INTRODUCTION

  • The Power Sector in India sustains a loss of over 25-30% because of pilferage of electricity.
  • The weakest links in the distribution of power are:
    • Easy accessibility of meters to consumers, because of which a large no. of whom tamper with it.
    • Human element involved in Reading of the meters
  • Note:-According to the CEA, during the financial year 2008-09, the Indian utilities could supply 689 billion kWh of electricity against requirement of 774 billion kWh, which represents shortfall of about 11.0%.

AUTOMATION AS A SOLUTION:

  • A solution to this ever growing problem would be:
    • Device a mechanism for for remote surveillance / monitoring of meters.
    • Automation of the meter readings.
  • East DISCOM in MP took initiative in this direction.
  • The AMR Project initiated by the Discom has made a breakthrough in the automation of Power utilities.

BACKGROUND

  • Previous Practiceof Meter reading and billing:
  • Manual Reading.
  • Billing through punching of manually recorded reading data at billing centers.
  • Decentralized database.

slide6

DRAWBACKS IN PREVIOUS

PRACTICE

  • Waste of highly skilled manpower .
  • Expenses on conveyance.
  • Likelihood of errors and manipulations.
  • Time lag between reading and billing.
  • Delay in detection and rectification of defects in the metering system.

6

installation of intelligent electronic meters
Installation of Intelligent Electronic Meters
  • The DISCOM took an initiative and provided modern static energy meters in respect of all its HT and LT high value consumers.
  • These meters can store several kilobytes of metering data that can be used for billing and diagnostic purposes.
  • This data can be downloaded to a handheld device called Meter Reading Instrument through the optical port ,which can be further uploaded to a PC for analysis.
  • The process of billing through MRI downloads was introduced in Sep’06

slide9

Initiation of AMR Project by the Discom

  • During billing Consumers through MRI downloads,
  • it was observed that substantial amount of time & manpower was engaged in monthly meter reading of the consumers.
  • In view of the above, it was decided by the company in Oct’06 that meter readings be managed remotely.
  • This would save cost on valuable man power involved in meter reading activity.

STAGE-3

Installation of Electronic Meters with data storage feature in respect of all HT and LT high value consumers

Billing through MRI downloads

Remote Reading of Meters and Billing

mode of communication
Mode of Communication
  • GSM was chosen as the mode for communication.
  • The GSM is the most popular standard for mobile phones in the world to cater voice services and data delivery.  
  • GSM network operates in two different frequency ranges in India - 900 MHz/ 1800 MHz.
  • The max baud rate for data transfer over GSM is 9600 bps.

11

deployment of modems
DEPLOYMENT OF MODEMS
  • Consumer End: GSM Modem (Transparent) with data enabled SIM.
  • Server End: GSM Modem( Store and forward) with data enabled SIM.
  • Communication Channel: GSM Network.

Meter connectivity (Optical port /RJ11)

13

slide16
System Configurations - Event based Dialing(For initiation of call from Modem in case of occurrence of events)

informations received from meter
INFORMATIONS RECEIVED FROM METER
  • Instant parameters.
  • Load & demand data.
  • Energy values
  • Tamper records.
  • Transactions

18

what is a meter tamper
What is a Meter Tamper?
  • It is an intentional change in Electrical parameters such that it gives an advantage to the customer by registering less energy than actually consumed.

19

tamper detection logging
Tamper detection & Logging
  • The meter analyses the electrical parameters and their relationships to make a judgement whether this is a situation which may happen due to normal load conditions or is artificially caused.

20

commonly logged events
Commonly Logged Events
  • Missing Potential.
  • CT reversal.
  • CT short or open.
  • Current unbalance.
  • Magnetic Tampers.
  • Power off.
  • Neutral Disturbance.

a case study
A CASE STUDY
  • Name of Consumer: M/s SECL,Arjuna Township,Kotma.

Distt. Anuppur.

  • Meter No. : MPE56593
  • Event Observed: : CT Open.
  • Date of occurrence: 10.03.09.
  • Date of attending of Metering: 06.04.09.
  • Observation at site: CT of ME found open.
  • Confirmation with event observed: Yes
  • Reading at the time of occurrence: 1655600
  • Reading at the time of restoration: 1835200
  • Assessed units not recorded by meter: 40157
  • Recovery raised: Rs. 2.01 lac
  • Amt Recovered: Rs. 2.01 lac.
out reach of the project in terms of geographical coverage
OUT REACH OF THE PROJECT(IN TERMS OF GEOGRAPHICAL COVERAGE)
  • The Project covers complete Company area which is 1,35,162 sq kms (45% of the area of MP).
  • It covers 4 commissionaries namely Jabalpur, Rewa, Sagar & Shahdol with 20 districts.

overall impact of the project
OVERALL IMPACT OF THE PROJECT

PROTECTION OF REVENUE :

Protection of over 60% of Company’s revenue. (Rs.1524 Cr. during the FY 08-09).

Reduction in billing cycle from 10-12 days to 1-2 days.

(B) REDUCTION IN EXPENSES :

Prior to AMR : Rs 7,00,000/ per month on meter

reading

After AMR : Rs 26,000/- per month.

(C) CLOSE SURVEILLANCE/VIGILANCE:

Large No. cases of malpractice/theft

detected:

HT 102 cases Rs. 567 Lac Recovered.

LT 140 cases Rs. 68 Lac Recovered.

Majority of these cases would have escaped unnoticed .

Consumers using very advanced technology for theft also brought to book.
