Smart grid is the term used to describe the next generation power grid in which the management of electricity distribution is enhanced by advanced two-way communications, so that it monitors, protects, and takes decisions automatically to optimize the operation of its interconnected elements. The smart grid is made possible by combining two-way communications and persistent computing capabilities, to enhance control, efficiency, reliability, and safety. Using two-way digital technologies, a smart grid can transport electricity between suppliers and consumers. Such technology allows consumers to save energy, reduce cost and increase their smart appliances’ efficiency, reliability and transparency. Software Defined Radio (SDR) is a promising technology, it can support the smart grid so that it can provide control, protection and automatic optimization to operate its interconnected elements effectively and efficiently. This paper proposes the use of Software Defined Radio (SDR) for Partial Discharge (PD) detection and localization at the user end in the smart grid.
