This project addressed the role of Smart Meters in the development and operation of the electric power system.
Demand Side Participation through smart meters could contribute to radically lower CO2 emissions and reduced requirements for investment in assets. Through the development of an experimental rig, grid control capability of smart meters will be demonstrated and the efficacy of providing network operators with primary frequency response from domestic appliances and voltage control will be evaluated. The project also evaluated the performance of smart meters within a home area network and assess communication system integration whilst addressing security and privacy issues.
