One of the most important missions of Smart Grid is to improve system efficiency through effective execution of Time of Use (TOU) Demand Response (DR) programs and to provide a link between consumers and electricity market in order to provide a smoother load curve. On the other hand, realization of Smart Grid in a system would be very costly. In this situation, identifying the most influential buses in order to implement the infrastructures of Smart Grid is of highest importance. In this paper, IEEE 57 bus test system has been chosen to clarify the procedure used for selecting buses in order to implement Smart Grid. Buses have been selected using the Generation Shift Factor (GSF) method and the influence of Smart Grid has been simulated using DR model on whole system's load curve.
