Power Industry is the backbone of any economy. With fast growing energy requirements an efficient and intelligent transmission and distribution infrastructure is the need of the day.

In the recent times power industry has witnessed several changes. With the increase in usage of renewable energy for power generation and the dynamic behaviour of the peak loads further challenges are being faced by the transmission and distribution network.

To address the requirements of intelligent distribution network, Smart grid initiative from Government of India is a welcome step. The Smart Grid (Intelligent transmission and Distribution) is "An automated, widely distributed energy delivery network characterised by a two-way flow of electricity and information, capable of monitoring and responding to changes in everything from power plants to customer preferences to individual appliances."

Smart grid can be better defined by its features:

1) Fully automated power delivery network that monitors and controls electricity flows

2) Two-way flows of electricity and information between the power plant and the appliance, and all points in between

3) Lowered carbon footprint and reduced emissions, increased access to renewable energy resources (like solar and wind)

4) Use of digital technology to save energy, reduce cost and increase reliability, and

5) Reduced disruptions, improved efficiency and better asset utilisation.
