Protecting the distribution grid in a smart and cost-effective way can be a major challenge when faced with the complexity of expanding network topologies. Wireless communication based relays is the next generation suitable protection for smart grid. A new laboratory transmission line protection scheme using Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) communication protocol for data sharing between the two relays located at the ends of the transmission line is presented in this paper. Various factors that can affect data transmission through the wireless communication network are studied. The D-Link DWL-G700AP Access Points are used. They have the ability to transfer files with a maximum wireless signal rate of up to 54Mbps.
