Evolving wireless cellular systems for smart grid communications

Project summary

The project "Evolving wireless cellular systems for smart grid communications" concentrates on the use of wireless cellular technologies in Wide Area and Field Area Networking (WAN/FAN) domains of the future smart grid. The main hypothesis is that the cellular technologies are mature and ubiquitous, such that they can serve as a basis to create communication solutions for smart grid services in WAN/FAN. Yet, the main challenge is that cellular technologies are optimized for human-centered traffic and do not provide the principal connectivity features required for the smart grid services, which are real-time low-latency connections, high reliability of critical connections and handling of a large number of simultaneous connections. The project objective is to remove these fundamental barriers by devising innovative principles and methods to evolve the cellular networks towards cost-effective support of the smart grid communications in WAN/FANs.

The project is funded by the Danish Council for Independent Research, grant ID: DFF – 4005-00281.

Project start date: April 1st, 2014.
Project duration: 36 months.
