Abstract [en]

This paper proposes a method to determine the optimal communication architecture in advance metering infrastructures (AMI). The method starts by indicating suitable groups of meters that share similar characteristics such as distance to the secondary substation and mutual proximity. Then it connects each group of meters to the AMI-Head End through a communication architecture formed by wireless and Power Line Communication (PLC) technologies. The optimality criterion takes into account the Capital Expenditures (CAPEX), Operational Expenditures (OPEX) and the Quality of Service (QoS) in the communication architecture. The method is tested on a LV network based on real utility data provided by EU FP7 DISCERN project partners. These tests show that the method is consistent with planning foresight and can be useful to assist in the AMI communication architecture designing process.
