Energy Metering

An electricity meter or energy meter is a device that measures the amount of electric energy consumed by a residence, business or an electrically powered device.

Electricity meters are typically calibrated in billing units, the most common one being the kilowatt hour [kWh]. Periodic readings of electric meters establishes billing cycles and energy used during a cycle.

In settings when energy savings during certain periods are desired, meters may measure demand, the maximum use of power in some interval. “Time of day” metering allows electric rates to be changed during a day, to record usage during peak high-cost periods and off-peak, lower-cost, periods. Also, in some areas meters have relays for demand response shedding of loads during peak load periods.

Electricity meters operate by continuously measuring the instantaneous voltage (volts) and current amperes to give energy used (in joules, kilowatt-hours etc.). Meters for smaller services (such as small residential customers) can be connected directly in-line between source and customer. For larger loads, more than about 200 ampere of load, current transformers are used, so that the meter can be located other than in line with the service conductors. The meters fall into two basic categories, electromechanical and electronic.

What we can do to help

ICS are able to supply and install energy meters to a new build or retro fit to an existing installation, giving the client the opportunity to monitor and reduce their energy consumption.

The energy meter can also be connected to the building management system to provide excellent monitoring ability.
