Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) smart grid system is determining the needs of all the vital aspects e.g. daily workflow, workforce management, asset management, call center philosophy, billing systematic etc. AMR system could cover variety of installation techniques meeting customer requirements. The concepts presented include installation of standalone automated metering system which only enable monitoring of load on transformers, automated reading with full controlling features using SCADA system where as metering management system operating separately. Moreover, it also includes automated meter reading with limited controlling and enhanced function of SCADA system. More advanced features of an integrated AMR, enhanced distribution management system with full controlling, monitoring and Geographic Information System (GIS) are also addressed. AMR smart grid system provides fundamental benefits including efficient power system control and monitoring, Timely operational decisions to minimize outages and losses and acquiring meter readings of several energy interchange points and many 11 KV incoming and outgoing feeders.
