Digital Sensors and Sensor Sysstems


Abstract: With the increasing concern for reliability and quality of service, power grid in many countries is undergoing revolution towards a more distribute and flexible “Smart Grid”. In the development of envisioned smart grid, situational data awareness takes a fundamental role for a number of crucial advanced operations in the areas of sensing, communication, monitoring and decision making. It is very important that applications of smart grid should always be monitored. The wireless sensors in combination with actuators in the smart grid network would significantly advance the existing networks and could perform more comfortable application preferential control actions. The smart grid needs an efficient medium access approach based on the data prioritization and delay responsiveness. The wireless sensor communication within smart grid system is based on data rate, delay, latency, congestion and so on. The data is collected in a reliable and timely manner from the entire system and based on collected data the entire system is monitored for more advanced controlling schemes. This article surveys a sample of algorithms that can be adaptable for smart grid applications.


Keywords: Sensing, Communication, Smart grid, Data priority, Latency, Congestion, Wireless sensor networks.
