The power flows from power utilities to consumers whereas if wireless sensor networks are added, then the real time price information will also flow from base station to consumers. If the consumer is aware of price of power in peak times, then consumer will act accordingly and regulate his consumption as per price information sent to him. - Geeta Yadav

Intelligent Coal Fired Thermal Power Plants – Next generation automation to accommodate high renewable...
The requirement for making coal fired stations intelligent arises from the beed for highly efficient plant operation and asset management on one hand and wide scale penetration of renewable energy (solar photovoltaic and wind) into the grid which results in rapid cycling of the thermal plants, on the other hand. Ramping up or down of thermal plants hitherto was through manual load setting or through the free governor mode of operation. With the entrance of rapidly varying renewable generation, the need for automatic load setting on the thermal plants through intelligent features arises... - M. Siddhartha Bhatt, N. Rajkumar

Power grid is a combination of various network elements and electrical components used to generate, transmit, distribute and supply power to end users of electricity. Complexity of power system has been growing tremendously over the last few decades, facing new challenges and targets during its operation. In order to overcome some of these major challenges, there is a definite need of automation which helps in automatically operating & controlling the power system under various situations of operating grid in day-day scenarios. The new era of smart grid in the 21st century has made automation and standardization really a need to operate grid under the dynamics of rapid load changes, making the system more time sensitive towards faults and failure modes. This research article presents analysis & overview on emerging technology and standards over past few years for smart grid automation, from generation to utilization making Indian power grids to operate in efficient manner and resilient to failure modes. - Balakrishna P & Swarup KS
