The Smart Grid promotes a decentralized structure composed of generators, loads and distributed storage systems, which can operate autonomously or interconnected with each other. To make this a reality, it is necessary to combine power electronics, control, optimization methods, modeling and prediction, as well as communications.
For this reason, the integration of IoT technologies in the Smart Grid is just one more step in the search for greater energy efficiency and control of distributed resources, both at the electrical system and end user levels.
This seminar aims to give an overview of the Smart Grid, the elements that compose it up, the associated challenges and the role of IoT technologies.
