Smart grid technology is expected to revolutionize the ways that electric energy is produced and distributed through the power grid. It is much advanced in a sense that the consumers can choose the lowest electric fare from multiple power suppliers, and even sell back to the power company in the event of excess power (e.g., self-power generation). The power company is also not relying on the inaccurate power demand model, and instead, the exact amount of power can be calculated and distributed through two-way smart metering systems. Such technology is expected to save the energy consumption and bring about many benefits to the consumer market. Therefore, the aim of this study is to focus on the remote monitoring and control aspects of how electric power is demanded and consumed through the smart metering systems. A network of smart sensors will be constructed and necessary monitoring algorithms will be developed for that purpose. The outcome of this study will provide a venue for future development and practical ways of technology applications.
