Abstract: This paper presents new design of a smart energy meter integrated with a monitoring and control system to monitor the quality of electrical power supplied to consumers and to protect them upon abnormal situations with the capability of storing all the events in real date and time as a history. This system provides several advantages for utility companies such as consumed energy, issuing the bills remotely and use multiple tariffs for billing electricity at different times during the day. Also the system offers a capability to disconnect/resume the supply for a client if the bill has not being paid after a specific time or other clients caught in electricity theft.
