A
s energy needs continue to expand
with the growing use of renewable
sources by customers, the electric system
of the future will face new challenges
in balancing electricity flow on the grid.
Management and control of future grids
will require the support of robust and reli-
able networks for gathering information
from wide ranging sensory devices and
actuators. For the distributed generation
system, in particular, the basic problem is
a lack of communication network infra-
structure, which is a key factor in monitor-
ing the grid. Under dynamic conditions,
keeping the balance between demand
and supply, as well as enabling the grid to
reroute power in the case of local outag-
es, are among the most important challenges. Despite the
fact that wired technologies offer a good level of reliability
and security, they are very costly. Therefore, in the absence
of any infrastructure network, wireless is often viewed as
the most cost effective alternative to wired
communications. The advancement of var-
ious IoT-centric wireless communication
technologies is expected to have a major
impact in supporting distributed genera-
tion grid systems that can provide access
to a large number of smart sensors, actu-
ators, and protective switches, as well as
consumer endpoints on utility networks.
With the anticipated deployment of new
advanced technologies and smart devic-
es in the next-generation electric system,
developing a robust wireless network
along with effective design architectures
for inter/intra communications between
various entities and players in smart grid
domains will become more challenging.
As interoperability, reliability, scalability, resiliency, and secu-
rity remain key tenets of the next generation of active grid
systems, the wireless research community will continue to
confront these challenges.
