With the improvement of operation monitoring and data acquisition levels of smart meters, mining data associated with smart meters becomes possible. Besides, precisely assessing the operation quality of smart meters plays an important role in purchasing metering equipment and improving the economic benefits of power utilities. First, seven indexes for assessing operation quality of smart meters are defined based on the metering data and the Gaussian mixture model (GMM) clustering algorithm is applied to extract the typical index data from the massive data of smart meters. Then, the combination optimization model of index’s weight is presented with the subject experience of experts and object difference of data considered; and the comprehensive assessment algorithm based on the revised technique for order preference by similarity to an ideal solution (TOPSIS) is proposed to evaluate the operation quality of smart meters. Finally, the proposed data-driven assessment algorithm is illustrated by the actual metering data from Zhejiang Ningbo power supply company of China and practical application is briefly introduced. The results show that the proposed algorithm is effective for assessing the operation quality of smart meters and could be helpful for energy measurement and asset management. View Full-Text
