Network Coding' is the proven technology used in internet data transfer and satellite communications, which can use the available bandwidth to the maximum as well as ensure data security. In this paper, the concepts of Network Coding is implemented and tested for Smart Grid applications using the wireless protocols namely Zigbee, Bluetooth and Wifi. The performance parameters were studied for each protocol by transmitting multiple data packets stored in a database.
Further, an algorithm is developed to run at the destination end which determines, from the data it has received, whether the load demand exceeds the generation or there is a surplus of generated power available. This was demonstrated using Wi-Fi protocol.
