Case Study 6: AMI Design
MeterSYS assisted a coastal community in determining the ability to design and implement an AMI network that utilized existing City owned assets, minimized aesthetic impacts to the picturesque community, and provided additional functionality of distribution leak detection and remote disconnect. MeterSYS evaluated the designs of 5 leading AMI vendors and presented to the City the best solution for network performance given the unique characteristics of the community.
Through our partnerships with market-leading smart meter manufacturers, design options are evaluated through analysis of the unique natural and physical assets of a utility service area. MeterSYS has broad experiences in evaluating the variances of each unique design approach and determines a “best fit” solution considering differences in system performance, costs, and technical functionalities investments in smart metering technology by utilities. We have technology, utility operations, and experience metering technicians to support any smart metering design needs.
