Smart Grid


The poster we create will be divided into four sections. 

  1. First, the poster will have an overview and basic information about what a smart grids are, as well as diagrams and images of existing smart grid technologies. Here we will also cover the importance of a smart grid.

  1. In the second sections we will list three major examples of smart grids, and their different technologies. This will include location and efficiency, with a focus on ranking the grids by efficiency and explaining why some may be better than others. 
  2. The third section will discuss the economic, and environmental impact of smart grids. We will include cost of implementation and overall economic efficiency in the long term. Finally, we will weigh different technologies by economic and environmental costs.
  3. Our final section will summarise the future of smart grids, including new research and implementations to improve efficiency. 

Group Plan

  1. Overview/what is a Smart Grid – Connor
    1. What is a smart grid?
      1. A smart grid is digital technology that allows a 2 way connection between the utility and its customers.  Smart grids digitally allow users to see the use on energy in real time to help the change the flow in real time to what is needed at the time. 
    2. What does it do?
      1. A smart grid makes energy transmission more effective.  Allows for quicker action when power goes out for any reason.  Lowers energy costs for all parties because they know exactly how much needs to be used and there is no overflow. Help incorporate large sustainable energy systems.  And better incorporates user sustainable energy or generator systems.

The Future Of Smart Grid Technologies 

By: Tyler Simon

The Future: 

Imagine a world where everyone shared the same source of energy but when someone does not use the energy provided by the source it was able to go to a place where the energy was needed, this is the idea of Smart Grids. Smart Grids are large scale electric networks but instead of everyone being independent they are all connected to each other and the connected to one source that puts out all of the energy. The first step into the future of smart grid technology has already taken place with the invention of smart meters in 2009. A smart meter is a device that goes on the outside of your house and it says information to the energy company showing how much energy you use and if there is any room for cutting back and saving energy. This was a huge step and on of the first places to incorporate these smart meters was Boulder Colorado.

The second step when creating the future would be combining transmission and distribution meaning taking all of the power lines, phone lines, and any other lines and putting them together getting roughly 10% more efficiency and cleaning up the area of all those ugly hanging lines. The end goal of smart grids it to eliminate the need for people to manage the way our energy is distributed amongst the community. The end goal according to (Michael Kanellos, Jeff St. John(2009, December 3)) Is to have a fully automated system to where if there is a fault in the system then the system will fix itself allowing the consumer to continue with their tasks. In 2016 the DOE asked for 3.4 billion to start the process of turning the United States into one big smart grid and by 2020 to have a return valued at 400 billion.     

Smart Grids connect cities and make them very energy efficient with all the residence of the city sharing any unused energy making them supper cities able to operate at max efficiency without losing any quality.

Smart cities will be all around the world and eventually all of the world will be connected through this smart grid. Everything will be connected from nuclear power plants and large office buildings to suburbs and street lights all thanks to the technology of smart grids.

The future of smart grid technology is right around the corner. This change will give power to 3rd world countries and improve the efficiency of  how our energy is shared amongst the community and the efficiency at which it is produced.

This discussion paper is satisfactory and I will accept it "as is." There are changes that need to be made, but I will make them myself rather than requesting revisions and waiting hours for the completed work.
