Abstract

With the development of the smart grid technology, networking technology (NT) plays a significant role in the smart grid. NT enables to realize the smart grid vision mainly focused on (a) wide area monitoring and control for transmission system (b) distribution automation for low voltage distribution system and (c) smart metering for prosumer’s participation. Synchrophasor technology enables better situational awareness and decision support and smart meters deployment for end-users constitutes major investment as part of the smart grid development for power distribution system. The two-way communications between ‘power utility’ and ‘smart meters installed near end-user customers’ assisted by meter data management systems helps to potentially realize numerous applications for enhanced reliability and efficiency of active distribution system. NT also brings cyber vulnerabilities and it is important to analyze the impact of possible cyber-attacks on the power grid. In this invited talk, networking and data delivery requirements will be discussed for wide area monitoring and smart metering applications as well as a real-time, cyber-physical co-simulation testbed to do cyber-physical analysis.
