Smart Grid Communications Market Key Takeaways


Smart grid networking offers two-way communication between various components of a utility grid, which enables better network management and provides data from different phases such as generation, transmission, and distribution. Installation of communication networks on utility grids provide integrated communication that leads to substation automation, demand response, supervisory control & data acquisition, distribution automation, energy management, real-time control, information and data exchange, asset utilization and increased reliability.

The communication between different grid components helps in operating the network. These components interact with one another through routers, gateways, and bridges, which are further connected to each other to form a mesh network. Infrastructure information required to implement a smart grid includes acquiring and transmitting the data from the electrical appliances and sensors to smart meters. Further, it sends the acquired data to the utility centers through wired or wireless medium.

The smart grid communication technology ensures efficient scheduling, dispatching of power, and effective grid discipline. Additionally, a smart grid enables applications such as outage management, automated metering infrastructure (AMI), automatic load shedding, distribution automation, and the ability to manage alternative energy sources. Similarly, a wireless smart grid communication network support these applications remotely.

Rapid technological advancements have led to the increased usage of wireless technologies, mobile devices, and field-based sensors. These technologies are used for controlling supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, eliminating the need of machine-to-machine technology. Such advanced features allow traditional power grid to offer high-security, improved information storage, robust reliability, and substantial efficiency.

Market Drivers, Restraints, Trends, and Opportunities

  • Rising implementation of smart grids to address the electricity-based distribution infrastructure and transmission problems is expected to boost the smart grid communications market during the forecast period.
