low-voltage to medium-voltage, and through transformer medium-voltage to low-voltage powerlines in both urban and long distance rural communications. H. Cyber Security IEC 62351 : IEC 62351 defines cyber security for the com- munication protocols defined by the previous four sets. Se- curity is a major concern with smart grids, which are espe- cially vulnerable to attack because of the two-way commu- nication between devices and the utility grid. I. Electric Vehicles SAE J2293 : This standard was developed by the Hybrid Committee that is a part of SAE international and provides requirements for Electric Vehicles (EV) and Electric Ve- hicle Supply Equipment (EVSE). It standardizes the elec- trical energy transfer from electric utility to EVs. SAE J2836 : SAE J2836 standard supports use cases for communication between plug-in electric vehicles and the power grid for energy transfer and other applications. SAE J2847 : SAE J2847 supports communication mes- sages between PEVs and grid components. V. C ONCLUSION The smart grid has been conceived as an evolution of elec- tric power systems due to the increasing diffusion of distributed generation by renewable sources, but with the additional aim to enhance efficiency, reliability, and safety of the existing power grid. To this end, remote and timely information gathering about equipment failures, capacity limitations, and natural accidents is extremely critical for ensuring proactive and real-time and reli- able diagnosis of possible failures in the smart grid. This makes cost-effective remote sensing technologies vital for safe, seam- less, and efficient power delivery in the smart grid. In this paper, communications technologies and requirements for smart grids have been discussed. The QoS mechanism is in- troduced and standards are presented. Clearly, there are many important open research issues for the realization of smart grid communications and applications. Future work includes dis- cussion of grid characteristics, architectures, key players, pilot projects, applications, and research challenges on ICT issues, in order to give a complete overview on the subject.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
