1. Kh
• Watt hour constant
• The value of 1 revolution of the meter disk, Expressed in watt hours.
2. Rr
• Register Ratio
• The 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.
3. Rg
• Gear Ratio
• The 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.
4. Rs
• Reduction at Shaft
• The ratio between the number of teeth on the 1st gear of the register to the number of entries on the disk shaft.
5. Kr
• Register Constant or Multiplier
• Multiplier of the register, due to gearing.
6. TF
• Transformer Factor
• Multiplier of the register, due to CT’s and/or CT X PT ratios.
7. Test Amps
Amperage used with line voltage to set the speed of the disk in 1 hour’s time. (1000Rph 1phase) (500Rph Poly phase)
8. PKh
Watt-hour Constant x Transformer Factor
9. Demand
The average rate of consumption over a specific period of time
10. Calibrating Constant
The inverse of the number of current circuits in series under test.

(Establishes the Kh of individual elements)
11. Power
An electrical load expressed in watts or kilowatts without a relationship to time. E x I=Watts
12. Energy
An electrical load expressed in watts or kilowatts times the number of hours it’s used.

E x I x time factor = Kwhr
13. Stator (Meter Element)
The unit that provides the driving torque in a watt-hour meter. It includes the Potential-Coil, the Current-Coil and the related framework to provide a magnetic flux or path
14. Blondel's Theorum
In a system of N-conductors, N-1 metering elements properly connected, will measure power and/or energy consumed, provided that all potential coil(s) have a common connection in which no current circuit(s) are connected.
