Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR UTILIZING DISTRICT METERING AREAS BASED ON METER DESIGNATIONS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ D’UTILISATION DE ZONES DE COMPTAGE DE DISTRICT SUR LA BASE DE DÉSIGNATIONS DE COMPTEUR
Abstract
(EN) A computer implemented method implemented on a computer system includes non-transient memory storing instructions for configuring a plurality of district metering areas within a utility supply network. The method includes identifying a plurality of flow measurement devices, wherein each flow measurement device is connected by a directional connection to at least one other flow measurement device, generating a utility supply network representation based on the directional connections between the flow measurement devices, and generating a plurality of district metering areas for the utility supply network representation, each district metering area being a directed acyclic graph based on the directional connections and including a subset of the plurality of flow measuring devices and including at least one flow measurement device designated as a supply meter, at least one flow measurement device designated as a demand meter and at least one calculated flow measurement determined based on the flow measurements of the at least one supply meter and the at least one demand meter.
(FR) L’invention concerne un procédé mis en œuvre par ordinateur, mis en œuvre sur un système informatique, qui comprend une mémoire non transitoire stockant des instructions servant à configurer une pluralité de zones de comptage de district à l’intérieur d’un réseau de fourniture d’énergie. Le procédé comprend l’identification d’une pluralité de dispositifs de mesure de débit, chaque dispositif de mesure de débit étant relié par une liaison directionnelle à au moins un autre dispositif de mesure de débit, la génération d’une représentation de réseau de fourniture d’énergie d’après les liaisons directionnelles entre les dispositifs de mesure de débit, et la génération d’une pluralité de zones de comptage de district pour la représentation de réseau de fourniture d’énergie, chaque zone de comptage de district étant un graphe acyclique orienté basé sur des liaisons directionnelles et comprenant un sous-ensemble de la pluralité de dispositifs de mesure de débit et comprenant au moins un dispositif de mesure de débit désigné comme compteur de fourniture, au moins un dispositif de mesure de débit désigné comme compteur de demande et au moins une mesure de débit calculée déterminée d’après les mesures de débit du ou des compteurs de fourniture et du ou des compteurs de demande.
