One of the most concerning problems in Smart Grids is the lack of a proper data acquisition system with high security, desired flexibility and required network capacity. These demands prove the vital role of communications in conjunction with smart girds. In this paper, Wireless Sensor Networks are proposed as a compatible choice for satisfying these requirements. However, Wireless Sensor Networks utilized for smart grids necessitate some specifications. We will study these specifications and suggest viable manipulations in the architecture of sensor nodes and network topology. Furthermore, after analyzing the properties of various communication systems, an appropriate choice is included in the design of WSN. With proposed specifications, computer simulations are provided to evaluate the suggested method and emphasis the satisfaction of demands.
