Smart Grid:
Communication-Enabled
Intelligence for the
Electric Power Grid

technology in a historical context along
with its fundamental, invariant physics. communication within the evolving
power grid is heavily influenced by process control and supervisory and data acquisition communication systems used in
power plants and substations. early energy
storage systems are
often used in conjunction with power generation systems and are
reviewed as well.

Chapter 3

In thIs column, the revIewer
takes a chapter-by-chapter look at the
book, Smart Grid: CommunicationEnabled Intelligence for the Electric
Power Grid. the smart grid is always
a hot topic so this book is sure to be of
interest to those seeking more information on the subject.

the historical development of the power
system along with the analogy between
power systems and communications provides a solid context for understanding
the evolution of power grid communications. Drivers for the smart grid concept
are reviewed along with the case study of
a blackout. complexity and information
theory are introduced as key components
of smart grid communication as well as
a new power system information theory.
A key component of this new theory
is leveraging the fundamental relation
between energy and information, a core
theme throughout the book.

the purpose and benefits of the power transmission system are
reviewed along with
types of communication systems that have
typically been used for
transmission. Power
grid system components that play a role in
the transmission system are progressively
introduced; the better one understands the
needs and requirements of these devices
for communication, the better the communication network can be designed and implemented. Power system concepts such
as the frequency analysis, phasors, and the
per-unit system are introduced.

Chapter 4

Power generation is one of the key components of the power grid and is evolving
rapidly. the smart grid cannot be understood without placing power generation

the distribution system must partition
large amounts of power into relatively
small amounts to many different consumers. while the general rule of local
sensing and control applies to the distribution system, communication through
the distribution system using techniques

such as distribution line carrier has a long
history. As more communication and
control are incorporated into the power
grid, the closer the grid can come to its
operating limits. Brittle system analysis
is introduced as a means of studying this
phenomena and its impact on the communication system.

Chapter 5
Demand-side management has a long history,
and lessons have been
learned about consumer
innovation with respect
to smart grid concepts.
consumer surveys related to the smart grid
show intriguing results. comprehensive
reviews of the future
power grid that will directly touch the consumer are discussed.
the basics of microgrid generation systems and the reason for their limited communication requirements are explained to
lay the foundation for further discussion
of microgrids.

Chapter 6
Fundamental physics shows us the
relationship between energy and information; this relationship quantifies the
unique aspects of communication in the
power grid and how it improves energy
efficiency. this forms the core of a new
field known as power system information
theory, explained for the first time in this
book. the energy-information relationship leads to a fundamental understanding
