Connection of the 3 phase smart meter without the Neutral (N) phase
The 3 Phase Smart meter can be used in the Delta configuration 3 phase power without N phase. There is various cases - customers from Norway that uses it connected in a 3 phase homes without N phase.
|The connection is a little different than usual, basically one of the 3 phases have to be connected to the N connector of the Smart Meter, the other two can be connected on one of the following connections L1, L2 or L2, L3 or L3, L1 (one connection will remain unused like in the example on the left).|
In this kind of connection, the there's only 2 measures that will work that is energy (kWh) and total working (W of all the 3 lines summed) and reactive power (var). All the rest of the measurements are wrong (the phase power (W by line) and the flows (current) will be incorrect), because it is not meant for such a connection. The two measurements will be supported in both ways.
Voltage (U1, U2, U3)
Current (I1, I2,I3)
Power – Active (P1, P2, P3 and total P1+P2+P3)
Power – Reactive total
Energy – Active power accumulated Import
Energy – Active power accumulated Export
Energy – Apparent power accumulated total
Energy – Reactive power accumulated total
It does not matter if the loads are on all three phases - individual single-phase loads (230V) can be arbitrarily connected to any two phases and the smart meter correctly measuring (not a symmetrical load condition)
