    This standard provides common structures for encoding data in communication between End Devices (meters, home appliances, IEEE 1703 Nodes) and Utility enterprise collection and control systems using binary codes and XML content. The standard addresses the AMI and SmartGrid requirements as identified by the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability of the U.S. Department of Energy; the Smart Metering Initiative of the Ontario Ministry of Energy (Canada) and of Measurement Canada. The standard exposes sets of tables that are grouped together into sections that pertain to a particular feature-set and related function such as Time-of-use, Load Profile, Security, Power Quality and more. Each standard Table Set (Data Model) can be expanded or restricted by the Manufacturer of the IEEE 1377 Device or home appliance using XML/TDL descriptive registered syntax (XML-based Table Definition Language) and enterprise data-value management using EDL (Exchange Data Language) in a manner that is machine readable. Published jointly with NEMA and Measurement Canada, this standard provides Tables in support of Gas, Water and Electric sensors and related appliances. It also provides Tables for network configuration and management by referencing its companion standard IEEE 1703. IEEE 1377 is co-published as ANSI C12.19 and MC12.19.

  • COMAR finding on radiofrequency safety and utility smart meters

    This Technical Information Statement describes Smart Meter technology as used with modern electric power metering systems and focuses on the radio frequency (RF) emissions associatedwith their operation relative to human RF exposure limits. Smart Meters typically employ lowpower (~1 W or less) transmitters that wirelessly send electric energy usage data to the utilitycompany several times per day in the form of brief, pulsed emissions in the unlicensed frequencybands of 902-928 MHz and 2.4-2.48 GHz or on other nearby frequencies. Most Smart Metersoperate as wireless mesh networks where each Smart Meter can communicate with otherneighboring meters to relay data to a data collection point in the region. This communicationprocess includes RF emissions from Smart Meters representing energy usage as well as therelaying of data from other meters and emissions associated with maintaining the meter'shierarchy within the wireless network. As a consequence, most Smart Meters emit RF pulsesthroughout the day, more at certain times and less at others. However, the duty cycle associatedwith all of these emissions is very small, typically less than 1%, and most of the time far lessthan 1%, meaning that most Smart Meters actually transmit RF fields for only a few minutes perday at most. The low peak power of Smart Meters and the very low duty cycles lead to the factthat accessible RF fields near Smart Meters are far below both U.S. and international RF safe-tylimits whether judged on the basis of instantaneous peak power densities or time-averaged exposures. This conclusion holds for Smart Meters alone or installed in large banks of meters.

  • Research on Remote Meter Automatic Reading Based on Computer Vision

In the meter automatic reading, the computer vision discrimination, incorporate human's ability of visual and apprehensive models. Not only the digital display power meter can be read, but also the direct-reading instrument can be fetched. In this paper, the scheme of remote automatic reading is introduced, the local meter reading information of distributed substation can be transmitted to center using computer network and then the pretreatment, segmentation and pattern matching, are detailed description in the meter image recognition process. Via energy meter automatic recognition experiment, the results based computer vision is accurate enough to monitor the remote substation running parameters

  • Giving neurons to sensors. QoS management in wireless sensors networks.

    Public utilities services (gas, water and electricity) have been traditionally automated with several technologies. The main functions that these technologies must support are AMR, automated meter reading, and SCADA, supervisory control and data acquisition. Most meter manufacturers provide devices with Bluetoothreg or ZigBeetrade communication features. This characteristic has allowed the inclusion of wireless sensor networks (WSN) in these systems. Once WSNs have appeared in such a scenario, real-time AMR and SCADA applications can be developed with low cost. Data must be routed from every meter to a base station. This paper describes the use of a novel QoS- driven routing algorithm, named SIR: sensor intelligence routing, over a network of meters. An artificial neural network is introduced in every node to manage the routes that data have to follow. The resulting system is named intelligent wireless sensor network (IWSN).

    This paper discusses the requirements imposed on the design of a power system automatic meter reading system expected to serve a large (>1 million) customer base spread over a large geographical area. Issues such as system throughput, response time, and multi-application expandability are addressed, all of which are intimately dependent on the underlying communication system infrastructure, the local geography, the customer base, and the regulatory environment. A methodology for analysis, assessment, and design of large systems is presented. For illustration, two communication systems-a low power RF/PLC system and a power frequency carrier system-are analysed and discussed.<<ETX>>

  • A Synergistic Approach to Using AMR and Intelligent Electronic Devices to Determine Outages in a Distribution Network

    Recent developments in digital electronics and communication technology have made it possible to automate remote meter reading at the electric utility distribution network. Every point at the distribution network can be monitored and controlled and two-way AMR systems are growing. Electric utilities are seeking added value applications to justify buying an AMR system. Outage mapping is one application that is popular and high in demand. In this paper, a possible method is proposed how the outage mapping function can be implemented once an AMR system is installed. Outage mapping is greatly simplified for communication technologies, which use the medium voltage distribution circuit for the physical communication infrastructure. In particular, technologies that use low frequency signals (200 Hz-650 Hz), which are superimposed on the 60 Hz waveform, have additional advantages, which further simplify the outage detection and mapping. Intelligent devices can be used at the distribution substation to monitor and capture any unusual event at the distribution network. By using an appropriate algorithm to process the captured information, a trigger activates a polling sequence of remote devices (meter reading transponders) located at only the part of the network where a fault occurs. The polling result quickly identifies which protective device has operated which can be related to the circuit and area map
