How is watt-hour meter billed?

  • Zhejiang Tianpusheng Electric Co., Ltd. is one of the largest manufacturers of electric energy meters in Taizhou City, Zhejiang Province, China. One of the products we promote is kilo watt-hour meter. Here is a brief introduction to the watt-hour meter.

    An watt-hour meter is a measuring device that can evaluate and record the electrical energy passing through a circuit within a certain period of time. By implementing electric energy meters, we can know how much electric energy consumers, houses, electric equipment or enterprises consume. The power company installs these meters at the consumer's place to evaluate the electricity bill for billing purposes. Read in every billing cycle. Usually, the billing unit is kilowatt-hour (kWh). This is equal to the total electricity consumption of one kilowatt user in one hour, which is also equal to 3.6 million joules. Electric energy meters are often called electric energy meters or electricity meters.

    The watt-hour meter is mainly composed of a micro motor and a counter. The motor will work by shunting the precise ratio of the current flowing in the circuit to be measured.

    The running or rotating speed of the motor is proportional to the amount of current flowing through the circuit. Therefore, each revolution of the motor rotor is similar to a given amount of current in the circuit. A counter is connected to the rotor to increase and display the use of electrical energy from the total number of rotations of the rotor.

    The main function of the electronic energy meter is power consumption measurement, and its main function is to display energy usage on the LED or LCD display. In some advanced meters, the readings can be transmitted to remote areas. It can also record power consumption during peak and off-peak hours. In addition, the meter can record power supply and load parameters, such as voltage, reactive power used, instantaneous utilization demand, power factor, maximum demand, etc.

    With the comprehensive advantages of price, quality and technology, the company's products can be seen everywhere. If you are interested in purchasing our products, please click on the link to contact us: three phase electricity meter manufacturer.
