DMPQ- Write a short note on the Aggregate Technical and Commercial losses ( AT & C) and smart meters

It is the difference between energy input units into the system and the units for which the payment is collected.ATC Loss is the actual measure of overall efficiency of the distribution business asit measures both technical as well as commercial losses.

ATC Loss(%) = (Energy Input – Energy Realised)X100

The concept of Aggregate Technical & Commercial losses provides a realistic picture of loss situation in the context it is measured. It is combination of energy loss (Technical loss + Theft + inefficiency in billing)& commercial loss (Default in payment + inefficiency in collection).

Smart meters measure how much gas and electricity you’re using, as well as what it’s costing you and display this on a handy in-home display.With a smart meter you can wave goodbye to complicated meter readings. The smart meter shows a digital meter reading and automatically sends the reading to your energy supplier at least once a month, so you will receive accurate, not estimated bills.
