Conference: Metering, Billing, CRM/CIS America 2006
Location: Atlanta, Georgia
Presenter: Oscar Dominguez
Abstract: This presentation provides an overview of the smart metering technology that EDESUR deployed in their initial test pilot and how they are using this technology to detect and recover non-technical losses. In short, smart meters with two-way communications are essential for utilities who want to actively locate and eliminate points of revenue loss. This technology enables utilities to do on-request meter reads, load profile analysis, measure reverse energy flow, detect low voltage points, and monitor alarms. By monitoring alarms and load profile registers utilitiescan detect irregularitiesand take timely corrective action.
