    Hi,

    You can group utility installations together to create installation groups. An installation group consists of

    a primary installation and one or more secondary installations. In order to create an installation group,

    you must:

    o Enter a grouping type in the historical part of the utility installation that you want to use as the

    primary installation.

    o Enter an installation role in the historical part of the utility installations that you want to use as

    secondary installations. Enter the key of the primary installation in the Primary Installation field.

    You can view all installations that belong to an installation group in the transaction Display Installation

    (ES32). To do this, select Display Installation Group from the menu. You can also use the report

    ISU_INSTGR_DISPLAY for this. If you enter an installation that belongs to an installation group in the

    initial screen, the report displays all other installations in this group. The transaction Billing View of

    Installation contains a similar function. If you select the Complete Installation Groups field, the system

    displays all installations in an installation group. In the transaction Monitoring Meter Reading Data, you

    can also select the Installation Group field (in the Installation section) to display all billing orders in an

    installation group.

    The most important function of installation groups is that they support a new form of multiple-installation

    billing. When primary installations are billed, you can access billing data from secondary installations.

    When secondary installations are billed, you can also access billing data from primary installations. You

    can define these billing rules in the IMG activity Define Billing Rules for Installation Groups.

    You can use this technique, for example, to bill serial switchings:

    o Define the utility installation with the primary meter as the primary installation.

    o Define utility installations with secondary meters as secondary installations.

    o When you bill the primary installation, use the data exchange from the secondary installations to the

    primary installation to access consumption values in the secondary installations.

    o Use the data exchange from the primary installation to the secondary installations to distribute

    consumption value difference (consumption from primary meters minus total consumption from

    secondary meters) among the secondary installations.

    This is an alternative way of billing serial switchings. Previously, all secondary meters had to be installed

    in the secondary installations as well as in the primary installation. If you use installation groups, you no

    longer have to install large numbers of meters in the primary installation. In addition to this, you do not

    have to read all meters on the same day. This procedure also enables you to distribute consumption value difference. However, if you use installation groups, all secondary installations - within certain intervals - have to be billed together with the primary installation.

    Regards,

    You have to create One installation group.

    after this assign installations to this group.

    1) first installation we will call as primary installation

    2) second installation we will call as secondary installations.

    I know this much only. I will let you know if i get more information on this.

    Regards,

      Please keep on giving your suggestions.

      Please also guide me how can we use Energy Data Management. What are functionalities we can use.

      Can we do energy audit based on that? If possible then please guide. Please guide what are transactions codes we can use in EDM for energy audit if functionality is there.

      Thanks and Regards
