Synchronisation Challenges Within Future Smart Grid Infrastructure

Synchronisation of computer systems is a challenging task when the systems communicate across a dynamic and variable latency network but becomes especially challenging when the network contains wireless communication links. The success of the evolving smart grid project will depend hugely on Information and Communication Technologies to revolutionise the traditional power grid and will place various demands on current synchronisation techniques. Utilisation of wireless communication systems within the smart grid infrastructure seems inevitable, thus, if the project is to reach its full potential then some of the shortfalls of current synchronisation techniques over wireless must be remedied.
