Advanced Metering Infrastructure
Smart Grid uses technologies of automation and information communication to construct the Integrity Smart Grid. The primary step of Smart Grid construction is the deployment of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), which could read the meter data automatically and make the usage of energy efficiently. Messages are collected distributively and sent through limited network resources. Under the AMI architecture, it contains merer data management system, concentrator and smart meter that provides the information collection of thousand users. Concentrator is a relay station in the middle of smart meters and control center. There are some issues upon this system: the loading of control center, the amount of data traffic and the size of total data. This paper focus on analysing different situation of data traffic for reducing transmission frequency and total data volume. We use concentrator for reducing transmission frequency from smart meters to control center which also reduces the total data volume. We have two phases for reducing the transmission frequency and the total data volume. Moreover, our scheme could reduce the loading of control center.
