Smart Components

Energy efficiency and sustainability are major concerns in today’s society. The expansion of distributed generation from renewable sources and the diffusion of new plants, large and small (even at home), have led to a radical change in energy distribution. The electrical network is no longer just a channel to transmit and distribute electricity from large power plants to end users, but it becomes a "Smart Grid", which can manage two-way energy flows; this means an interaction between producers and consumers aimed at forecasting the consumption needs and adapting with flexibility the energy production and consumption. A network can communicate by exchanging information on the flows of energy, with improved efficiency by managing peak demand, avoiding power cuts and reducing the load where it is needed.

What we do

CESI Group can provide tests on electronic smart components according to internationally recognized standards:

Electronic energy meter
CEI EN 50470-1 CEI EN 50470-3
Low voltage concentrator
CEI EN 50065-1 CEI EN 50065-3
​Electric vehicle charger
ENEL EN.11RT0002-0​
​RGDAT (directional fault detection)
ENEL DY1059​
ENEL DX1217​
UPDC (remote terminal unit for load management)
GRTN DRRPX02038 Rev.1

Further tests according national standards and specific customer requirements are also available on request.

Where we do it

Our testing laboratories are distributed over the three platforms and include:


Due to the large experience acquired on smart metering since over 10 years, CESI Group laboratories can offer the opportunity to characterize and qualify the smart components in several technical aspects such as power-line communication performance and environmental tests (EMC and climatic). Moreover CESI Group is involved in European EnLight Project, too, which aims to the development of an Intelligent Lighting System (reduction of energy consumption by up to 40% compared with today’s LED systems.​
