This study investigates the feasibility of building a tool to simulate the many components of a continental grid, including high-voltage hardware, information technology, and software. The goal is a seamless energy management system that can be used for grid planning and operations.
As utilities deploy new smart grid devices and applications, they need a pervasive communications infrastructure that enables various grid elements to talk with one another and with central and distributed control systems. To help utilities implement such infrastructure, this study investigates current and future communications requirements for transmission and distribution applications; the parts of the […]
