SCOPE AND MOTIVATIONTo address the global concerns on the surging power demand and carbon emissions, the future smart power grid will integrate numerous distributed elements, such as renewable generators, micro power grids, energy storage units, advanced metering devices, and electric vehicle users. Effective and reliable information and communication technology (ICT) solutions play a vital role to ensure efficient two-way flows of information and power between these distributed entities. Nowadays, wireless networks with wide-area to local coverages have been widely used to monitor and communicate the real-time operating conditions of the power system. Meanwhile, some recently emerged machine type communications and vehicle-to-grid/grid-to-vehicle communications are promising to significantly improve the power grid automation. However, the heterogeneous components in the smart grid and the distinct characteristics of power system makes ICT solutions hard to accommodate the different communication requirements on bandwidth, latency, reliability and security. There are still many challenging problems concerning the proper ICT architecture and signal processing techniques applied to smart grid. In many cases, a good design for smart grid system requires interdisciplinary considerations of control, power electronics, communication, and computing techniques.
