Basic Power System Metering

4 Professional Development Hours

After Participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Define Electric Power
  • Compare AC and DC Power
  • Analyze Real, Reactive and Apparent Power related to Capacitive and Inductive Loads
  • Distinguish between Power and Energy
  • Compare the Old and the New Energy Meters
  • Analyse single and Three Phase Power and Energy Measurement
  • Recognize and Identify Instrument Transformers
  • Work with Measurement Canada Standards for Electrical Metering

Description:
This course introduces the fundamentals of metering, such as terminology and basic principles of meters. It will provide an understanding of power calculations for single and 3 phase power metering, including vector mathematics, instrument transformers, three-phase wiring methods.

Meter instruments, meter diagrams and standards, and the inter-workings of traditional metering mechanisms are introduced. Various samples of single phase 3 wire, 3 phase 3 wire, 3 phase 4 wire are examined. The parts of the various electromechanical and solid state meters are discussed.
