In this context, the term “Smart Transmission Grid”is a collective term that includes the physical network as well as the controls and devices supporting the function of the physical network [2]. This makes the work related to STG fall in line with the ongoing Smart Grid initiative. This chapter will be dedicated to discuss research activities currently underway, particularly in Europe and the USA, aiming at the development of STG. STG is considered as an integrated system that consists of three interactive smart components. These are smart control centers, smart transmission networks, and smart substations [2].
