Smart meters are coming down in price, capable to generate large amounts of information. Information generated by smart meters is useful to a utility if they are saved in a data collection system in a specific format. To render the data useful, the data from a smart meter, other important information has to be tagged to the data. Equally importance is the time element. The following items described what is meant by network parameters and time reference of a data point. a. Substation name and bus number b. Feeder number, phase serving the smart meter c. Circuit geography information d. Time synchronization of interval reading and duration Novel billing methods, demand response, distribution control, etc. and numerous applications and control algorithms can be derived from the metering data base management system. These also impose stringent requirements on the Advanced Metering Infrastructure from a data throughput stand-point, infrastructure control and system recovery.
