Data for: Spectrum Management Using NI USRP and LabVIEW Framework for Smart Grid Application
In this project we, systematically trying to implement the idea of applying the next generation wireless technology, cognitive radio network, for the smart grid. System architecture, algorithms using Lab view NI. A grid test bed supporting both power flow and information flow is also implemented. The current centrally controlled power grid is undergoing a drastic change in order to deal with increasingly diversified challenges, including environment and infrastructure. The next generation power grid, known as the smart grid, will be realized with proactive usage of state-of the- art technologies in the areas of sensing, communications, control, computing, and information technology. In a smart power grid, an efficient and reliable communication architecture plays a crucial role in improving efficiency, sustainability, and stability. We first need to identify the fundamental challenges in the data communications for the smart grid and introduce the ongoing standardization effort in the industry. Smart grid can be visualized as an intelligent control system over sensors and communication platform.
