Scope and Objectives

 

SIGGSGC will focus on green smart grid communication. Developing the smart grid has become an urgent global priority, promising economic, environmental, and societal benefits. Information and communications technologies are at the core of the smart grid vision as they will empower today’s power grid with the capability of supporting two-way energy and information flow, isolating and restoring power outages more quickly, facilitating the integration of renewable energy sources into the grid and empowering the consumer with tools for optimizing their energy consumption.

 

 

The role of green smart grid communications includes not only the emission reduction and energy savings in smart grid products and services, but also enabling low carbon emissions in other industries, such as networks powered by the smart grid. This SIG will provide a forum for discussions of these recent developments and brings together industry and academia, engineers and researchers. The sub-areas of interests include, but not limited to, the following:

 

  • Green communication architectures and protocols for smart grids
  • Green metering infrastructure and smart meter technologies
  • Energy-efficient wide-area measurement and monitoring systems
  • Demand response management and load shaping
  • Green power line communications and physical layer design for smart grid communications
  • Integration of green and renewable (wind, solar, geothermal, etc.) energy sources
  • Smart grid cyber security, intrusion detection, false data injection attacks
  • Green sensor and actuator networks for smart grid
  • Dynamic pricing for networked constrained electricity markets and deregulation
  • Consumer privacy protection and load altering attacks
  • Vehicle-to-grid networks and interconnection of electric vehicles
  • Distributed fault detection and communication-based robust control of smart grid
  • Home-area energy automation networks, ZigBEE and home-plug solutions
  • Cognitive radio and applications in green smart grid communications
  • Time synchronization protocols for real-time green smart grid operation
  • Transmission switching and routing technologies for smart grid
  • Quality-of-Service and service differentiation on power networks
  • Green smart grid communications standardization, regulation, and interoperability
  • Test-beds and field trials for green smart grid communications and networking
