Hello guys.

I want a help in understanding how electromechanical meters work. To be specific I want to know what's the circuit that rotates the disk with kilowatt readings. schemes would be great.

Thanks.

its a simple induction motor, the house current goes through coils, inducing current of a different phase in the aluminum disk.

There are no electronic components in the meter. It's a metal disk that is rotated by a magnetic field and turns the dials through gears.
