Consumers are more and more aware of the necessity to save energy in their home and
to get a consumer cost effective monthly bill. In the next step they are adopting not
only being consumers but also producers of energy, which would require an additional
infrastructure. Conventional manual metering approaches face some critical challenges
brought by the surge in power consumption and the expanding business scope of power
companies. Such as:
Forward
•
Cannot acquire and analyze real-time power consumption which is necessary for
effective line loss analysis.
•
Low efficiency and errors and low accuracy are inevitable in manual meter reading.
•
Cannot achieve pre-payment at multiple rates, remote control, or anti-power-stealing
etc.
The key is to deploy Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) in the power grids. AMI's upfront benefit is its ability to facilitate a favorable interaction between power companies
and customers. To illustrate, it allows power companies to keep precise tabs on power
consumption and lets consumers take actions to optimize their power use.

Solution Introduction
As a leading global ICT solutions provider, Huawei has brought
its ICT extensive experience in the electric power industry into
the AMI solution that helps power companies leverage such
functions as smart metering, line loss analysis, and devicebased customer interaction. Such a solution promises better
user experience, power quality, and operating efficiency while
reducing consumption, carbon emission, and operating costs.
Huawei provides AMI solution consisting of a master station
– DCP (Data Collection Platform), WAN (Wide Area Network),
and NAN (Neighborhood Area Network).
DCP: The DCP contains a head-end system and a meter
data management system (MDMS). The head-end system
interacts with devices, manages communications protocols,
adapts internet protocols, and collects and stores metering
data. Thus, the Head-end system is also named Meter data
collection system(MDCS). The MDMS focuses on business
applications. It manages data analysis, monitors the operating
status of systems, compiles statistics, analyzes reports, and
manages operations and maintenance. Open interfaces will
enable the MDMS to connect with ISV systems, i.e. billing
systems (Billing), Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition
(SCADA), and Energy Management System (EMS). As an
integrated platform, Huawei DCP is adaptive to the united
network management platform to provide one-stop network
and business management services.
WAN: The WAN refers to the transmission network that links
the data concentrator unit (DCU) with the DCP. The WAN
supports various access modes, like GPRS/3G, Ethernet,
and medium-voltage PLC (power line carrier). Thus, specific
networks are utilized for different areas with particular
conditions. Huawei fulfills the diversified customer needs
with its professional wireless/fixed-line network solutions that
conform to power industry standards.
NAN: The NAN contains meters, DCUs, and communication
networks. NAN acquires and stores data of residential
consumer and commercial & industrial business customers
and transmits it to DCP systems for application level use.
•
The communication between Meters and DCUs in NAN
are different based on application scenarios, such as
RS485, PLC, ZigBee, Sub-GHz or GPRS/3G directly.
•
Meters can integrate Huawei PLC chip, Sub-GHz chip or
GPRS/3G chip.
•
Based on Huawei AR routing platform, provide "All-inOne-Box" features including wireless and wired interface,
firewall, routing, switching and VPN etc.

Customer value
Saving labor and operational costs
Speeding up electricity charge
AMI enables automatic data
acquisition, reducing labor
cost and operational costs
since power companies do
not longer need to send staff
to read meters. AMI also
prevents unwanted economic
losses that are caused by manual data errors during manual
meter reading.
With its pre-payment and
flexible charging way, the
Huawei AMI solution allows
power companies to get the
electricity bills filled as soon as
possible.
Reducing losses by restraining power theft
Managing the health of the grid based on
line loss analysis
Smart meters and the DCP
work jointly to detect, analyze,
and identify attempts or
actions to steal power. As a
result, the AMI solution helps
restrain power theft and
reduces losses caused by it.
The DCP analyzes line losses by
time or area. This gives electric
company an overview of the
line losses over the entire
supply area and helps them to
optimize the whole grid.
