The research contains theoretical analysis of the possibilities of development of a new type of devices for measurement of the consumption of energy resources in the communal services system. Novel alternatives for improvement of intelligent measuring instruments are offered in the article. On the basis of the presented calculation method, a mathematical model of the digital measuring signal for intelligent flowmeters at a uniform and at a non-uniform flow of liquids is offered. This would allow increasing the accuracy of the measuring signal as well as creating a new type of intelligent measuring devices for exact accounting of the consumption of energy resources in separate households of the communal services system. Theoretical researches showed that traditional flowmeters of cold and hot water in separate premises are unsuitable for commercial calculations as they make measurements in the critical zone of the error of the device, thus exceeding the admissible accuracy standard norm. Therefore the present state standards of Latvia for the water and heat energy account in households should be reconsidered. For assessment of the parameters of flowmeter’s target signal, a calculation method of the mathematical model with two keys of digital signals (basic and automatic correction) is offered. The main reasons of fundamental errors are defined. Examples how to calculate the target measuring signal are given. By using Laplace transform method, a novel mathematical calculation model of the measuring and correction signals of intellectual flowmeters has been developed.
