Abstract [en]

The world is facing many problems, including limited natural resources as well as environmental and energy problems. Climate change is a fact and has a negative impact on several areas. The development of society has created the need for secure and reliable energy systems. Therefore, energy production must keep up with recent developments while limiting negative environmental impact. Although the sharp increase of renewable energy sources connecting to electrical networks creates stress on energy systems. Maintaining the standard of living and achieving sustainable energy production requires a significant increase in the efficiency of energy use. In addition, the fact that there are presently an abundance of effective ways to store electricity means, and requires, that the production, as well as consumption, of power are kept in balance at all times. One of the basic operating forces regarding the Smart Grid is to balance energy consumption in the best way possible. The intelligent networks method is also advantageous for the environment as well as the consumers and producers of electricity. Although the broad sense of the Smart Grid includes the whole power system, ranging from power generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure to all categories of consumers (domestic, commercial and industrial). Smart Grids are also techniques that enable improved business continuity, increased connectivity and also helps to improve the efficiency of the corporate network, and indirectly reduce costs for consumers. Further measures in this area include power supply and system maintenance as well as information and communication technology. This study will provide knowledge and understanding in addition to contributing ideas on how to improve the wind power plants and the electricity grid through the use of Smart Grids. The analysis is also a way to convey an overall impression of how the Smart Grid works as well as summarizing the general requirements in order to achieve the best possible performance.
