Do EMC disturbances affect Smart Meters? - ESMIG Position on TU Twente Study

29 Mar 2017

After weeks of careful deliberation ESMIG along with its members, have put together a paper explaing the unrealistic conditions in which the TU Twente study on the accuracy of smart meters was conducted and why the results are not relevant.

The main conclusions from this paper are :

  • The electromagnetic interference phenomena created in the tests of the University of Twente grossly exceed emissions limits allowable under EU regulation for equipment typically used in households.
  • These conditions would not be found in any imaginable normal household scenario.
  • There is no reason to question smart metering technology.
