Back to the overview

A Meteringpoint defined either a clearly position in the supply network, or a merger of measuring points (virtual Meteringpoint). Thus every Meteringpoint is associated to exactly one medium or Network operator. When the user creates a Distributing plant, so system-Meteringpoint for the Distributing plant sums and differences automatically.


Each created Meteringpoint need a Meteringpoint license. System Meteringpoints not require a license. For Licensing or associating to a Location or even mediums, is a Licence manager available.
