Meter reading & data analysis
Distribution utilities install electronic meters for all high voltage (HV) consumers and feeders for loss measurement and for monitoring ‘supply hours’. These intelligent meters have the capability to log a lot of useful data related to supply, consumption, demand, tamper and load profile. When accompanied by electronic /automatic reading of these meters and analysis of the data that is vital for accurate commercial billing and for revenue protection, they can help protect the revenue of the utility.
Similarly, distribution feeders could benefit from services that include monitoring of feeder losses, daily and monthly consumption, single and three phase block supply hours, interruption counts and supply conditions. This could include a report about stopped or defective meters. All of it allowing the utility to bill consumers for the energy they have really used.
