Technologies And Communication In Automation Electricity Networks – The Smart Grids
Course Description
A smart grid is an electricity distribution network that can monitor electricity flowing within itself and, based on this self awareness, adjust to changing conditions. It does this by automatically reconfiguring the network and/or exerting a level of control over connected demand and generation. The development of Smart Grid is a global trend. The activities in different parts of the world reflect the regional resources and needs. We have seen large scale integration of wind generators and solar energy devices into the power grids. Very large off-shore wind farms are on the horizon. Increasingly automated and intelligent distribution systems are in operation in various countries. On the transmission side, a significant number of Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) are now collecting a massive amount of information for monitoring of power system dynamics. Demand side response and other programs for customers’ choice are being developed and enhanced by the power industry.
