Advance Technic challenges and development in smart grid

I. INTRODUCTION : Advance Technic challenges and development

The smart grid has been planned as nationwide network that uses information technology to deliver electricity efficiently, reliably, and securely. It also called as “electricity with brain”, enables as two way communication, two way flows of Energy and information. It has some of attractive features. Unlike the existing grid, smart grids have the capability of self monitoring, self healing, pervasive control and adaptive islanding, enhanced interoperability.
