Mississippi Electric Meter School – 2019

Four quadrant metering can be used to understand individually or collectively:

Real Power consumed by the end user
Apparent Power delivered by the utility
Real Power delivered to the utility by an end user’s generation source
Apparent Power generated by the end user’s generation source

Having these measurements allows for the calculation of Reactive Power, VA and VARS as well as providing kWh for billing purposes.
