Other reasons that require to change from the traditional grid to smart grid management:

 

1.  Demand Response


From day to day, the country development is progressing whilst the population is remarkable increasing. Additionally, companies, enterprises, and other factories are open-all are needed electricity to operate. These factors are the reasons why the demand of using electricity increased.

 

 

2.  Integrate with Renewable Energy


Renewable energy or clean energy is the global vision for the future. The goal is to reduce reliance on coal or oil for generating electricity, as these sources have a negative impact on climate change and global warming. To achieve this goal, the traditional grid as it exists today cannot effectively integrate with renewable energy sources.

 

 

3.  Improved Grid Efficiency


By implementing the advanced technologies and intelligent systems, the grid can optimize power distribution, reduce transmission losses, and enhance overall reliability. Real time monitoring and control mechanism enable quick identification and restoration of faults, minimizing downtime and improving grid efficiency.
