Moving Toward A Smarter Electric Grid 2010
At Smart Grid Communications Architecture: Requirements, Implementations, and Future Directions, you will learn about the current state of the art in Smart Grid data communication implementations, standards, and products. This ½ -day session in the on-going Moving Toward a Smarter Electric Grid series of symposia will cover:
- What information utilities require from the Smart Grid and why
- Current data communication architectures with emphasis on transmission media, interoperability, and security standards
- What products companies are currently marketing to support utility requirements and Smart Grid standards What researchers predict about the future of communication requirements, standards, and equipment as our understanding of the Smart Grid evolves.
- Participants will have the opportunity to listen to, and meet with leaders in Smart Grid technologies, and will gain a deeper insight into the basic ideas, technical challenges, and specifically to potential areas where they might be able to make personal contributions.
