COURSE INSTRUCTOR: FAIZ, RETHWAN
ROOM – 245
• Ahsan, Md. Ashraf Ul
• Sabrina, Faria
• Mahmud, Hasan
• Ahmed, Mukit
TOPICS TO BE DISCUSSED :
• Introduction to smart grid technology.
• Implementation and explanation.
• Advantages and disadvantages
• Users and usage.
WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU TAKE THE 20TH
CENTURY POWER GRID AND UPDATE IT WITH THE
21ST CENTURY TECHNOLOGY?
SO WHAT EXACTLY IS SMART GRID?
• Automatic reconfiguration and exertion of a level of
• Combination of hardware, management and reporting
software in an intelligent communication infrastructure.
• Consumers and utility companies alike can manage,
monitor and respond to energy issues.
• It monitors, protects and automatically optimizes the
operation of its interconnected elements.
• The Smart Grid in large, sits at the intersection of
Energy, IT and Telecommunication Technologies.
PILLARS OF SMART GRID:
• Transmission Optimization
• Demand Side Management
• Distribution Optimization
• Asset Optimization
MAKING THE CASE FOR
• Reduction in carbon emissions.
• Better growth management of electricity
• Decentralization of energy generation.
• Offers better Consumer Service.
• Optimizing Distribution.
• Self healing
• Smart grid is designed to
• Real time data is available
• Fast and automatic
• A complete digital system
• Not self healing
• Does not allow integration of
• Real time data is not available
• Slow and manual
• Mostly involves analog functions
SMART GRID vs EXISTING SYSTEM
Existing system Smart grid
ADVANTAGES OF SMART GRID
• Peak Leveling
• Democratization of Electricity
• More Reliable Power
• More Efficient Renewable Power
• A Cleaner Mix of Energy Sources
• Smart Devices & Smart Homes
• Reducing Our Carbon Footprints
• Smart jobs
DISADVANTAGES OF SMART GRID
• Security and privacy cost.
• Two way communications can be hacked.
• Technology components are expensive.
• Present Infrastructure is inadequate and
requires augmentation to support the
growth of Smart Grids.
CHALLENGES IN ADOPTING SMART
• Complicated structure
• Gain control of meters
• Security and privacy
• Power theft
• Energy crisis
• Necessity to integrate our sources
• Power management
• Smart tariff
• Access to the information of real time usage
• Two way monitoring, transparent billing system
• Improvements can be made
• Smarter, faster, future
SMART GRIDS IMPLEMENTED SO
• Glendale water and power
• Burbank water and meter
• Rock hill utilities
• United Arab Emirates
Smart home, smart meter,
smart city- overall, a smart
system is going to be the
reality in recent future.
