Smart Grid: IEEE releases updated guidelines, recommendations

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers has released an updated Smart Grid Research portfolio of new resources for smart grid infrastructure and deployments.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has released an updated Smart Grid Research portfolio of new resources for smart grid infrastructure and deployments. The guide offers reports and roadmaps for smart grid communication, power and computing as well as control systems.

Included in the new information is the "IEEE Global Consumer Socialization of Smart Grid" report that features consumer reviews on smart electrical grids and the use of renewable energy sources. The "IEEE Cyber Security Smart Grid" is included in guidelines as well and identifies cybersecurity vulnerabilities, giving companies advice on how to prevent these risks.

These guidelines and recommendations will prove useful as more utilities update their electrical grids. Experts say updating to smart grids is becoming a growing necessity as more of the nation's power grid is becoming more vulnerable as it ages and faces new threats of terrorist activity and natural disasters, Emergency Management reported.

"The solution deals with policy and technology and we can do it," said Massoud Amin, director of the Technological Leadership Institute and professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Minnesota. "We need to. We can and we must do this if we are going to remain an economic superpower. Bottom line is that this is not something to pass on to the next generation."
