Compact metering solutions for harsh environments
Billing and quality measurement are crucial issues for the smart grid, and medium-voltage (MV) metering unit are integral to making the grid smarter. Thanks to screened insulation technology and instrument transformers optimized for digital meters, it is now possible to propose very compact metering solutions. This paper describes how more compact meters enhance the MV tariff metering system. Specifically, it presents the benefits of compact and pre-engineered metering units.
