Abstract : An energy meter at an electrical substation contains a detector which changes state each time a quantity of energy is consumed. This data is accumulated in a microprocessor system. Real time energy consumption data is fed back to a customer monitoring station and may be telemetered to a power company central billing station. Customer and power company have their demand periods synchronized by the microprocessor system. (Author)
