Many humans ponder the shrewdpermanent Grid as an influence distribution staff equipped on complicated shrewdpermanent metering-but that is only one point of a miles greater and extra complicated procedure. The "Smart Grid" calls for new applied sciences all through power iteration, transmission and distribution, or even the houses and companies being served by way of the grid. This additionally represents new details paths among those new structures and companies, all of which represents hazard, requiring a extra thorough method of the place and the way cyber protection controls are implemented.

This perception presents a close structure of the total shrewdpermanent Grid, with suggested cyber safety features for every thing from the availability chain to the consumer.

Sample text

It is estimated that the United States loses approximately “300 billion kWh of power from transmission and distribution (T&D) line loss. ”14 • Asset management: There are many devices within the electricity network, probably more devices than any other industry network. With so many devices in the network, is it possible to manage the many assets (or devices) in the network in a better way? By doing so, it would be possible to increase the life of the asset, and also its performance. This of course provides greater efficiency and has the potential to reduce costs for all stakeholders.

This of course does not address all of the potential risks, and the proceeding chapters will begin to address many of the security and privacy risks of the Smart Grid. SUMMARY The Smart Grid represents a new technological era of resilience, performance, and efficiency across the entire power industry, from generation all the way to consumption. While the benefits are numerous, the Smart Grid also represents risk. The same systems that increase the value of the grid also expose the grid to digital threats— ranging from denial of service to data theft, and from the invasion of privacy to the sabotage of a critical national infrastructure.

Transmission and distribution architecture Once energy is generated, it must then be transmitted to distribution points, where it can be intelligently and efficiently delivered to the end user. While transmission systems and distribution systems are architecturally similar, there are very important differences. For example, transmission occurs at high voltages (115 kV and above) to transport large amounts of electricity between primary substations, whereas distribution systems step down the voltages to deliver safe and usable electricity to homes and businesses.
