This work focuses on the development of a metering system that will be used to evaluate power distribution losses. The data information used by the metering system is recorded with digital metering devices, installed over the electrical network. A metering device records some critical information relative to the electrical network and sends it to a workstation via remote wireless communication. The practical issues over implementation are discussed and analyses of precision over standard measurement equipment are presented.
