Title Application integration at electric utilities - System interfaces for distribution management - Part 9: Interface for meter reading and control
Project Number 21890
Abstract/Scope IEC 61968-9:2009(E) specifies the information content of a set of message types that can be used to support many of the business functions related to meter reading and control. Typical uses of the message types include meter reading, meter control, meter events, customer data synchronization and customer switching. Although intended primarily for electrical distribution networks, IEC 61968-9 can be used for other metering applications, including non-electrical metered quantities necessary to support gas and water networks.
