated Verification of LV Network Topologies

    The increasing penetration of low carbon technologies and electric vehicles is expected to place a considerable burden to Low Voltage (LV) power distribution networks. The previously passive management of LV networks will no longer be sustainable to cope with this growth. A more proactive approach is required to manage LV networks, usually achieved by using Power System State Estimation (PSSE) tools. The effective use of PSSE tools however, requires accurate reporting of each LV network's topology and configuration of assets (cables) that compose it. This paper presents a method for ongoing accuracy improvement of the LV networks topologies, by automating the process of approximating missing cable information and validating the network architectures. The method proposed was derived based on the assumptions that a specific network infrastructure was selected to meet a certain distributed customer loading requirement. The results obtained agrees with the assumptions, providing also a mechanism that scores the confidence level for the choices made to approximate any missing asset information.

  • Smart meter systems for smart grid management

    Several applications require a distributed measurement system able to measure the same or different parameters at different points in a wide area. In recent years, a wide variety of solutions have been proposed for the remote measurement and data transmission. In this paper an architecture of a real- time energy management is presented. It provides several Smart Meters, that continuously monitor connected loads and communicate with a Smart Concentrator via CAN bus. The main task of SC is to temporarily store the data forwarded from a single Smart Meters, in order to make this information available for HTTP request/response. The paper illustrates the hardware architecture, discusses the adopted communication protocol solutions and is completed with an example of energy monitoring for a smart utility through a Web-based application.

  • Smart meter systems measurements for the verification of the detection & classification algorithms

    In this paper the Non-Intrusive Appliance Load Monitoring (NALM) will be described as a technique to improve the current smart meter systems. The development and verification of a measurement system is described. With that system it is possible to simulate and measure the energy consumption of appliances in residential buildings. These measurements are used to develop and verify the disaggregation algorithms for the event detection and the classification. A first event detection algorithm, based on the calculation of the difference values of the power signals is presented. A comparison with another algorithm is shown. The usefulness of that algorithm for the event detection is discussed at the end of the paper.

  • Smart meter systems detection & classification using artificial neural networks

    The goal of that paper is to show a possibility for the disaggregation of electrical appliances in the power profile of residential buildings. The advantage is that the measurement system is at a central point in the household. So the installation effort decrease. For the disaggregation of the appliances out of the load curve, an approach for the development of a system based on pattern recognition is presented. One method for the classification of appliances is to use Artificial Neural Network. This idea is the main part of that paper. It is shown a method, to classify one kind of appliances. At the end, the first results and a comparison with the famous approach, for the disaggregation of electrical appliances, from Hart is presented.

  • Privacy of smart meter systems with an alternative energy source

    Smart meter (SM) measurements provide near realtime information on the electricity consumption of a user to the utility provider (UP). This data can be used to extract private information on the energy consumption patterns of the user. Assuming that the user has access to an alternative energy source (AES) in addition to the power grid, SM privacy problem is studied from an information theoretic perspective. The energy requirement of the user (input load) at each time instant can be satisfied either from the power grid (output load) or from the AES. It is assumed that the output load can be perfectly tracked by the UP, and the privacy is measured through the information leakage rate. For given average and peak power constraints on the AES, privacy-power function is defined, and its equivalence to the rate-distortion function with a difference distortion measure is shown. Focusing on continuous input loads, the privacy-power function is characterized when there is only peak power limitation on the AES, while the Shannon lower bound is provided for the general case. The bound is shown to be achievable for the exponential input distribution.

  • Radio propagation loss study by hybrid simulation for smart meter communication in apartment building

    Recently, wireless smart meter systems for the life infrastructure such as electricity, gas and water attract much attention. Since radio propagation environments for the smart meter communication in apartment buildings are very complicated, it is difficult to analyze the propagation loss with ray tracing method. This paper proposed a hybrid simulation technique which combines ray tracing and FDTD methods. We first analyzed the radiation from a smart meter in the pipe shaft by FDTD method, and then calculated propagation loss between pipe shafts by ray tracing method. The results obtained by the hybrid technique are compared with those by the ray tracing only and the FDTD only. The hybrid method can extend analyzable area in the apartment building and is effective to obtain results close to FDTD method.

  • Analysis of Smart Meter Data for Electricity Consumers

    Smart meter systems are being deployed to improve grid reliability and promote energy efficiency while providing improved services to their customers. Smart metering which is installed in millions of households worldwide provides utility companies with real-time meaningful and timely data about electricity consumption and allow customers to make informed choices about energy usage. Smart meter data analytics has become an active area in research and industry. It aims to help utilities and consumers understand electricity consumption patterns. This paper provides analysis methods for load data including: analysis of daily load profiles and similarity between them, analysis of load density, and analysis of seasonal and irregular components in the load time series. We evaluate our approach by analyzing smart meter data collected from 1000 households in Poland at a 15-minute granularity over a period of one year.
