In the recent years, electric utilities have been replacing their parks of electromechanical meters for electronic ones. Such meters are smarter and more accurate to generate billing data, besides enabling the execution of remote tasks and the use of loss prevention tools. With an increasing number of such equipment on the network, it becomes necessary to have advanced telemetering and monitoring systems that can manage a large amount of data in real time.
Given this scenario, there are natural concerns for the user. How will the system perform multiple simultaneous collections, with a limited network infrastructure? Being these collections made in a multi-vendors meters park, with different protocols. Furthermore, data integrity depends on manual procedures that always carry the possibility of human errors. It is clear that a Smart Metering system involves much more than simply getting data to generate monthly bills. Maintaining such a system can result in a high engineering cost.
Capable of performing over 200,000 simultaneous connections per server, Elipse Power AMI is the third generation software of Elipse for Meter Data Collection (MDC) systems. In fact, there are two specific advantages for the Elipse Power AMI when compared to other solutions on the market:
Elipse Power AMI comprises a robust architecture, formed by independent components:
