There are large amount of quality and monitoring data of electricity meters, it is crucial and valuable to assess the operating performance of the smart electricity meters automatically with this data. In this paper, we propose an intelligent operating performance assessment method for smart electric meters based on selective ensemble of max margin Bayesian classifiers. The genetic algorithm is firstly used to select most relevant attributes for assessment, and max margin Bayesian classifiers is utilized to make the assessment. We use the bagging and clustering to ensemble multiple classifiers to obtain better results. The experimental results illustrate the efficiency and effectiveness of the proposed method.
