Building the smart grid means adding computer and communications technology to the existing electricity grid. With an overlay of digital technology, the grid promises to operate more efficiently, securely and reliably. Therefore it can also accommodate more solar and wind power, which are inconsistent sources of energy that can become more reliable and efficiently allocated.
Building the super grid, the power to supply not only a large area, but also convenient to multiple small-scale electricity generation facilities (such as houses or cars covered in solar panels) grid power supply.
TRADITIONAL TRANSMISSION SYSTEMS
Before Smart Grid, traditional systems were based on one-way power flow and simple interactions.
SMART GRID SYSTEMS
With the introduction of Smart Grid, two-way power flow is possible with multi-stakeholder interactions.
