Importance of Advanced Metering Infrastructure for Utilities
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) enables a real-time communications link between the utilities and consumers and is regarded as the backbone of Smart Grid. Upgrading the old metering infrastructure can empower utilities with innovation that encompasses more than just metering to bring their infrastructure into the future. Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is an essential component of the Smart Grid ecosystem. This consists of monitoring systems, smart meters, integrating software, data management, and hardware components. AMI enables a real-time communications link between the utilities and consumers and is regarded as the backbone of Smart Grid.
AMI comprises different hardware and software components that help in measuring energy consumption and providing the key information about the usage of energy, gas, and water to utilities and customers. The primary objectives of AMI includes; remote interval meter reading for error free data, load profiling, network problem identification, partial load curtailment in place of load shedding, and energy auditing.
