Smart Grid Meters is a hot topic today, and IHS is your source for Smart Grid standards.
IHS has created a new NEMA Smart Meters Package. This new collection provides the requirements and guidance on electricity metering, watt hour meter sockets, device data tables, meter interfacing to data communication networks and type 2 optical ports. NEMA Smart Meter Package also establishes performance criteria for thermal demand meters, mechanical demand registers and phase shifting devices used in metering. Test methods for transformer-rated meters and self contained 'A' base watt hour meter are included in this package as well as a watt hour safety standard. It includes the entire ANSI C12 series of standards plus the NEMA SG-AMI 1 : Requirements for Smart Meter Upgradeability.
