Industrial Ethernet Book 104

Smart Grid and Security The dual focus for this issue of the Industrial Ethernet Book, digital smart grid innovations and cyber security, clearly demonstrate how networking solutions have become central to major industrial technology initiatives. In a recent IIC white paper on applying IoT architectures to the smart grid, the authors concluded: "Electric power systems across the world are under stress. Physical changes in the structure of the grid pose perhaps the greatest challenge. Renewable energy sources, distributed energy production, new energy storage systems and electric vehicles are rapidly shifting the power flows and control from a centralized power generation model to a widely distributed model with a strong focus on the edge of the grid. A new class of distributed monitoring and control schemes with intelligence across the grid, especially at the edge, is needed." But the irony is that we all know that an equally strong statement could be made about the need for cyber security initiatves as well. Both of these areas are unbelievably important and interrelated technology challenges, where advanced networking solutions are a large part of the answer. In this issue, you'll find industry and technology leaders speaking about the latest innovations and trends in both of these areas. • On page 12, you’ll find how digital technology is enabling the next generation of substations. Modern substations require the highest rate of system availability, performance and networks able to comfortably handle large and ever-growing amounts of data. • On page 7, cyber security for modern TSN automation networks is the focus. While introducing real-time communication properties and guarantee of service, this new technology is also creating new cyber security challenges. • On page 18, you can learn how cyber security is key to successful IIoT deployments. Connecting devices to each other and the cloud opens the door for an intelligent process, but security concerns will impact the success of these applications. • And on page 22, the topic is how digital technology is spurring on smart grid innovations in areas such as grid security, utility WAN, substation and distribution automation, advanced metering infrastructure and mobile workforce. Smart grid automation and security will be two important focus areas for the forseeable future, so you can expect to be seeing ongoing coverage from IEB on solutions in both of these areas as we move into the future.
