Smart Grid

  1. 1. Presentation based on: Smart Grid Technology POWER SYSTEMS ANALYSIS EEE4103 COURSE INSTRUCTOR: FAIZ, RETHWAN ROOM – 245 SPRING 2013
  2. 2. GROUP MEMBERS: • Ahsan, Md. Ashraf Ul • Sabrina, Faria • Mahmud, Hasan • Ahmed, Mukit
  3. 3. TOPICS TO BE DISCUSSED : • Introduction to smart grid technology. • Implementation and explanation. • Advantages and disadvantages • Users and usage.
  4. 4. WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU TAKE THE 20TH CENTURY POWER GRID AND UPDATE IT WITH THE 21ST CENTURY TECHNOLOGY?
  5. 5. SO WHAT EXACTLY IS SMART GRID? • Automatic reconfiguration and exertion of a level of control. • 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.
  6. 6. PILLARS OF SMART GRID: • Transmission Optimization • Demand Side Management • Distribution Optimization • Asset Optimization
  7. 7. MAKING THE CASE FOR SMART GRIDS • Reduction in carbon emissions. • Better growth management of electricity consumption. • Decentralization of energy generation. • Offers better Consumer Service. • Optimizing Distribution.
  8. 8. OVERVIEW OF SMART GRID
  9. 9. • Self healing • Smart grid is designed to integrate sources • Real time data is available • Fast and automatic • A complete digital system • Not self healing • Does not allow integration of sources • Real time data is not available • Slow and manual • Mostly involves analog functions SMART GRID vs EXISTING SYSTEM Existing system Smart grid
  10. 10. WHAT DOES BUILDING A SMART GRID INVOLVE?
  11. 11. SMART GRID INCLUDES: • Integrated communications • Sensing and measurement • Smart meters • Superconductive wires • Storage devices • Wireless communication
  12. 12. ADVANTAGES OF SMART GRID TECHNOLOGY: • Peak Leveling • Democratization of Electricity • Self-Healing • More Reliable Power • More Efficient Renewable Power • A Cleaner Mix of Energy Sources
  13. 13. • Smart Devices & Smart Homes • Reducing Our Carbon Footprints • Smart jobs
  14. 14. DISADVANTAGES OF SMART GRID TECHNOLOGY: • 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.
  15. 15. CHALLENGES IN ADOPTING SMART GRID: • Costly • Complicated structure • Gain control of meters • Security and privacy • Hacker • Power theft
  16. 16. STILL, WHY SMART GRID??
  17. 17. • 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
  18. 18. SMART GRIDS IMPLEMENTED SO FAR: • Glendale water and power • Burbank water and meter • Rock hill utilities • United Arab Emirates • Avista
  19. 19. Smart home, smart meter, smart city- overall, a smart system is going to be the reality in recent future.
  20. 20. “Our brains make the world smart, so we can be dumb in peace.”
  21. 21. Change is not coming. Change is here.
  22. 22. Thank you 
