2 POWERING TODAY. EMPOWERING TOMORROW. ® May 2008 Doc.:IEEE wng0 George Cosio and Phil Slack, FPL 2 Submitted: May 9 th, 2008 SmartGrid Communications IEEE May 12 th, 2008

3 May 2008 Doc.:IEEE wng0 George Cosio and Phil Slack, FPL 3 Submitted: May 9 th, 2008 Agenda FPL Overview SmartGrid Overview Automated Metering Initiatives Technology Challenges What Are The Requirements? Why Standardization

4 May 2008 Doc.:IEEE wng0 George Cosio and Phil Slack, FPL 4 Submitted: May 9 th, 2008 Largest FL Utility (4.6 million Customer accounts) 26,000 sq. miles of service territory Reliability much better than national average Investing to maintain reliability and meet growth Committed to meeting the changing needs of our customers Florida is one of the fastest growing states Florida Power & Light

5 May 2008 Doc.:IEEE wng0 George Cosio and Phil Slack, FPL 5 Submitted: May 9 th, 2008 Smart Grid The term Smart power grid may best be defined as bringing the power of broadband communications and advanced computing to the grid itself to upgrade the current electric power grid so that it can operate more efficiently, reliably and safely. -Wikipedia, SmartGrid / Smart Power Grid, December 2007 Meter Reading Power Quality Revenue Protection Demand Side Management Distributed Generation Distribution Automation Telemetry Power Outage and Restoration Command and Control Communications Business Process Information Load Profile Efficiency SmartGrid begins with Automated Meter Reading Analytics

6 May 2008 Doc.:IEEE wng0 George Cosio and Phil Slack, FPL 6 Submitted: May 9 th, Integrate traditional electrical infrastructure with advanced technology and analytics to deliver a real time, end-to-end, and predictive view of the business to improve grid performance, drive efficiencies, and enable new customer services 2.Using shared information, move from ‘respond and react’ to ‘predict and shape’ Industry View: What Constitutes Smart Grid PredictivePredictive Analytics, Modeling and Forecasting Analytics (i.e.. Focus on Future Performance) CommonReal Time and Historical Grid Data Data (e.g. Secure, Easy to Access, Easy to Consume, Available Across Business Areas) Operational Operational, Analytical, and Business Systems Systems (e.g. Real Time Monitoring, Unit Commitment, DMS, Work Management, LMS, Call Center) Communications Connect Remote Grid Hardware Infrastructure (e.g. Wired, Wireless, Cellular, WiMax, Mesh, ZigBee) “Smart” SensorsMeasure & Control & Controls (e.g. Smart Meters, Auto Feeder Switches, Current/Volt Sensors, In-Home Controls) Analyze. Measure Control End-to-End Business View

7 May 2008 Doc.:IEEE wng0 George Cosio and Phil Slack, FPL 7 Submitted: May 9 th, 2008 Automated Metering Initiatives Reviewed PLC and RF based network solutions ~34,000 PLC endpoints ~17,000 network devices (star topology) Reviewing 900MHz unlicensed FHSS RF Mesh Deployed 50,000 devices in 2007 Deploy 50,000 additional devices by 06/2008

9 May 2008 Doc.:IEEE wng0 George Cosio and Phil Slack, FPL 9 Submitted: May 9 th, 2008 Technology Challenges Broad architectural differences between technologies/vendor Licensed vs. unlicensed spectrum FHSS vs. DSSS Different topologies Costly deployment, engineering and operations Lack of consistent deployment practices Complex and costly integration with utility equipment Broad diversity of deployment scenarios Solution must adapt to changes in the environment No interoperability between different solutions Lack of economies of scale Lack of support for utility business applications

10 May 2008 Doc.:IEEE wng0 George Cosio and Phil Slack, FPL 10 Submitted: May 9 th, 2008 What are the requirements? Technical Reliable, secure, and cost effective Neighborhood Area Network Range varies from feet to 10 miles Latency ~10 seconds 20+ year life span Flexible topology Resilient design enables recovery from communication outages Remote upgrade and manageability Interface with Distribution equipment (meters, switches, etc.) Bandwidth requirement kbps SmartGrid Self Healing Motivates and includes end user Resists attack Power Quality for the 21st Century Accommodates distributed generation Enable markets Optimizes assets and operates efficiently

11 May 2008 Doc.:IEEE wng0 George Cosio and Phil Slack, FPL 11 Submitted: May 9 th, 2008 Why Standards? Simplify vendor and application integration Minimize technology and vendor risk Promotes competition and innovation Increases economies of scale Reduces complexity Promote design consistency

12 May 2008 Doc.:IEEE wng0 George Cosio and Phil Slack, FPL 12 Submitted: May 9 th, 2008 Key Take Aways SmartGrid demands cost effective communication Communication architecture horizontally scalable to millions of devices Vendor independence Application does not require broadband Solution must be flexible and very resilient Standardization paves the way for SmartGrid!
