Brochure title:
Framework for Network Co-Simulation: Ready to Meet New Power Grid Challenges
Description:
Throughout the nation’s power grid, millions of sensors constantly collect and transmit information about grid operations. These devices and the information transmitted could lead to technological advances in the design, development, and operation of the future power grid ecosystem. To fulfill the promise of an integrated future power grid, utilities and grid operators need to understand the requirements of smart grid applications, and whether new communication networks are needed to fully enable their efficiency and resiliency potential. Yet compared to current resources, smart grid technologies and concepts, such as demand response and advanced metering infrastructure, require relatively intensive data transfer and considerable communication resources. Until now, capable design tools able to simulate power and communication systems in a single environment have not been available.
