Smart grid is the system of the future. It will utilise the elements of the power system grid from end to end from power generation to individual utilisation; increased control of domestic appliances and informed cost saving options; plug in of electric vehicles; embedded and varied renewable generation; intelligent fast automated response to disturbance and improved system stability; and overall optimal utilisation of transmission, distribution systems, energy and reduction of carbon capture.
It is going to be these advanced and versatile systems that will adapt our existing infrastructures across the globe to meet the new challenges of the system.
There are many different elements of the future grid and now is the time to showcase these smart grid components.
