I WILL LIKE TO KNOW THE EFFECT OF USING AUTOMATIC VOLTAGE REGULATOR ON ENERGY READINGS OF MY ELECTRICITY METER.
FOR INSTANCE DUE TO DISTRIBUTION PROBLEM THE VOLTAGE AT MY 200 IS 200V INSTEAD OF 240V MY SINGLE PHASE ANALOG METER IS DESIGNED TO MEASURE. IS THE METER WOULD MAKE PAY MORE BY INCREASING THE VOLTAGE TO 240 WITH REGULATOR(TRANSFORMER ) AT MY HOME.
as the voltage increases power consumption increses as u know w=vicosphy suppose at my place i have 200v and at ur place 240 or more u r paying 10 to 15 % more energy bill for the same load at our place
i have placed avr at my place in mains of my home and my neighbour comes and see my bill and confused that i use more and pay less
