The Grid Net Advanced Metering Application is deployed on the Grid Net Platform. Because the Grid Net Platform uses point-to-point cellular networks, every Grid Net-enabled device with the AMI Application adds immediate value the moment it is installed.
The Grid Net AMI Application provides a scalable means to report data from Grid Net-enabled smart meters, including:
- Time of Use (TOU) or Demand register data for monthly or quarterly billing
- Load Profile interval data for retail market settlement, load control sub-metering, load shaping, distribution capacity analysis, power quality analysis and control, and network planning and design operations
- Power Quality data instantaneous Voltage, power factor, low potential, leading kVArh, Voltage sag/swell, and more
Additionally, remote service switch connect/disconnect is accomplished via secure policy controls. Dual-authorization can be required to deploy disconnect policies, given the potential for harm if misused.
In addition to traditional metering, Grid Net-enabled smart meters are advanced distribution network grid sensors that provide Distribution Monitoring & Control functionality in the form of real-time quality of service, service reliability, and service safety information, as well as instantaneous consumption data used for Demand Response Load Control activities.
Grid Net is looking for utilities and partners who share our vision of tomorrow.
