Application Problems in Prepatious Electricity Meters are increasing in the day! To examine the effects of the use of prepaim electricity meters on the Electricity Distribution Companies; this application has positive and negative effects for distribution companies.
1.1. In traditional applications, after the customer starts using electricity or after an average of thirty days of consumption after any billing period, an invoice is delivered to the customer by reading the meter and adding a payment period of no less than 10 days.
In this case, after the use of energy, at best, 30-40 after the collection is realized.
In the use of a prepaim electricity meter; at least 30 days before the customer started using the energy, the collection will be prepaim.
1.2 There will be no debit/debit process as there is no customer who does not pay the debt in the use of prepaim counters. In this case, electricity distribution will be able to provide an employment advantage for the company.
Negative Effects on Prepaim Electricity Meters With Application Problems
2.1 Tahakkuka Connection of Consumption;
2.1.1. As it is known, customers who use an electronic electrical meter may; they can use the right to calculate energy consumption at different prices according to their time zones using a multi-time tariff.
In the case of the use of prepaim counters, it is possible to use different tariffs according to consumption times; electric energy is more expensive during peak hours when the customer's heavy consumption will mean that the customer's credit will end sooner.
This situation may be a problem on the customer's side.
2.1.2. The most problematic group of customers is the pricing of the consumption of customers using a prepaim electricity meter; three-phase subscribers whose reactive energy is required to be measured and have the connection power determined by the regulation.
In the event of a temporary failure of any of the equipment such as relays, .b or codanc in the compensation facilities of these customers; inductive or capacitive reagent ratios should be priced in accordance with the current tariff by rising above the rates specified in the regulation.
But with perhaps a two-day overs of these rates on prepaim counters; calculations cannot be done correctly because the invoice period overout cannot be distinguished.
The closest solution to the mind here would be to collect the reactive costs of the previous period with reactive accrual, if any, by using the consumption information for the previous period during the next card filling. This system is also not as efficient as the application.
2.1.3 Changing the counters,
All existing electromethanic and electronic meters will need to be replaced in the area where a prepaim meter system is being considered. This operation brings an employment burden for the distribution company, while an extra cost for consumers who will cover counter costs.
2.1.4 Measurement of Consumptions;
Although distribution companies have prepaimed the price of electricity that the customer will use before the sale, real-time measurement of the sale of electrical energy, a significant part of a distribution company's liability, is not possible with the prepaim system.
A distribution company measures the amount of energy received from Teiaş, Otoproductor companies or cogeneration companies on a month-by-month basis in order to deliver to the consumption of its customers.
Therefore, in order to fully determine the loss/leakage rates in the area of responsibility, they must also measure the consumption of their customers on a monthly basis;
In cases where the previous and next credit loading time is more than one month, the distribution company will not be able to determine the loss/leakage rates during the month in real time because the distribution company cannot measure customer consumption at the appropriate time. This issue will not be preferred for companies.
