Electricity consumption metering systems Polymetrica
Energy metering and monitoring systems are devices that measure the amount of electrical energy consumed by a specific object over a specific amount of time.
Depending on the specific situation, there may be many reasons for tracking and analyzing energy consumption:
- accounting of operating costs;
- measuring the performance of the object;
- ensuring customer requirements;
- leasing obligations;
- increasing work efficiency;
ensuring the continuity of production;
- the need to comply with reporting, etc.
Whichever of these reasons arises for you, accurate, relevant and useful information about energy use can open the door to a whole host of energy saving benefits and improvements.
What tasks do power consumption controllers solve?
Allocation of energy costs.
In conventional homes, energy costs are often allocated according to a formula based on the area occupied by each tenant relative to the total floor area of the building.
Many tenants find this type of cost allocation imprecise and unfair and only ask to be billed for actual use.
Distributed metering systems for electricity consumption will help to solve this problem by giving each tenant the right to pay only for the kilowatts used by him.
Energy use analysis.
For businesses, electricity is often the main operating cost. To maximize financial and competitive advantage, users must move beyond the traditional approach of simply replacing inefficient hardware.
Polymetrica energy metering systems provide users with the means to maximize energy efficiency and minimize operating costs.
Building a comparative analysis of energy efficiency.
This analysis allows users to compare the energy performance of one building or facility in an office building with others or with statistics on the real estate market in general.
Benchmarking can help identify the key drivers of inefficiency and identify the right places for targeted improvement projects that will increase business profitability.
Account audit (shadow accounting).
Mistakes in utility bills are surprisingly common. Since most supply contracts allow the utility to recover missed payments only months or years after the error occurred, lack of accounting can become a major financial problem.
It is therefore in the business’s best interest to audit all utility bills received and obtain the information necessary to substantiate any claim for reimbursement.
For these purposes, a secondary meter is used, commonly called a shadow meter, which can be connected in parallel with the utility meter.
Where the devices for metering electricity consumption can be used
Such systems can be installed almost anywhere, where electrical equipment is used. As you can see from the previous paragraph, consumption accounting can be useful both for large enterprises wishing to control their expenses more accurately and for ordinary tenants who seek to pay only for the actual use of resources, and not for the entire house as a whole.
How the remote power control system works
The principle of operation of each specific device depends on its type. However, the general idea is that a meter is installed near each object of interest (building, floor, office, specific equipment). It keeps records of energy consumption in real time, transmitting all received data to a common server, from where this information from his PC can be obtained by anyone with access.
