Migration of the IT Technologies to the Smart Grids

L. Cepa, Z. Kocur, Z. Muller


This paper describes the migration of the traditional IT technologies to the Industrial Control Networks for Power Grids (ICNPG), characteristics of the typical ICNPG network and the differences between them and ICT network. We define the availability and reliability of the ICT networks and describe the current trends of the IT technologies in the ICNPG network with regarding its use in the Smart Grids. Finally, we describe the Smart Grid technology and summarize the availability and reliability of the ICNPG networks from technical studies. The comparison of ICNPG and ICT networks show that the utilization rate of ICT technologies must be determined in the Smart Grids with regard to the required availability and reliability. Ill. 1, bibl. 7, tabl. 2 (in English; abstracts in English and Lithuanian).
