Consumers are demanding for safe, secured and reliable grid system, with the introduction of systems digitalization the demand for smart grid is no exception. A smart grid is an intelligent automated system for monitoring the flow of electricity and making the distribution of electricity more efficient. In a world where protecting the environment is a major concern, it is important to find cost-effective ways of reducing power usage and increasing energy independence.
A smart grid includes the utilization and production of renewable energy. Consumers now have a choice to generate their own electricity for personal consumption, and any excess of electrical energy can be sold to the local utilities supply companies. This can be achieved by installing smart meters in the premises. Smart grids possess demand response capacity to help balance electrical consumption with supply, as well as the potential to integrate new technologies to enable energy storage devices and the large-scale use of electric vehicles.
