Smart Grid Technology: Application and Control
Before we can begin to modernize today’s grid, we first need a clear vision of the power system required for the future. Understanding that vision, we can create the alignment necessary to inspire passion, investment, and progress toward the Smart Grid for the 21st century. The Smart Grid is a necessary enabler for a prosperous society in the future. Energy supply has become one of the most challenging issues facing the world in the 21st Century. Growing populations, more homes and businesses and a myriad of new appliances have caused energy demand to skyrocket in every part of the country. Utilities across the globe are trying to figure out how to bring their networks into the 21st century and the digital age. This effort to make the power grid more intelligent is generally referred to as creating a “smart grid”. The industry sees this transformation to a smart grid improving the methods of delivery as well as consumption. In This Paper ‘State of the Art’ of Smart Grid along with the vision, application and control are introduced. This Paper also identifies the advantage, Growth and the problem for Smart Grid. The Paper also presents a case study of Implementation of Smart grid Technologies discussed on the basis of recent references and technical reports issued from government and research and academic authorities.
