Labs: Top Design Considerations for Low-Power Metering
As green energy management becomes a global
imperative, the idea of implementing intelligent systems and
wireless technology to more efficiently use energy and other
natural resources has become a pervasive reality. It began with a
relatively simple idea. If you add embedded intelligence and a
communications link to a traditional metering device, you have the
ability to remotely access the data that the smart meter has
Protecting the Electric Grid in a Dangerous World
the widespread use of standard computing platforms and systems
linked to the internet exposes the electric grid to new risks of
internal and external compromise and potential disruption. To
protect against these attacks, the Federal Energy Regulatory
Commission (FERC) has mandated sweeping security programs. The
North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical
Information Protection (NERC CIP) cyber security standards have
established comprehensive requirements that will be phased in over
the next several years.
