SmartGrid App Harnesses Innovation


August 16, 2013

News of the novel idea on new smart grid app can lead to convergence and performance standards that cross platforms addressing high and low voltage systems. The opportunity is to provide the synthesis for smart-energy and smart-functionality. The “Draft Standard For SmartGrid Apps Clears Initial IEEE Ballot” identifies this new standard for network capability.

Light Reading India reported the “Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the foremost standards organization, has announced the success of the first sponsor ballot for IEEE P1901.2 “Draft Standard for Low-Frequency (less than 500kHz) Narrowband Power-Line Communications (PLC) for SmartGrid Applications.” Once approved, the standard is intended to specify a new generation of PLC technology for transmission frequencies of less than 500kHz and address a host of existing and emerging smart-grid applications.

The grid not yet as smart as needed is placing more emphasis on the technological horizon that amplies Apps and manages data.

It is stated that the “IEEE P1901.2 is built on a solid foundation of requirements developed by a diverse team of experts that represents all players in the value chain delivering solutions to the smart grid industry,” said Oleg Logvinov, Vice Chair of IEEE Low-Frequency Narrowband Power-Line Communications Working Group and Director of Special Assignments, Industrial and Power Conversion Division, STMicroelectronics

This intentional multidisciplinary teams are what will lead to higher order decision-making by converging minds and knowledge to solve complex problems that one discipline cannot in today’s complexity. The ability to close gaps on infrastructural issues will come out the confluence of minds that drive down processes and opportunities.

This standard also bridges the gap of resilience-performance-cost, empowering a large value-added class of applications from home energy-management systems to smart metering and smart energy.”

The work is “comprised of three foundational components—physical/medium access (PHY/MAC) layer, coexistence and electromagnetic-compatibility (EMC) requirements—IEEE P1901.2 supports the balanced and efficient use of the PLC channel by all classes of low-frequency and narrowband devices. The draft standard helps define detailed mechanisms for coexistence among standard technologies operating in the same frequency band.”

In addition, the draft standard addresses low-frequency, narrowband PLC over low-voltage lines of less than 1000V between transformer and meter, through transformer low-voltage to medium-voltage (1000V up to 72kV) and through transformer medium-voltage to low-voltage power lines in both urban and in long-distance (multi-kilometer) rural communications. IEEE P1901.2 is also designed to support lighting and solar-panel PLC.”
