Abstract : Wired and wireless communication technologies are the enablers of the future smart grid communication. Communication network and choice of communication technology are subject to technical, economic, and legal considerations. In this work, a simulation-based analysis of different communication technologies for real-time monitoring of smart microgrid is carried out. A hardware implementation of the communication network with the communication technologies selected from the analysis is successfully carried out on a smart microgrid emulator. It is observed that a heterogeneous network of wired LAN forming the high-speed backbone network supported by a WLAN for last mile connectivity is the most proper choice for smart grid applications.
