A Group-Based Protocol for Improving Energy Distribution in Smart Grids
New communication technologies must be provided in order to improve the energy distribution and save electric power. As far as the authors know, there is not any network protocol designed exclusively for this purpose. In this paper, they present the design and simulation of a group-based protocol to improve the energy distribution in smart grids. They will show the group-based architecture and the protocol operation. Finally, they will show some measurements taken from a test bench in order to show it operation and test its performance.
