Watt hour constantThe value of 1 revolution of the meter disk, Expressed in watt hours.
Register RatioThe number of turns of the 1st gear of the register to cause the 1st (or right hand) dial pointer to complete 1 full revolution which = 10,000 watt hours or 10kwhrs.
Gear RatioThe number of turns of the meter disk to cause the 1st (or right hand) dial pointer to complete 1 full revolution = 10,000 watt hrs or 10kwhrs."
Reduction at ShaftThe ratio between the number of teeth on the 1st gear of the register to the number of entries on the disk shaft.
Register Constant or Multiplier
Multiplier of the register, due to gearing.
Transformer FactorMultiplier of the register, due to CT’s and/or CT X PT ratios.

(I = Class of meter)
A Potential-Flux and a Current-Flux, acting on a disk, in a time and space displacement.
Amperage used with line voltage to set the speed of the disk in 1 hour’s time. (1000Rph 1f)(500Rph Poly f)
The average rate of consumption over a specific period of time
The inverse of the number of current circuits in series under test.
(Establishes the Kh of individual elements)
List 3 rules of a right triangle
-Must contain a 90 degree angle-All 3 angles must = 180 degrees-Hypotenuse is always the longest side, always C-Reference angle establishes the adjacent
Output pulses (KYZ) generated by the electric meter for use by the Customer.
The service riser is the conduit containing the service-entrance conductors where the point of attachment and the connection between the service drop and the service-entrance conductors is located on a pole or below the roofline of the building being served. The conduit extends to a point, and the weather head is located, below the roof eave. The means of attachment is secured to the pole or building and is not attached to the service riser.
An instrument transformer intended for use in the measurement or control of a circuit and designed to have its primary winding connected in parallel with the circuit.
Metering of services used for the exclusive use of the individual customer for domestic purposes.
That part of the Company's distribution system, which connects the secondaries of the Company’s distribution transformers to the service drop or service lateral.
4 Steps to a 3W to 2W FM2 Conversion
-Open Pot clip after the pot coil and ground in meter housing. (bottom of pot coil)
-Ground System Neutral in Meter Housing
-Move the Customer load wire to where the System Neutral was.
-Insert a jumper capable of handling the customer load on the load side meter terminals.

CONDUIT or DUCT
Standard tubular material used for mechanical protection of electrical systems which may be exposed, buried beneath the surface of the ground, or encased in a building structure as required.
The equipment necessary to measure the customer’s electric energy use and demand including meter socket, instrument transformers, protective device and meter.
MULTIPLE METER CENTER
A pre-assembled multiple metering unit or fabricated meter center using meter sockets where two or more customers are metered at a common location.
MEANS OF ATTACHMENT
Fittings used to attach service-drop conductors.(Screw knob, clevice, etc)
The furnishing of electric energy for the exclusive use of the individual customer.
The overhead service conductors from the last distribution pole to and including the splices connecting to the service-entrance conductors.
a circuit breaker or fuseable disconnect switch, intended to constitute the main control and means of cutoff for the supply to that building.
The underground service conductors between the Company secondary transformer terminals and the connection to the service-entrance conductors.
Metering of service voltages above 480V nominal.
The efficiency of a circuit.
Replacing major components of a meter socket, current transformer cabinet, riser, mast, line or load side conductor, relocating electric service equipment, (including storm damage).
Any person, company or corporation acting under contractual agreements for either the Company or for the customer.
Standard tubular material used for mechanical protection of electrical systems which may be exposed, buried beneath the ground, or encased in a building structure as required.
A transformer that reproduces in its secondary circuit, the voltage or current proportional to its primary circuit.
Service Entrance Conductors (UG)
The service conductors between the terminals of the customer's service equipment and the point of connection to the service lateral.
What is the difference between True and Apparent power?
True = E x I x cosine theta
Apparent = E x I
