Abstract

To realize the Bali Eco Smart Grid program, state electricity company (PLN) Bali implemented the advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) through the deployment of a pilot project of 1,000 2 ways smart meters based on LoRa WAN in the Kuta area, Bali. The selection of long range wide area network (LoRa WAN) as smart meter access technology is due to low costs, low power, ease of implementation and technology readiness. LoRa WAN is one of low power wide area network (LPWAN) technology. For deploying smart meter AMI based on LoRa WAN throughout Bali, the right strategy is needed. This research will analyze the strategy of deploying smart meter AMI based on LoRa WAN using strength, weakness, opportunity, and threat (SWOT) analysis. The stages of SWOT analysis are through the collection of internal and external factors obtained through techno-economic studies and surveys to customers, the general public, and PLN employees. Next, matching it by compiling an internal and external evaluation matrix, where an appropriate strategy is a progressive strategy (SO strategy). Components S and W are obtained from the survey while O and T are obtained from observing conditions outside of PLN. It is shown from the SWOT analysis results, obtained S-W = 5.95 and O-T = 2.59, so the strategy is in location (5.95, 2.59) quadrant I. Strategies for deploying smart meters based on WAN LoRa are progressive strategies.
