Side effects of smart meter
The present system of energy metering as well as billing in India
uses electromechanical and somewhere digital energy meter.
It consumes more time and labour.
One of the prime reasons is the traditional billing system which
Many times slow, costly, and lack in flexibility as well as
Today accuracy in electricity billing is highly recommended.
The smart energy meter gives real power consumption as well as
It provides real time monitoring of electricity uses
It is less time consuming and cost effective.

A Framework For Smart Metering
Fig:-4 Framework for smart metering
Smart meter measuring the electricity and remotely control the supply and cut off
when necessary it was called automated meter reading(AMR).AMR is a one way
communication and upgrade into two way communication “AMI” technology.
“AMR” is older technology only collects data from electrical meter to the utility.
but “AMI” is collects the data meter and consumer both.

Smart Metering Process
Various technology and Design for Smart Metering Process
Common process are in Practice for data collection
Smart meter gathers data locally & transfer via a local area network to a colletion point
Data collected at utility is used for a number of business purpose such as billing,
Service monitoring ,planning.

Stakeholder Type of Benefit
Accurate, timely view of consumption Capture
suspicious usage, faults Better network maintenance
Consumer Directly view electricity usage
Monitor appliance use and consumption leading to
awareness and better electricity usage planning
Customized rate plans
Retailer Understand and profile customers for targeted
service for better loyalty .
Cut down peak usage
Load control feature offer
TWO -WAY INTERACTION SYSTEM
Fig:8-Two way interaction system
Smart meter is based on new technology to achieve future prospective
demand of electricity.
It is based on principal of two way communication by which we can achieve
rising demand of electricity.
Smart meter will be part of a much wider internet of things in the future
integrating multiple aspects of human needs service to satisfy all such needs.
