Electricity meter design continues to evolve, but has meter performance testing kept pace? Sensus and EnerNex, the electric power research and consulting firm, answer that and other questions in Modern Electricity Meter Safety, Accuracy and Performance Testing.

This report examines the history of electricity meter design and testing. It describes the industry standards by both the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Underwriter Laboratories (UL), and suggests how additional testing could help to test, detect, and—in some cases—predict failure at the network, site, and device levels.
