How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Important changes in electricity consumption model require a communication network within the electrical grid, which is called the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) that can handle the increase of multiple and fluctuating production sites. Recently, we witness the convergence of this communication network and the electricity network into what...
Since decades, the power grid is Under going a tremendous evolution, toward what is called the Smart Grid. The grid is actually evolving from a centralized architecture to a decentralized one, taking into account all the unpredictable sources and consumption. The Advanced Metering Infrastructure is the network dedicated to the Smart Grid that allow...
Multiple heterogeneous communication technologies offer great opportunities in Smart grid network by using wire, wireless and optic fiber. Most of future smart meters will use Powerline Communication (PLC) technology in addition to one or more wireless interfaces to tackle the physical constraints and failure of the PLC network. When a smart meter...

The Smart Grid is based on Advanced Metering Infrastructure that mostly relies on Narrow Band Power Line Communication (PLC). In such network, using a single communication interface does not fulfill the primary requirement of 99.99% reading rates and coverage. Hybrid communication, by adding an additional radio interface, is a solution to provide t...
