Smart Grid

Enabling Smart Grid Communications

This article will describe new techniques to implement a layer two network device over MV lines, using modulation techniques such as OFDM and Spread Spectrum.

Smart Grid functionality in distribution grids relies heavily on communications functions.  This is a challenge because many existing distribution grid facilities such as secondary substation lack communications links.  Sometimes there are existing fiber links, but most of the facilities are not connected. As a result of this, every time that Smartgrids are deployed in a secondary substation, communications means must be added in order to connect the premises to the utility’s network, and this network must be able to deliver the required data rate and latency requirements.
