Smart grid is a concept and also a way to mitigate the deficiencies in infrastructure and to counteract the effects of the growing demand for electricity. One of the ways to increase management efficiency in power network is to use the latest communication solutions, in which digital communication technologies and information and communication technologies are applied. These solutions provide reduced energy consumption, daily load leveling, and reduce losses. Also by automatically balancing energy, they allow for improving the efficiency of its transmission. Such solutions can directly manifest in increase in the efficiency of the entire power system.
