Electrical Meter?


2.) Timeline of the History of Electric Meters:

Here is a short list of important events in the history by the Edison Tech Center.

1800 The electric age begins with Volta's battery which sparks many inventors and scientists around the world to start to experiment with electricity. There are no standards of measurement or meters to measure this force. No one yet understands what electricity is and therefore it takes another 90 years before more scientific explanations help to break down electricity into its elements which then are assigned standards by the IEC in Chicago and Paris in the 1880s-1890s.

1866 Transatlantic telegraph was completed. Basic galvanometer-type meters were used to set up telegraph systems.

1879 Thomas Edison desperately needs a way to measure the electricity his customers would use. He developed a chemical meter with two rods of copper in a solution, as power was used one of the electrodes...

Energy bills

The measurements taken from the readings of electricity meters are used to calculate the amount of energy supplied to your home and will appear on the energy bill sent to you by your supplier(s).

Accuracy of meters is something that takes seriously as it ensures that consumers pay for the amount of energy they actually use and facilitate fair trade and competition. However, is only responsible for electricity and gas metering accuracy and complaints about billing should firstly be directed to the supplier concerned. The Citizens Advice consumer service can assist you with this and provide independent advice on energy supply. If your supplier is unable to resolve your dispute then the Energy Ombudsman can investigate.

Although meter accuracy is fundamental to the energy billing process, there are many factors, unrelated to the accuracy of the meter that may significantly change the amount you are required to pay when you receive a bill from your...

In modern days, the types of electric meter continuously operate to measure the instantaneous voltage and current and calculating the product of these to give out the instantaneous electrical power. The electric power is then integrated against time to give energy used. There are basically two kinds of electric meter categories, the electromechanical and solid state meters.

Electromechanical Technology: The most common electric meter type is the Thomson electric meter which falls under the electromechanical category. This was invented by Elihu Thomson in 1888. The working pf this electromechanical induction electric meter is very simple to understand. These kinds of electric meter are operated by counting the number of revolutions of an aluminum disc which keeps on rotating at a speed proportional to the power supplied. The number of revolutions is thus proportional to the energy usage. It consumes a small amount of power, typically around two watts. There is a disc made...

Replace your incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL). CFL’s use one-fourth the energy of ordinary light bulbs, have a longer rated life and are available in a variety of wattages to suit every lighting requirement in the home. CFL’s used throughout the home cut kilowatt hours and are a major factor in slowing the electric meter down.

Turn off the power to the home entertainment center when it is not being used. Televisions, VCRs, DVD players, surround sound equipment and other electronic appliances use power even when they are turned off. Surge protective, multi-receptacle power strips provide an on-off switch that effectively cuts the electrical supply to the equipment plugged into it while guarding against spikes or temporary current fluctuations in the household circuitry making this a small, yet significant way to save energy costs.

Replace an old electric stove. The most energy-efficient stoves have induction elements which...

Automotive-style miniature relay, dust cover is taken off

A relay is an electrically operated switch. Many relays use an electromagnet to mechanically operate a switch, but other operating principles are also used, such as solid-state relays. Relays are used where it is necessary to control a circuit by a separate low-power signal, or where several circuits must be controlled by one signal. The first relays were used in long distance telegraph circuits as amplifiers: they repeated the signal coming in from one circuit and re-transmitted it on another circuit. Relays were used extensively in telephone exchanges and early computers to perform logical operations.

A type of relay that can handle the high power required to directly control an electric motor or other loads is called a contactor. Solid-state relays control power circuits with no moving parts, instead using a semiconductor device to perform switching. Relays with calibrated operating characteristics and...
