The systems used to manage electricity distribution networks are limited in terms of data inferred from the consumption of each power transformer along the network. Therefore, simulation programs operate according to a limitation, since all simulation applications are based on available data inferred from the demand of distribution transformers. Such data are generally estimated and corrected by a single existing measurement value in the output of the feeder. This paper proposes the development of a technique that allows the compatibility of data from a restricted set of measurements. In this sense, the P-Median problem will be used for physical location of the meters, taking the power of the transformers and the distance between them as input variables. The model is then tested through two real cases in circuits of 10 and 16 bus bars.
