This book provides discussion on the fundaments of the Smart Grid concept and then describes the technologies that are required for its realisation. It allows the reader to engage with the immediate development of the power system and to take part in the debate over the future Smart Grid. The book opens with an overview on understanding the Smart Grid, and then is divided into three sections. Section 1 ('Information and Communications Technologies') covers communication standards for the Smart Grid. Section Two discusses sensing, measurement, control and automation.Smart metering and demand side participation are described in detail, before distribution automation and the distribution management system. The last chapter of this section covers advanced transmission system operation. Section Three looks at power electronic and advanced components. First of all the topic of power electronics in power demand and supply is presented. Enabling technologies and advanced components are described last of all, giving a balanced view of Smart Grids.

Tom Magrini is an information technology professional with over 30 years experience in the field. Tom has used Macs since 1984 and still fondly remembers his first Apple Macintosh computer with its 8 MHz Motorola 68000 processor, 9-inch 512 x 342 pixel black-and-white screen, 128 kB of RAM, and built-in 400 kB 3� inch floppy drive. He also worked on NeXT computers and the NeXTStep operating system, the forerunner to Apple's OS X. Tom's hobby is (you guessed it) working on computers particularly his Early 2011 MacBook Pro.During the work week, Tom leads a team of IT professionals who maintain two data centers and the network, telephony, platform, security, and client computing infrastructure for a large municipality. Tom has also taught programming, operating system, Cisco Networking Academy, and wireless networking courses as an adjunct professor at two colleges.When he isn't working on his MacBook Pro or hanging out with his dogs, Tom enjoys reading, movies, time with his family, and the the beautiful Arizona weather with its 300 days of sunshine.Please subscribe to Tom's Flipboard magazine, Catch the Wave: Mac OS X Mavericks, where he keeps you up-to-date on the latest OS X Mavericks and Apple Mac news, features, tips, and tricks.
