Project 1: Advanced Metering Infrastructure for Smart Grid Network

Overview
 
Smart Grids are being promoted by electrical utilities and regulatory agencies worldwide as a way of addressing initiatives on energy saving, global warming and power grid reliability and security issues. The smart grid network is an integration of (i) electric power grids that delivers electricity from power generation sources to end-users and (ii) effective two-way digital communication networks between utilities and consumers that monitors, manages, and controls the grid operations, renewable resources, and energy demands.

Many technological and specification requirements must be met in order to build a smart grid network that could maximize the benefits for utility companies. One of the requirements is a dependable 2-way communication network between the utility control centers and meters at customers’ premise. Advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) establishes the communication solutions between utilities and customers and is an essential enabling technology, as part of overall smart grid strategies.
 
Technology
 
Various media technologies can be considered to provide part or entire AMI network: Broadband over power lines (BPL), Wireless (GPRS, 3G, WiFi, WiMax, proprietary RF), Private line (copper, fiber), and public dial-up, etc. Recent technology advancement on BPL has made it an attractive solution for fast AMI deployment. BPL is a technology that allows TCP/IP based data to be transmitted over utility power lines. BPL technology provides scalable two way data communication over existing power line infrastructure.
 
Challenges
 
Economical and flexible communication solutions for data collecting for low density remote rural communities could be a big challenge for planners. In most rural areas, cellular signal are not easily accessible as wireless coverage is much lower. Narrowband PLC system may provide an economical AMR solution but often lacks the real-time communication capability and reliability as it takes longer to collect data and failure rates are higher. Infrastructures built with BPL technology can solve many of these issues.
 
Solutions
