Emerging smart grid systems must be able to react quickly and predictably, adapting their operation to changing energy supply and demand, by controlling energy consuming and energy storage devices. An intrinsic problem with smart grids is that energy produced from in-house renewable sources is affected by fluctuating weather factors. The applications driving smart grids operation must rely on a solid communication network that is secure, highly scalable, and always available. Thus, any communication infrastructure for smart grids should support its potential of producing high quantities of real-time data, with the goal of reacting to state changes by actuating on devices in real-time, while providing Quality of Service (QoS).
