Recent developments in smart metering applications have led to the conceptualization and construction of a new type of energy meter, operating on the basis of event-driven principles. The event-driven metering concepts are applied to represent the information on the electrical load patterns, which have an integral value. This paper explains why these concepts are different from the ones used for event-based applications in other domains, discusses the principles used in the new type of electricity meter, presents the data formats structured in such a way to provide detailed knowledge representation, and shows a number of results on real-case applications. A specific index is defined in order to represent the effectiveness of the event-driven metering scheme illustrated to represent the details of themetered pattern, comparing the results with the ones that could be reached in the most favorable case through regular timer-driven metering. The presentation of specific applications based on real-life datasets highlights the advantages of the event-driven energy metering over the traditional timer-driven metering scheme.
