The Technology Behind Dual Fuel Smart Meters
The smart meters usually comprise of real time sensor technology that evokes responses in them. They are called smart meters because at any point in time, if there is a power outage or deteriorating quality of electricity or gas that is being supplied to the property, these meters are able to detect the change and relay the information to the service providers for them to get it logged and in response a solution be designed and implemented to do away with the issue.
There is another provision in the smart meters which is referred to as Automated Meter Reading. This is the technology which assists in the automatic consumption, diagnostic and status data to be automatically collected and transferred to a centralized database for billing purposes. This is the data regarding the consumption of gas, electricity and water. This is the feature that allows the smart meters to take and store the meter readings at designated regular intervals. This eliminates the need for manual reading of the non-smart meters. Also all this information sought by the smart meters are used in different kinds of analysis by the utility companies. This technology for these smart meters is based on radio frequency as well as power line transmission, whichever convenient.
The resources used in the advance metering infrastructure include software, hardware, energy display and controllers, systems associated with customers, communication systems, Meter Data Management Software, network distribution business systems, Meter Data Management Softwares etc. This technology is based on the amalgamation of all these systems to create a unique domain design where at the prompt of a button the information regarding the customer till that day is made available accurately. The smart meters are the end result of this technology collaboration.
