Smart Grid Architecture

ecomagination Smart Home
The Future Home
System Architecture -with Future Additions
Open Standard Based Architecture
Open Infrastructure Characteristics
Shareability – economies of scale, minimize duplication
Ubiquity – readily utilize infrastructure, anywhere
Integrity – high level of manageability and reliability
Ease of use – logical and consistent rules to use infrastructure
Cost effectiveness – value consistent with cost
Standards -define how basic elements interrelate
Openness -supports multiple uses & vendors, not proprietary
Secure -system must be protected
Scalable -low or high density areas, phased implementation
