Abstract

The smart grid refers to the modernization of the power grid infrastructure with new technologies, enabling a more intelligently networked automated system with the goal of improving efficiency, reliability, and security, while providing more transparency and choices to electricity customers. A key technology being widely deployed on the consumption side of the grid is advanced metering infrastructure (AMI).
