NIST, in its Conceptual Model for the Smart Grid, has divided the entire Smart Grid operations into seven subdomains. The Customer Domain plays an important role in Demand Response (DR) programs. To take part in DR programs, the Customer domain should be equipped with a Home Area Network. Communications within the Home Area Network should be accomp...

Smart Grid is divided into seven sub domains by NIST. The customer domain refers to the end users of electricity. In addition to the traditional role of consumer, they will also participate in generation as well as storage of energy. They would respond to signals coming from the grid and reduce or increase consumption and/or generation accordingly....

Communication technologies are a fundamental building block of a smart grid. Most of the smart grid technologies are based on dedicated communication infrastructure. However, Need for dedicated communication network reduces interoperability and increases the cost of implementing a smart grid. In this project we evaluate the capabilities of well established public data networks like HSDPA, GPRS, etc. and local area data networks like WiFi, Ethernet, etc. to implement smart grid functions.
