8  The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) is calling for: § 800,000 smart meters to be installed by December 31, 2007 and § The installation of smart meters for all Ontario customers by December 31, 2010. Ontario will be the first, full-scale smart meter system in North America. There are several smart meter pilots running in Ontario now. Hydro Ottawa has started conducting its pilots last spring.  Past students who worked on this are now with Hydro One

9  Distributed power generation and micro grids have drastically transformed the electric power grid management and control  Communications play major role in power system management  Design of a wireless communication scheme for power system control

10  A thief will first cut the telephone line before attempting a burglary  Most current systems will fail in this case  What about a system that uses wireless network for emergency contact when dead telephone line is detected  Brainstorm
