The concept of smart grid arises in order to address the issues prevailing in present power grid. The process of embedding smartness into the grid requires a lot of research work. To make existing power grid smart, bidirectional data and power flow is essential. There are complications with communication architecture, selection of a feasible communication technology, economy and merging concepts of wireless sensor networks (WSN) into power grid. This paper deals with finding a communication technology for a five bus smart micro power grid simulator through simulation in ns2 for protocols like IEEE 802.11, IEEE 802.15.4 and a heterogeneous network with IP and WLAN through comparison and analysis of performance metrics.
