Smart grid is a digitalized system that consists of monitoring, controlling and analyzing in bidirectional power flow among all types of generating units like Thermal power station, hydropower generation, solar power plant, nuclear power station, etc. and end-use consumers. It is used to monitor and control the power flow automatically, through a master station with the help of technology. Smart grid technology enables the controlling of components of the power system in generation, transmission, distribution system. It enables monitoring and controlling the power consumption at consumers' premises by the automation system and provides proper control in the distribution system. It also analyzes the power consumption so that it provides proper control in the generation system and transmission automatically.
To make a highly efficient, low-cost power flow system on the power system, we can introduce renewable energy with the grid system through a smart grid system. As solar energy is a popular energy source then we can use solar energy in a smart grid system. In this system, the excess generation power from the solar panel will automatically dispatch to a common grid system through a digitally monitoring and controlling system through the IoT. This advanced system introduced in the application of a smart grid.
