What are Electricity Distribution Measurement Systems?
Healthy measurement in an electrical distribution system is the basis of the work. The measurement of the electricity to be distributed starts at the point of purchase and ends at the electricity meter in the user's facility.
In a distribution system, measurement systems ke[i]ep track of the amount of electricity offered to consumption by accurately measuring if there is no normally established, intervention-free and defective situation. If the measurement systems are not sealed, it is possible to prevent the correct consumption record by interfering with the measurement system, and in some cases, even if the measurement system is under seal and does not allow intervention, time and time may be incorrect measurements due to any technical failure in the measurement transformers.
As you can see, the meter does not always make sense in the measurement of electrical energy alone, and the fact that the meter or measurement system is sealed does not mean that the measurement was done correctly.
Electricity Trade Volume
This measurement system, which is the most important indicator of the volume of electricity trade, should show the necessary importance of distribution companies. Otherwise, there may be incorrect measurements with no interference with the measurement system and when everything seems normal, such incorrect measurements will have a result against distribution companies in general.
In order not to challenge such negativity and possible damage, it is necessary to check the time, time measurement systems, and use the meter adjustment test table effectively.
In particular, planning control of measurement systems and storing audit results by preparing appropriate forms to record audit results will shed light on the company's work for future periods of distribution company.
Perhaps during these audits, boards that are not in accordance with the rules and have been accepted in the past periods will be seen; Tracking the time given for fixing these glitches or conversion rates of the measurement transformers in the facility and the rates in the information system of the distribution company may vary, if any, it is very important that these situations are updated and no more intervention-free systems are left.
The importance of measurements is not only important in the customer counter as a sales, but also at the buying points. Otherwise, loss/leakage assessments will never be realistic.
Measurements Must Be Done Correctly
After the measurements are done correctly, the rest of the measurement values are moved to the distribution company's system; There are alternative systems in this regard, we tried to explain an evaluation of these systems in our article titled "Comparison table in counter reading system".
It is not possible to manage any action that cannot be briefly metered, and to expect benefits from the results of an action that cannot be managed. Therefore, it is impossible to achieve success without mastering the measurement systems that are the starting point of the job.
