A reliable communication network is required to enable two-way communication between energy producers, consumers and control centres for smart grid applications such as automatic smart meters, vehicle to grid, and demand-side management. To support these applications, we also need a fast communication infrastructure that can handle a high volume of data and provide near real-time data delivery. It is expected that the smart grid will improve intelligent energy distribution from the power grid to a large number of distributed energy sources, thus enabling more accurate monitoring of energy losses as well as more precise control and adaptation. This thesis has been written to study solutions for reliable, scalable and cost-effective communication networks for different smart grid applications based on the required latency, reliability, data packets size and reporting intervals.
