This event is aimed at introducing the advancements in Smart Grid technology. This involves active monitoring of the daily load by the grid. Power can be transferred in either direction, i.e., from utility to customers and vice versa using this technology. The identification of the nature of load used by the customers can also be monitored by using this technology. This enhances the load monitoring capability of the system which eventually helps in economic dispatch. The customers can also supply power to the utility and it can also be adjusted in their electricity bill. He also explained about smart grid project in Oman.
