Happy New Year
The mist seems to have been lifted on the concept of smart grid.
Smart grid has to deliver reasonable cost energy consisting of host of energy sources at all times to all consumers and also apply brakes on consumption if and when severe conditions occur.
Now four Pyramids that control this process are
Distribution and utilization
These pyramids are all three level ones and interact with each other at all levels, horizontally and internally vertically
There are two more one Political and the other economic which essentially concern human decisions, making the power system cybernatic
No smart grid is really possibile without designing effecient operation of these pyramids. Hence it is clear smart grid is just not smart metering or its assiciated technologies but a far bigger enterprise.Having defined the base objective of Smart grid it is easier to draw the road map to achieve it
It is now necessary to elaborate these pyramids
