SMART METERoo Smart Meter is basically a Electrical Meters That records consumption of Electrical energy in interval of Hours or less and equipped with communication and information technology .o Communicates with utilty for monitoring and billing purpose.
NCSoo Enables two way communication between the Meters and central systemso Unlike home energy meters, Smart Meters can gather datas for remote reporting·

ARCHITECTURE SMART METERSAND COMMUNICATION ARCHITECTURE
OVRVIEW OF AMI Customer is equipped with advanced solid state, Electronic meters that collect time-based data.• Meters have the ability to transmit the collected data through commonly available fixed networks such as Broadband over Power Line (BPL), Power Line Communications (PLC), Fixed Radio Frequency (RF) networks, and public networks (e.g., landline, cellular, paging).• Meters data are received by the AMI host system and sent to the Meter Data Manage-ment System (MDMS)
AMI OVERVIWManages data storage and analysis to provide the information in useful form to the utility.AMI enables two-way communications, so communi-cation from the utility to the meter could also take placeAdvanced metering systems are comprised of state- of-the-art electronic/digital hardware and software, which combine interval data
AMI OVERVIWMeasurement with continuously available remote communicationsEnable measure-ment of detailed, time-based information and frequent collection and transmittal of such information to various parties.AMI or Advanced Metering Infrastructure typically refers to the full measurement and collection system that includes meters at the
AMI OVERVIWCustomer site, communication networks between the customer and a service provider, and data recep-tion and management systems that make the information available to the service provider.

SMART METER TO SMART GRIDSMART GRID IS CONECPT FOR USING POWER EFFCIENT.AMI SUPPORTS THE SMART GSMART GRID PROVIDES ADVANCE METERSmart grid is going to be transformational to the utilities as atm were to bankers, mobile devices to telecoms and ecommerce to retai.Like the web , a smart grid can be communication channel but strategic utilities will leverage its capabilities and intelligence to improve all facet of business•
BENIFTS TO CONSUMERS 1 ) End to estimated bills , which are majorsource of complaints by many customers 2) A tool to help consumers better mangae their use stating that smart meters with display outside their home could provide up to date information 3) Billing customers by time of day will encourage consumers to adjust their consumption habits 4) Need not wait for long que for payment
BENEFITS TO CONSUMERS5) Payment gateway operates 24*&6) No billing error as meters are remotely7) Get message for interruption ,outage alertfor low currency in the meter8) Consumer can purchase energy remotelyusing phone internet9) Flexeibilty to buy small amount of energy .10) Reconnection happenes remotely
BENIFTS TO UTILTIES Remote meter reading /saving in manpow. Pricing and demand response optionRemote connect/disconnect for load control· Theft detection/anti-tampering functions· Customer usage information· Prepayment (without card) enabling· Conservation voltage reduction
BENEFITS TO UTILITIESReduction of Green house gases·Cust omer service Quality level Monitoring· Value added services for energyMarket· Four years( apx)paybackon utility operating saving Identify heavy power customers to reduce peak-hour usage, thus avoiding the cost ofbuilding a new power plant.
BENEFITS TO UTILITIESEnsure compliance with local restrictions by alerting customers when they near usage caps.•Encourage voluntary cutbacks by communicating with customers about their usage.• Perform Targeted brownouts to avoid shutting down crucial operations and appliances.• Provide Web portals where customers can view power consumption over time and get early
BENEFITS TO UTILITIES Concerned regarding Cost, Health,security· Need to purchase New meters Might be additional burden to customers· Smart meters can deny the services or Charge premium to customers who exceed limits set by the company· Health concerns about smart meters arise from Radio frequency emitted by smart meters
OBSTRICLES Privacy concerns are realted to collection of datas about customers habits, consumption pattern,accesseibiloty of datas through utilities and possibly at the location of smart meters and apperehension for sharing of detailed information without the knowledge of customers· Most security concerns center on the hack-abilty of wireless technology ,
