MeterMate 3.00 Overview GE Electricity Metering School October 2~6, 2000
MM 3.00 Overview2 MeterMate 3.00 Structure MeterMate Profile Manager –Define up to 20 measures to be tracked by kV2 –272 measurements to choose from MeterMate Program Manager (MMPROG) –“MMWIN” equivalent for creating kV/kV2 programs, managing users & security codes MeterMate Meter Comm (MMDOS) –Used to Read & Program kV/kV2 meters, generate reports, etc.
MM 3.00 Overview3 MM 3.00 and MMLP 2.0 Database Update MM Profile Manager Setup MM Program Manager MM DOS kVkV2 MMLP
MM 3.00 Overview4 New Features (MMPROG) Support for the kV2 meter, including: –Partial Programming capability TOU Schedules & Calendars I/O & Alerts: function and pulse value Recorder parameters –Display Label editor –Totalization editor –Rate Selection editor Defines TOU Schedule & Calendar resources –User Groups editor
MM 3.00 Overview5 New Features (MMDOS) Support for the kV2 meter, including: –Partial Programming –Transformer Loss Compensation –Transformer Correction (for CT & VT errors) –Electronically “Seal” meters (kV/kV2) –Reconfigure Security Codes (kV/kV2) –New reports Voltage Event Monitor Harmonic Analysis –Upgrade/Downgrade soft switches –Faster communications (up to 57.6K baud)
MM 3.00 Overview6 New Concepts: Default vs. Template Support Table Editors –Defaults: Same concept used in MM 2.12 Used in MM 3.00 for Profile Independent Editors Includes: Site, Meter Diagnostics, Rate Selection, and Modem Configuration Editors May be modified and used directly by a Program May be shared by kV or kV2 programs (except for Diagnostics support table)
MM 3.00 Overview7 New Concepts: Default vs. Template Support Table Editors –Templates: Used in MM 3.00 for Profile Dependent Editors Includes: Basic Meter, Display Tables, I/O & Alerts, Recorder, and Totalization Editors May not be modified or used directly by a Program Defaults may be created from a Template for a profile dependent editor A support table named Default in a profile dependent editor will be the starting point for new support tables that use the same Profile. If no Default exists for a profile, the Template will be the starting point for a new support table.
MM 3.00 Overview8 New Concepts: Default vs. Template
MM 3.00 Overview9 New Concepts: Shared Resources TOU Schedule and Calendar files –Now considered “Resources” –May be shared by kV and kV2 programs –Referenced in Rate Selection editor –Rate Selection support table may also be used in making a partial program –“Delayed implementation” of a Rate Selection support table is supported in the kV2
MM 3.00 Overview10 New Concepts: Partial Programming Applies to kV2 Only –Rate Selection (TOU Schedule and Calendar) Profile Independent May use any defined TOU Schedule and Calendar Must save as a unique Rate Selection table May be implemented immediately or scheduled for future implementation –Recorder Profile Dependent May change any parameter in the editor except minimum power outage duration definition Existing LP data in the meter will be cleared upon reprogramming the recorder parameters
MM 3.00 Overview11 New Concepts: Partial Programming Applies to kV2 Only –I/O & Alerts Profile Dependent May change any output parameter May only change input “magnitude per pulse” (not the type of input) May change Prompt and Table choices Interdependence with Totalization editor limits choices to existing I/O & Alerts tables only
MM 3.00 Overview12 New Concepts: Pending RTP Applies to kV2 Only –Controlled by MMDOS commands No Modem board required to change RTP state Use the Program | reConfig | rTp commands Choose “Immediate” or “Future” execution of the change of state request For “Future”, define the date/time of execution, whether to “Activate” or “Deactivate” the RTP Any RTP activation delay in the program starts at the date/time specified
MM 3.00 Overview13 New Concepts: User Groups Applies to kV and kV2 –Makes managing multiple users much easier Create a User Group set of enabled functions –Examples: Technicians - Allowed to Program & Read; Readers - Allowed to Read and perform Demand Resets New users get assigned to one of the User Groups If upgrading from MM 2.12, old users will retain their assigned functions. A new “Group” is created for each MM 2.12 user.
