Advanced Technologies Implementation Framework for a Smart Grid

Nampuraja Enose
Abstract—Smart Grid is not a single technology or a concept; rather a vision of a perfect blend of advanced technologies and applications. The key technologies and applications are grouped into integrated communications, sensing and measurement, advanced components, advanced control methods, and improved interfaces and decision support; each of them playing an active role in determining the behavior of the grid. The deployment of more and more of these technologies and applications has a great potential for driving innovative ways of producing, consuming, and controlling electricity, yielding benefits to utilities, consumers and the society. This could be implementation of ‘smart’ meters, ‘smart’ sensors, advanced communications and intelligent management & control, which when interconnected provides new opportunities to improve efficiency and effectiveness of the system. But the huge implementation of diverse technologies and applications along with its associated infrastructure has thrown up challenges in terms of efficient implementation and management of systems. This paper therefore brings out the critical need of a framework to integrate these technologies and applications, and proposes an architecture that can classify these diverse technologies and integrate them in a single platform for efficient management of the systems and its associated performance. It also addresses the basic requirement of scalability, flexibility, security, consumer privacy, integration and interoperability.

Index Terms—Advanced technologies, smart meters, sensors, intelligent electronic devices, management system, FCAPS.
