Smart Grid With I Pv6 For India

  1. 1. Smart Grid with IPv6 for India The Need for Research and Experimentation Syam Madanapalli Founder - iRam Technologies Technology Board Member of IPv6 Forum India iR TAM ECHNOLOGIES Radio Access for Mobile Internet
  2. 2. What is Smart Grid?  For me − It is an application over the Internet for efficiently and securely managing the Power generation, transmission, distribution and utilization − The number of devices to be connected to the Internet for this application would dwarfs the existing devices connected to the Internet IPv6 Makes it Possible iR T AM ECHNOLOGIES Radio Access for Mobile Internet
  3. 3. IPv6 based Architecture for the Smart Grid Sensors/ Relays/ Switches/ Transport Network Applications Aggregators Things Enterprise Enterprise Household Network Internet 3rd Party Telecom Network Utilities Web, Email, ZigBee, IPv6/WiMAX, Mobile Applications, IPv6/6lowpan/ LTE, xDSL, LAN IPv6/IPSec Microsoft Hohm, Optical Fiber, iR T IEEE 802.15.4 Google PowerMeter Satellite ? AM ECHNOLOGIES Radio Access for Mobile Internet
  4. 4. 6LoWPAN – An Open IETF Standard  6LoWPAN - IPv6 over Low power WPAN − Massively scalable networking as an end-to-end part of the Internet  6LoWPAN applicable to any low-power, low-rate wireless radio − IP protocols tie together heterogeneous networks.  IPv6 addresses the Smart grid requirements − End-to-end Addressing, Security, Mobility, Traffic Multiplexing − Reusability and Maintainability, − Web-services iR T AM ECHNOLOGIES Radio Access for Mobile Internet
  5. 5. Protocols for Things of Internet iR T AM ECHNOLOGIES Radio Access for Mobile Internet
  6. 6. India is Unique – so are the Problems  Poorly planned distribution network  Overloading of the system  Lack of reactive power supply  Low metering efficiency and bill collection  Power theft  Poor power quality  Frequent blackouts The networking community can help in fixing some of these iR T AM ECHNOLOGIES Radio Access for Mobile Internet
  7. 7. The Barriers to the Smart Grid  Regulatory and Legislative barriers  High levels of uncertainty − Technology feasibility − Business case: costs of implementation and RoI  Perceived complexity  Security and privacy  Burden of operating and maintaining the solutions Some of these requires Research and Experimentation iR T AM ECHNOLOGIES Radio Access for Mobile Internet
  8. 8. What can we do for India? ACTIONS AND EXPERIMENTS iR T AM ECHNOLOGIES Radio Access for Mobile Internet
  9. 9. Open Global Standards  India is unique: May require something unique; unless we shout nobody listens  Push for open standards based on IPv6 − More equipment vendors − No royalties, cheaper products − Easy to maintain and operate Huge population not only creates problems but solutions as well iR T AM ECHNOLOGIES Radio Access for Mobile Internet
  10. 10. Collaborative Pilot Projects  Identification of Power Thefts − Average power theft in India is 26% • Apparently in some states, it is over 50% − Networking can help in identifying the location of power theft  iBuildings − Lighting and Appliances automation − Understanding of Implementation, Maintenance and RoI  Study of Consumers − Acceptability − Energy savings by behavioral change − Study of Security and Privacy − Time based billing iR T AM ECHNOLOGIES Radio Access for Mobile Internet
