How Smart is a Smart Grid? By: Dr Gareth Evans - Updated: 29 Sep 2015| *Discuss The world has become an increasingly ‘smart’ place, with in-built intelligence and enhanced functionality now coming as standard features in everything from bombs to phones – and now it seems the race is on to smarten up the grid too, and change the way we get our electricity forever.

How Smart is a Smart Grid?

It promises to bring something for everyone – big energy savings for consumers, more efficient use of existing capacity, a reduced risk of power outages, better integration for renewables and an incentive for small scale domestic generation. So what is a Smart Grid – and just how ‘smart’ is it? Digital enables rapid response to demand Like just about everything else these days, at its heart, it’s digital. At its simplest, that allows a faster response to rising demand, but the real benefits go further than that. Balancing the load on the grid Side-stepping standby Automated analysis and problem solving Cutting costs for consumers Coming Soon!

The proving points for this application of its underlying software are coming through its work with original utility partner Snohomish PUD, as well as in Austin Energy’s solar-storage integration work under its $4.3 million SHINES grant from the Department of Energy’s SunShot program. AutoGrid Systems Managing the complexities of the grid edge requires managing an immense amount of data, coming in a multiplicity of formats and time signatures, from a wide variety of distributed energy resources.

׳אפולו׳ הוא גוף תאורה חכם שיכלול בתוכו גם מצלמה, WiFi, מערכת שליטה וחיישנים פרט לתאורת רחוב סטנדרטית מקור: אפולו, צילום מסך לפי נתוני משרד התשתיות, עד שנת 2030 האוכלוסייה בערי העולם צפויה לגדול לכ-5 מיליארד בני אדם. במטרה לענות על הצרכים המשתנים והגדלים של האוכלוסייה העירונית, מדינות ורשויות מקומיות ברחבי העולם צריכות לחשוב על דרכים חדשות כיצד לשפר את יעילות התשתיות הקיימות (ראו ערך כבישי ישראל במהלך החורף), ואחת הדרכים לעשות זאת היא על ידי חיבורן לטכנולוגיות מתקדמות ולמה שמכונה ״האינטרנט של הדברים״ (IoT). היא אמנם לא רשות, אך חברת ״געש תאורה״ הישראלית מציגה פיתוח די מעניין שמטרתו לשדרג תשתית קיימת שתופסת לא מעט שטח נדל״ני יקר ערך.

ערך מוסף כל גוף תאורה הינו יחידת בקרה עצמאית (Stand alone) הנשלטת בטכנולוגית WiFi, כך שלא נדרש חיבור למערכת בקרה מרכזית או בבניית תשתית תקשורת ייעודית כדי לשלוט בתאורה. תגיות לכתבה: Power and gas grids. Superconductors, laser technology and new gas holders: from more than 100 years of experience, RWE knows that, to sustainably underpin dependable, economic and environmentally-friendly power and gas supplies, you need investment in new technologies as well as steady process improvements.

Besides ongoing investment that ensures the high quality of the complex infrastructure of cables, pipelines and many more net components, our engineers today already pinpointedly research and develop new processes and materials to enable us to go on doing justice to our economic and ecological aspirations. Innovations in detail Thanks to ongoing swaps of experience at international level – including joint projects with other big grid operators – and projects of our own, RWE is strengthening its innovative power and building up competence. At the same time, research results can also give birth to new business fields. Potential innovations are often in the detail.
