Aleš Glavina (2009) The remote configuration of SEP2W.NET system's services. EngD thesis.
Manual reading of counters is still very common today, despite the availability of appropriate technological solutions. Automatic reading is gaining importance in electrodistribution companies, but at a very slow pace. The distribution companies are well aware of the needs to rationalize the use of electrical power and to minimize losses. Iskraemeco developed a system for automatic reading and infrastructure management which can remotely manage up to 1 million counters. Even a short time ago, the system was still in development and the biggest efforts were put in funcional improvement. The first version of the system, named Base, is to be released soon, but development and improvement are still ongoing. An important improvement is remote service configuration. It is not rational to configure each service on its own computer, as some can be far away and since today's techology allows better and cheaper alternatives, we at Iskraemeco decided to configure services remotely from one central station. A graphic interface allows us to configure all services that run simultaneously on one computer and, at the same time, eases the very managment of services, since a modified XML document is much more readable. My graduation thesis is aimed at presenting the SEP2W.NET system with emphasys on services, their functions and configuration parameters. Those are the crucial point of the thesis, as they are the ones who need to be continuously edited. Despite the very description of parameters, there was a need to improve the user's experience, so I created a graphical interface for configuration files editing, which is not an independent application, but is part of the Manager.
