Smart Meters and Advanced Metering Infrastructure

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Smart grid developments offer a new perspective within active distribution networks. Advanced metering infrastructure is a key component of the smart grid ecosystem, integrating software and hardware components, data management, monitoring systems, and smart meters. Smart meters already play a key role in the transition from traditional to smart grid and tough challenges are being presented to them. The unbundled smart meter is a specific architecture that simultaneously combines metrology features and high flexibility within smart meters. The unbundled smart meter is a meter systematization where smart meter functionalities are adequately grouped in two separate, unbundled, components: the smart metrology meter and the smart meter extension. This chapter explains the advantages of the unbundled smart meter concept and describes its main features, such as smart grid compatibility, communication, data security, local processing, data models, resiliency, and immunity.
