Smart Grid and its future perspectives in Australia

Haidar, Ahmed M. A. and Muttaqi, Kashem and Sutanto, Danny (2015) Smart Grid and its future perspectives in Australia. Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, 51. pp. 1375-1389. ISSN 1364-0321


The Smart Grid (SG) is an emerging concept, which is in a testing phase in many countries. It is a relatively new perception that integrates electricity and communication on power system networks, which enable SG applications, mainly for the use of Renewable Energy Sources (RES). This paper presents a review of the existing studies on SG systems, the use of SG technologies and the modeling techniques for SG available in the literature. Furthermore, the paper focuses on SG features when connected at a distribution grid and its active distribution management capability. It also identifies the current practice as provided in technical standards and potential industry investments that can facilitate a pathway towards SG development in Australia. The paper also has highlighted the possible areas of research that would be required to implement practical SG facilities.
