In this chapter, the compositions of the Smart Grid and the basis on which such compositions are defined have been discussed. This include (i) composition of Smart Grid based on standards adaptation, (ii) composition of Smart Grid based on technical components' perspective, (iii) composition of Smart Grid based on technical perspective, and (iv) composition of Smart Grid based on conceptual perspective. They are covered under Sections 3.2.1, 3.2.2, 3.2.3, and 3.2.4 respectively. Identification of the basic components of the Smart Grid that are currently in use are then covered under Section 3.3.1. It has been recognized that new components are continued to be developed as the Smart Grid evolves. Finally, a basic technical infrastructure of the Smart Grid has been covered under Section 3.3.2. Such infrastructure consists basically of (i) an electrical power system, (ii) communication and information system, (iii) intelligent protection, automation, and distributed control system, and (iv) marketing system.
