Renewable power feed to grid and power line communications (PLC) are two promising smart grid applications for power generation, transmission and distribution efficiently using existing power lines. It is forecasted that global energy demands will be doubled in 2030. Bangladesh is facing energy crisis like other developing countries. High energy demands and environmental concerns force the transformation of existing power grid into smart microgrid. This paper proposes a web-based platform on dynamic demand response and distributed generation including renewable power generation management approach in the context of smart microgrid for residential and industrial consumptions. The objectives of this research, web-enabled smart microgrid with renewable energy resources have played an important role to meet increasing energy demand in rural areas power system in Bangladesh. In this model, deployed PLC networks, data management system to integrate sensors, switchgears, transformers and other utility devices are used to interconnect smart homes to smart grids. Analytical results show the effectiveness of the proposed system to optimize residential renewable energy generation and web-enabled smart meters to improve electrical grid control and energy conservation.
