With the recent developments in the technology today, there is a transition that is happening from the perspective of a predictable grid – these comes with one of the few sources of energy that is happening when we monitor some of the control points to come up with a new dynamic monitoring system and control points. With this in mind, there are three categories in which we can effectively change the motivation for this transition:
- the consumers’ low and decreased acceptance for power outages
- the onset of increase in importance of cybersecurity
- And the community’s genuine desire to have the employment of more renewable energy resources that can be used for electricity and consumption.
With this in mind, these changes will definitely require greater effort from the grid and its other supporting systems. One of the most successful models in the resilience of yet flexible system is the existence of the internet. The architects are designed to withstand the definite losses of some of the network segments while continuing the main functionalities.
As the community works for the global utility of the customers, we are now seeing many utilities that are starting to rethink and reshape the modern smart grid requirements. The emergence of this from the architectural construct is to meet the new divergent requirements while maintaining the most fundamental principles such as safety and reliability.
However, in similarity of the internet, some of the modular federation of the existing microgrids from the architectural models increases its resilience to come up with broad possibilities in any given situation. Even if there are segments of the electrical and information networks that are now being non-operational. With this in mind, some of the microgrids are determined to have interconnection sections included in the grid even if there are intended to act within the central coordination. But this enables the said function to function locally especially when there are reconfigurations happening even if there are isolations caused by certain events.
In some of the urban and suburban locations, reconfigurations are most common. However, while in rural, island or some developing areas. The existing sub systems may be isolated (electrically or from the central data communications)
One of the main elements included in this transition is both of the electrical network and its other supporting information of network are now started to become more modular than ever. Each component should be able to stand the reconfiguration or the potential loss that may occur between the central connections. The effort should be continued even the functionality in the safest manner or way.
As for the electrical grids that are becoming more diverse and dynamic, the support information and networks has now started to become even more mission-critical. During the isolation, some of the microgrids can now leverage the peer-to-peer communications and some of the distributed energy resources can now respond very quickly to ever-changing local conditions.
