Title: METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR CONTROLLING DATA FLOW IN ELECTRICITY METER
Abstract:
The present invention, in one embodiment, is a method for controlling data flow in an electronic electric meter (100). The method includes steps of measuring current (104) and voltage (106) of a power source (102); determining a set of internal quantities (202) using the measured current and voltage; using the set of internal quantities (202) in conjunction with a set of functions to determine measurement profile quantities (204); and storing the determined measurement profile quantities (204) in registers within the meter.
