|Abstract: ||This paper develops an energy management system with integration of smart meters for electricity consumers in a smart grid context. The integration of two types of smart meters (SM) are developed: i) consumer owned SM and ii) distributor owned SM. The consumer owned SM runs over a wireless platform - ZigBee protocol and the distributor owned SM uses the wired environment - ModBus protocol. The SM are connected to a SCADA system (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) that supervises a network of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC). The SCADA system/ PLC network integrates different types of information coming from the several technologies present in modern buildings.
The developed control strategy implements an hierarchical cascade controller where inner loops are performed by local PLCs, and the outer loop is managed by a centralized SCADA system, which interacts with the entire local PLC network.
In order to implement advanced controllers, a communication channel was developed to allow the communication between the SCADA system and the MATLAB software.|
