The Smart Grid is a modern electricity grid allowing for distributed, renewable intermittent generation, partly owned by consumers. This requires advanced control and communication technologies in order to provide high quality power supply and secure generation, transmission and distribution. This book outlines these emerging technologies.
This essential reading focuses specifically on security and control aspects of the smart grid. It covers various related topics including smart grid architecture; communications and networking features; measuring and sensing devices; and smart transmission and distribution. Particular emphasis is placed on security, reliability, and stability features. Different control aspects of smart grid are also covered. Each chapter includes examples, case studies, simulations and experimental results, making this a practical and essential resource for professional researchers and advanced students alike.
Topics covered include;
