Abstract: Smart grid has been replaced with traditional electrical power grid with its various technologies. In today’s world smart grid has emerged in as solution of increasing demand. They deliver energy at low cost and high quality as possible. The smart grid successfully uses of renewable energy resources and smart pricing technique in order to achieve energy efficiency. Information communication technology helps the grid in collection of data from various consumers. Basically advanced metering infrastructure comprises of collection, storing and using energy usage data are assumed to be the main tool of smart grid. So AMI transfers data from smart meter to the utility consumer. There is another tool like phasor measurement unit which measures the state of electric power grid. It increases the power transfer capacity. This review paper deals with the role of smart grid technology.
Keywords: Smart Grid, Advanced Metering Infrastructure, Load Forecasting, Demand Side Management.
