A Special issue on IEEE Smart Grid Standards
For a downloadable copy of this eNewsletter, please visit the IEEE Smart Grid Resource Center.
The smart grid, as with all engineering concepts, requires standardization to be widely understood on a common basis across the platforms and perspectives of all stakeholders. At the same time, standardization ensures that the directions of research on the relevant field may be more clearly specified. In this issue of the IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter, our authors guide you through the latest IEEE standards and standard working groups that are paving the way for the wider adoption of smart grid paradigms, equipment and applications. These articles reveal the value of developing standards and will hopefully motivate many in addressing working group leads for volunteering as active participants.
