Block interval demand

For block interval demand method types, you specify a period of time interval (or block) that the meter uses for the demand calculation.

Select/configure how the meter handles that interval from one of these different methods:

Type Description
Timed Sliding Block Select an interval from 1 to 60 minutes (in 1-minute increments). If the interval is between 1 and 15 minutes, the demand calculation updates every 15 seconds. If the interval is between 16 and 60 minutes, the demand calculation updates every 60 seconds. The meter displays the demand value for the last completed interval.
Timed Block Select an interval from 1 to 60 minutes (in 1-minute increments). The meter calculates and updates the demand at the end of each interval.
Timed Rolling Block Select an interval and a subinterval. The subinterval must divide evenly into the interval (for example, three 5-minute subintervals for a 15-minute interval). Demand is updated at the end of each subinterval. The meter displays the demand value for the last completed interval.

Block interval demand example

The following illustration shows the different ways power demand is calculated using the block interval method. In this example, the interval is set to 15 minutes.
