QoS Requirements for the Smart Grid Communications System


Yong-Hee Jeon


Vol. 11  No. 3  pp. 86-94


A communications infrastructure is necessary in order to integrate numerous devices on the smart grid. Among the key technology areas, the implementation of integrated communications infrastructure needs to be performed with the highest priority to build the smart grid efficiently. To encounter possible disruptions of the grid system, a highly reliable, scalable, secure, robust and cost-effective communications infrastructure which supports QoS (Quality of Service) requirements is absolutely needed. In order to answer the question “What is the QoS requirements in the context of smart grid?”, this paper presents a survey result on the QoS requirements of the smart grid communications system .This paper examines the challenges that arise in defining QoS requirements in the smart grid communications system and explores potential solutions for implementing them.
