PREA Meter School 2022

  • Intro to Self-Contained, Transformer-Rated and Meter Forms – This presentation gives an overview of functionality of self-contained and transformer-rated meter forms. It will discuss electro-mechanical vs. solid state meters, meter forms, and Blondel’s Theorem. This presentation was given at the PREA Meter School on March 8, 2022.
  • History of Electric Metering – This presentation takes an in-depth look at the history of electric metering starting with Ben Franklin’s Electric “battery” around the year 1670. The battle of the currents (AC vs. DC) is discussed, as well as the watt-hour meter, meter manufacturers, how metering has changed and what metering is today. We hope you enjoy this! This presentation was given at the PREA Meter School on March 8, 2022.
  • AMI Technology Overview – This presentation will go over the benefits of AMI and where we are starting from, the overview of technologies involved with AMI, how AMI is changing Meter Service Departments and metering jobs, and the future of metering and AMI. This presentation was given at the PREA Meter School on March 8, 2022.
  • ANSI C12.1 Overview and Current Events – This presentation is an overview of the ANSI C12 Standards that pertain to electric metering. This presentation was given at the PREA Meter School on March 8, 2022.
  • Site Verification for Self-Contained Hot Socket Detection – This presentation covers differences between self-contained and instrument or transformer rated sites; transformer rated meter forms; test switches and CTs; Blondel’s Theorem; meter accuracy testing; checking the health of your CTs and PTs; and site verification (and not just meter testing). This presentation was given at the PREA Meter School on March 8, 2022.
