Tim Brown, WireIE’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO) has just completed a white paper entitled, “Practical Considerations for Smart Grid”.
It is our hope this white paper reaches as many readers as possible, as it is the first of its kind to introduce next generation network and Operation Support System approaches to Smart Grid network solutions.
Any comments or feedback you may have are welcomed and encouraged here on the Whiteboard.
Smart Grid will facilitate conservation across the entire electrical energy supply chain. Up to this point, however, little has been written as to how this will actually be achieved. The intent of this paper is to discuss where the opportunities for conservation in the supply chain are. From there a practical Smart Grid architecture based on proven telecom network Operation Support Systems is discussed. The benefits of using IP (Internet Protocol) as a single standard to support the Smart Grid network are then expounded upon.
