Abstract: Presented by Alfonso Lugo Duarte at Metering, Billing/CRM Latin America 2006.


To describe the implementation of energy meters at the low voltage side on distribution transformers as a strategy for revenue protection.

The first issue that utilities have to deal with, after having made strong investments in revenue protection measures, is to define strategies who allow them to control and maintain suitable levels of energy losses, assuring return on investment ( Kwh per dollar invested).
This article presents how Macrometering (to install meters at the low voltage side on distribution transformers) allows Utilities to develop an infrastructure to localize, detect and control energy losses assuring rentability
