- The first company to have large-scale application of technologies and systems like "CPU smart-card Charge and Control", "One DCU Reading Multi-meter", LoRa-based RF Communication and "District Metering Area (DMA)”

- AMI is a complete power network processing system for measuring, collecting, storing, analyzing and using user's electricity information. It consists of a smart meter installed at the customer's end, a measurement data management system located in the power company, and a communication system connecting them.


- The smart meter in the AMI can record the user's various power usage information according to a preset time interval (minutes, hours, etc.), and transmit the information to the data center through the communication network, and according to different requirements and purposes, such as user billing, fault response, and demand side management are processed and analyzed; information can also be sent to the meter, such as requiring more data or online software upgrades to the meter.


- AMI provides customers with complete measurement solutions, from metering, terminal, communication to data acquisition, processing, analysis and control, comprehensive metering and interconnection complete solutions.


- The overall goal is to provide a complete end-to-end solution to support the application requirements of the AMI project. The system was designed to support large-scale home metering systems covering applications such as MV/LV distribution, industrial and commercial areas, industrial parks, village or villa areas, buildings and single buildings.


- The system can assist power companies in processing of meter data collection, power supply changes, tariff switching, meter management, and power supply, as well as a set of solutions to integrate different types of energy metering equipment such as water, gas, and heat.


- The solution consists of metering equipment layer (electric meter, intelligent terminal), communication layer (NAN &WAN), Data center Application layer (HES, MDMS, CIS/Billing…), Service layer (Customer center, Portal, Filed work order….).

2. HES

Advanced Smart Vending Solutions AMI Energy Solution Willfar - AMI 2


- Automate your customer processes data collection, change of tariff, blocking of customer installations etc to the greatest possible extent, bill related to actual consumption, and use short billing intervals.


- Implement various tariff models (several registers for active energy supplied/imported, time and/or load-dependent switchover) and acquire data on supplied/imported reactive energy. This ensures the greatest possible flexibility with regard to product design for an energy supplier. Optionally ripple control functionality can be introduced by using an independent load-switching device with integrated clock timer and two-way communication (changing of switching programs, spontaneous switching operations).


- Record the capacity utilization of individual line sections and transformers in order to optimize maintenance intervals, minimize line losses (e.g., by moving breaking points), and obtain additional data for planning expansion of the power network.


- Minimize down times by acquiring and diagnosing errors.


- Integrate small, decentralized energy generation plants into the distribution network for billing and automation purposes.


- Record and document the customer supply at the point of supply (in the meter) for the purpose of providing evidence and for planning the power network.


- Acquisition of all consumption data for electrical energy for tariff customers and special contract customers;


- Remote disconnection of customer connections (prepayment services, limitation of the maximum power consumption)


- Load-switching possibility for tariff and special contract customers.


- Recording and documentation of the quality of supply (meter: voltage tolerances, short-term failures, long-term failures; Power Quality according to EN 50160 through data concentrators in the transformer stations)


- Creation of an open communications platform for the integration of meters for other energy carriers/media (gas, district heating, water) and additional services (Home Automation) can be integrated.


- Recording of unauthorized power tapping and manipulations on the terminal devices (such as meters) Tele-control acquisition of the transformer stations and the distribution network infrastructure
