​This project focuses on possibilities with switches in Smart Meter. The main aim of the project is to contribute to a more sustainable society by smoothing the power and making efficient use of available grid. The objectives of the project are to find out what impact simultaneous multiple Smart Meter switching has on the power quality, future requirement of switches in Smart Meter, to get a trust for the switches from the customer and also to find out the possible use of remote Smart Meter switching in current systems. The main activity to be undertaken under the project is to test the system by remotely disconnect/connect multiple customers under a substation and to see the impact of remote switching on the power quality.
