Grid inefficiency

Why we need it ? If we could make electric grid even 5% more efficient, we would save more than 42 GW of energy: the equivalent of production from 42 large coal fired plants.

What is smart grid ?

What is smart grid ?



Grid is a term used for an electricity network which may support all or some of the following four distinct operations. 1. Electricity generation 2. Electric power transmission 3. Electricity distribution 4. Electricity control.

History of smart grid.

Technological improvements of the power system largely rose in the 50s and 60s. Nuclear power, computer controls helped fine tune the grids effectiveness and operability. With todays technology such as wireless protocol, network infrastructure the power grid becomes smart grid, capable of recording, analyzing and reacting to transmission data, allowing for efficient management of resources, and cost-effective appliances for consumers.

History of smart grid. 1980s, Automatic meter reading was used

1990s, Advanced Metering Infrastructure. Smart meters used to monitor in real time. 2000, Italy's Telegestore Project - to network (27 million) of homes using smart meters. Project cost of 2.1 bn euro annual savings of 500 mn euro

Funtions of Smart GridSelf-healing Using real-time information from embedded sensors and automated controls to anticipate, detect, and respond to system problems, a smart grid can automatically avoid or mitigate power outages, power quality problems, and service disruptions

Consumer participation This takes shape in two forms electricity production and electricity consumption. One of the many benefits of the Smart Grid is its ability to integrate renewable energy sources into large scale electricity production. Another is the ability to communicate in real time on a broad scale to signal requests to modify electricity consumption. Both of these benefits have profound, positive impacts for consumers.

Resist attack / Electricity Theft. Smart grid technologies better identify and respond to man-made or natural disruptions. Real-time information enables grid operators to isolate affected areas and redirect power flows around damaged facilities

Accommodate generation options Integration of small-scale, localized, or on-site power generation allows residential, commercial, and industrial customers to self-generate and sell excess power to the grid with minimal technical or regulatory barriers. This also improves reliability and power quality, reduces electricity costs, and offers more customer choice.

Optimize assets and Enable high penetration of intermittent generation sources. Optimized power flows reduce waste and maximize use of lowest-cost generation resources. Smart Grid technologies will enable power systems to operate with larger amounts of renewable energy resources since they enable both the suppliers and consumers to compensate for such intermittency.


Load adjustment Demand response support Greater resilience to loading Decentralization of power generation Price signalling to consumers

Load adjustment

The total load connected to the power grid can vary significantly over time A smart grid may warn all individual to reduce the load temporarily or continuously It predicts how many standby generators need to be used, to reach a certain failure rate In the traditional grid, the failure rate can only be reduced at the cost of more standby generators

Demand response supportAllows generators and loads to interact in an automated fashion in real time, coordinating demand to flatten spikes Allows users to cut their energy bills by telling low priority devices to use energy only when it is cheapest

Decentralization of power generationDistributed generation allows individual consumers to generate power onsite Allows individual loads to tailor their generation directly to their load, making them independent from grid power failures If a local sub-network generates more power than it is consuming, the reverse flow can raise safety and reliability issues Greater resilience to loading

Security Challenges

A recent project from security consultancy IOActive determined that an attacker with $500 of equipment and materials and a background in electronics and software engineering could take command and control of the [advanced meter infrastructure] allowing for the en masse manipulation of service to homes and businesses. According to a report in the National Journal last year, hackers in China may have already used what little infotech intel
