New generation of IP meters for transmission system operator RTE / Meter provides standardised power quality data / Establishment of a smart high-voltage network / Meter production “Made in Europe”
EMH metering GmbH & Co. KG has won a contract with the French transmission grid operator RTE for a major smart grid project. The contract comprises the supply of high-precision electricity meters with IP-based communication for the coming three years. With the new high-tech meters, RTE is converting its transmission network into a smart grid. The objective is to better integrate renewable energies without fluctuations in network quality. The conversion will start in 2019 and will take place in three stages. The project will also use meters that comply with the IEC 61000-4-30 Class A quality seal for measuring network status data. RTE will thus receive standardised, reliable and legally compliant data in order to determine voltage quality. Another technical requirement for the meters was the implementation of the international data standard COSEM.

First standardised control system for the smart meter rollout
EMH metering GmbH has successfully tested a standardised control system for the smart meter rollout along with the companies Robotron and Prolan. The control system enables utilities to switch off EEG (German Renewable Energy Act) systems or to perform disconnects according to §14a with the help of an intelligent measurement system. For the test, a control box from Prolan AG was connected to the CASA smart meter gateway from EMH metering and controlled by a CLS (controllable local systems) management system from Robotron Datenbank-Software GmbH...

EMH metering integrates RLM customers in the rollout
EMH metering GmbH & Co. KG is presenting an electricity meter for registered load profile measurement (RLM), which can be integrated in the infrastructure of intelligent measurement systems (iMsys). For the first time ever, the solution supports a legally compliant rollout for RLM measuring systems. Meter operators can in this way create a single, high-security and BSI-certified system for household and industrial customers. EMH metering GmbH is one of the German market leaders for modern energy meters. From 6 to 8 February 2018, the company will for the first time also present value-added modules for the smart meter gateway (SMGW) at E-World. These can give energy utilities decisive competitive advantages in their rollouts of smart metering systems...

Position paper to the study by the University of Twente on the measurement accuracy of smart meters
twente
At the beginning of March 2017, the University of Twente (Netherlands) published the results of a study in which the measuring accuracy of various electronic electricity meters used in the Netherlands were tested. For the study, modern energy-saving lamps (LED and CFL) were dimmed with a dimmer switch for the measurements, in the process generating high current peaks or non-sinusoidal currents. Some of the tested smart meters delivered extremely inaccurate readings. In many cases, the power measured was higher than the actual value – but in individual cases the value was also too low. The erroneous measurements of the tested meters were due to harmonics in the current caused by so-called phase angle controls. In particular, the power consumptions measured by meters with Hall sensors or Rogowski sensors in some cases deviated greatly from the real power consumption.
