Explore a thorough treatment of the foundations of smart grid sensing, communication, computation, and control
As electric power systems undergo a transformative upgrade with the integration of advanced technologies to enable the smarter electric grid, professionals who work in the area require a new understanding of the evolving complexity of the grid.
Cyber Infrastructure for the Smart Electric Grid delivers a comprehensive overview of the fundamental principles of smart grid operation and control, smart grid technologies, including sensors, communication networks, computation, data management, and cyber security, and the interdependencies between the component technologies on which a smart grid’s security depends. The book offers readers the opportunity to critically analyze the smart grid infrastructure needed to sense, communicate, compute, and control in a secure way.
Readers of the book will be able to apply the interdisciplinary principles they’ve learned in the book to design and build secure smart grid infrastructure. Readers will also benefit from the inclusion of:
- A thorough introduction to the key skills required by engineers to manage the evolving complexity of the electric grid
- An exploration of the interdependencies of smart grid infrastructure required to sense, communicate, compute, control, and manage data securely
- Software modules in .exe format for demonstrations and exercises
- An examination of the fundamental principles of smart grid operation and control
Perfect for professionals working in the electric utility industries at electric utilities, vendors, and the national labs, Cyber Infrastructure for the Smart Electric Grid will also earn a place in the libraries of senior undergraduate and graduate students studying electrical engineering and smart grids.
