Service Oriented Cloud Architecture for Improved Performance of Smart Grid Applications
An effective and flexible computational platform is needed for the data coordination and processing associated with real time operational and application services in smart grid. A server environment where multiple applications are hosted by a common pool of virtualized server resources demands an open source structure for ensuring operational flexibility. In this paper, open source architecture is proposed for real time services which involve data coordination and processing. The architecture enables secure and reliable exchange of information and transactions with users over the internet to support various services.
