vices are the leading features of HomePlug Green PHY specification. PRIME : PRIME is an open, global powerline standard that provides multivendor interoperability and welcomes sev- eral entities to its body. Advanced Digital Design, CUR- RENT Group, Landis+Gyr, STMicroelectronics, uSyscom and ZIV Medida are some of the current companies that have extensive experience in PLC technology and smart metering. G3-PLC : G3-PLC is a powerline communications speci- fication launched by ERDF and Maxim that aims to pro- vide interoperability, cyber security and robustness and reduce infrastructure costs in smart grid implementations worldwide. E. Home Area Network Device Communication Measurement and Control U-SNAP : There have been a variety of incompatible stan- dards for HAN. This lack of standardization in HAN Utility has driven major AMI suppliers and product manufacturers to develop a solution, namely Utility Smart Network Ac- cess Port (U-SNAP). The main requirement is the exis- tence of an interface to connect any type of product to a HAN. U-SNAP basically enables the standardization of a connector and serial interface and identifies the hardware interface, physical dimensions, data transfer, message con- tents and protocol specifics for HAN devices to provide many communication protocols to connect HAN devices to smart meters. IEEE P1901 : The IEEE P1901 Working Group (WG) under the sponsorship of the IEEE Communications So- ciety developed the IEEE P1901 standard for high-speed powerline communications to meet in-home multimedia, utility and smart grid application requirements [36]. Access control and physical layer specifications for broad- band over powerline networks are analyzed in detail and the access system with cell structure is defined by the IEEE P1901 Working Group [36]. The IEEE P1901 standard has an important effect on communications technology by integrating powerline communications into wireless networks with extensive features, such as high-speed, walls-penetration, etc. [37]. Z-Wave : Z-Wave is an alternative solution to ZigBee that handles the interference with 802.11/b/g since it operates in the 800 MHz range [20]. Z-Wave is not an open stan- dard and developed by The Z-Wave Alliance, an interna- tional consortium of manufacturers. The simple, modular and low-cost features make Z-Wave one of the leading wireless technologies in home automation. Z-Wave can be easily embedded to consumer electronic appliances, such as lighting, remote control, security systems that require low-bandwidth data operations. F. Application-Level Energy Management Systems IEC 61970 and IEC 61968 : Two defined standards, i.e., IEC 61970 and IEC 61969, provide what is called a Common Information Model (CIM), which is neces- sary for exchanging data between devices and networks.

    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.
