It is seen that some innovations and regulations have been made in the Electricity Market Customer Service Regulation prepared and published by EPDK (Energy Market Regulatory Board).
Article 27 of the Regulation under the heading "Customers who will not be guaranteed" "Prepaim meter is established customer can not be requested assurance fee. The cash assurance fee of the customer who changed the old counter to the prepaim meter is updated and returned within the framework of the procedures specified in Article 26". In this case, it will be a need to sit down and work on serious, serious prepaim meters.
Even though it is a method that can be applied to a measure for distribution companies; there may be problems with pricing customers, especially if a reactive energy tariff can be applied.
As it is known, the ability to accrue the cost of reactive energy can only be done as a result of measurement. Therefore, it is not possible to use prepaim counters on these subscribers without the necessary arrangements.
From this day forward, we are working with more options on measuring and accruing electricity distribution; may be advantageous for distribution companies. The important thing is to examine in detail the necessary legal structure and application infrastructure before implementation; this application option is also to evaluate among alternatives.
Prepaim Counter Engine
Application software on prepaitable meter infrastructure, the way credit is installed on counters, warning structure in case of reduced customer credit, gradual pricing models according to the amount of consumption that may come up again in the future, if not today, and all the details of solutions on three-stroke tariff selection should be examined clearly and the applicability of prepapayment meter application should be investigated.
In this context, if credit loading on customer counters will be through smart cards; the design of these cards, the energy between the previous filling and the new filling during card filling, and, if necessary, the transfer of consumption information, including the load profile, to the distribution company information system should be carried out.
Data to be transferred from the smart card, such as average consumption, credit purchase date and amounts, should also be available.
The prepaim meter may be a good scenario, but perhaps it should be noted here; the most important area for companies should be system security,
To do this, if a smart card is to be used in the system;
Preventing cards from being copyable, preventing fraudulent credit uploads, and the applications of new card production are very important in case the cards are lost. Therefore, when loading credits on cards, it is inevitable that comparisons will be made by obtaining consumption information between the previous credit load and the new credit loading.
At least six counter brands, half of which are domestic, had to be readable, especially in a regulation issued earlier by the EPDK on remote readable counters, but there is no explanation yet for prepaid counters.
If the project is feasible, it may be a viable system for all but subscribers whose reactive energy measurement is mandatory, especially by regulation, but under any circumstances it is imperative that the counters of the customers in the relevant items be read remotely in the regulation "Procedures and principles for determining the scope and counter values of automatic meter reading systems" published in the Official Gazette no. 10.04.2011 and 27901.
Therefore, the above article should be taken into account when considering the entire system.
