Receive Smart Grid Communication project updates from Scottish Power, ESB, Alliander, Enel, SSE, RWE AG, E.ON, Stedin, WPD, UK Power Networks | Telecoms for Smart Grids
(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) London (PRWEB UK) 8 June 2013 The smart grid will transform the way power is delivered, consumed and accounted for. Adding intelligence through the newly networked grid will increase reliability and power quality, improve responsiveness, increase efficiency and provide a platform for new applications. Driving operational efficiency for ageing infrastructure, carbon reduction, and lower energy consumption are top priorities for today's Utilities. The communications network will need to not only facilitate advanced control and monitoring, but also support additional generation, transmission, marketing and service provisions. In addition to ensuring a flexible and secure network, M2M communication will be a key component of the Smart Grid, as a means to deploy wide-scale monitoring and control.
Against this backdrop, SMi's 3rd annual Telecoms for Smart Grids conference will cover the state-of-the-art theory, key strategies, protocols, applications, deployment aspects and experimental studies of communication and networking technologies for the smart grid. The two day programme will address topics ranging from architectures and models through to integration of plug-in hybrid vehicles and security. Essential information is provided to further progress in the field and to allow power systems engineers to optimise communication systems for the smart grid. Additionally current development of both UK and European communications infrastructures for Smart Metering, Substation Automation, and Distribution Network Upgrades will be discussed through key pilot projects, results and challenges, along with a view to next steps and conclusions.
The conference will give first hand insight and experience from Utilities on the progress and outcomes of trials in Smart Grid Communications technologies, such as: Fibre to building feasibility IT Infrastructure for electric mobility 4G for Smart Grid Smart Communications in the Home Privacy and security Communications selection criteria Cost benefit, roll out considerations Experience with UK metering thus far Integration with Renewable Energy Systems Wireless IP Communications based on Wimax Monitoring, Control and low latency considerations Testing Long Range Radio Teleprotection CDMA 450 - European utility choses to deply its own private mobile network Substation LAN and WAN design challenges Data optimasation for IEC 61850 traffic over RF mesh network Expert Speakers include: Ashley C.
