For ten years Polish distribution companies have implemented several AMR and AMI pilot projects. In Poland, the distribution system operator (DSO) equips households with smart energy meters (e.g. in the United Kingdom – the energy supplier, which can be changed by the customer). Over these years the operators collected a lot of experience with these pilot projects. The author of this publication describes his personal experience in the research projects in which he was involved, directly or indirectly, as well ones of which he has received information about from the DSOs. This article does not present the experiences from all major AMI system projects in Poland, but only from few projects in which the author of this article participated. The author participated in projects in which the smart meters utilize a variety of different technologies: PLC, GPRS, HSCSD, RS-232, etc. In this article, however, he focuses only on his experience in working with PLC technology. This paper presents the requirements, considerations and experience gained in the development and pilot implementation of AMI systems in Poland
