Title: Performance Evaluation of Time-Critcal Smart Grid Applications
Author(s): Frank Ball, Kashinath Basu
Reference: pp13-18
Keywords: Smart grid, time-crical applications, performance evaluation
Abstract: This paper focuses on the Firm Real-Time requirements of Time-Critical Wide Area Measurement and Control systems, that are expected to play a major role in future Smart Grids. It analyses the operation of these systems and identifies their communication traffic characteristics. It shows that these characteristics are significantly different to those of the current Near Real-Time Wide Area Measurement applications that provide visualization to support manual grid control. It then discusses the performance evaluation of these time critical systems and presents the first stage in a body of work aimed at developing models and techniques to carry out the performance evaluation process. It presents some preliminary results and outlines the direction for future work.
