Smart Meter Use Cases for New Energy Services Dong Su Lee, Yong Soon Kim, Seung Wan Kim

Abstract

The introduction of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) is imminent in Korea as it is expected to demonstrate the next generation AMI in 2021. In addition, several countries around the world such as Italy, Germany have already deployed and operating AMIs or are planning. They also show a trend to utilize various functions of AMI to use new energy services for reasons of energy efficiency. In order to reflect this trend in recent years, specific use cases and related procedures should be defined. Thus, in this paper, we classify and structure the business cases of AMI that are required to support new energy services. Furthermore, we will summarize the lower business use cases and present the information exchange sequences of the business use cases in class and sequence unified modeling language diagrams. 5 use cases are found, we carefully selected which new energy service to support beyond the structural and functional limitations of the existing infrastructure in Korea. We hope that through such work, the foundation for implementing and operating various functions of AMI can be laid.
