  1. 1. Assembling the Smart Grid : On the Mobilization of Imaginaries, Users and Materialities in a Swedish Demonstration Project

    Author : Anna Wallsten; Harald Rohracher; Jonas Anshelm; Vasilis Galis; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Smart grids; demonstration projects; translations; sociotechnical imaginaries; material participation; users; Smarta elnät; demonstrationsprojekt; översättning; sociotekniska föreställningar; material participation; användare;

    Abstract : Influential actors refer to smart grids as a revamped version of the energy systemwhen they argue for alternative energy pathways, and assign demonstration projects with the task of turning prospects about the future into functional configurations. This thesis explores notions of the smart grid future that are implicitly conveyed in Swedish smart grid strategy and planning documents. READ MORE

  2. 2. On possibilities of smart meters switching at low voltage level for emergency grid management

    Author : Yasir Arafat; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Electrical distribution grid; Smart grid; Remote switching; Smart meter.; Power quality; Power quality measurement;

    Abstract : Smart Meter (SM) is an advanced remotely readable energy meter with two-way communication capability which measures the electrical energy in real-time or near-real-time and securely sends data to Distribution System Operator (DSO). A smart metering system is an application of SMs on a larger scale, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modeling and constructing unstructured overlay networks: Algorithms, techniques and the Smart Grid case

    Author : Georgios Georgiadis; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; matching; smart grid; online computation; scheduling; unstructured overlays; random walks; natural computing; resistor networks; clustering;

    Abstract : Throughout its lifetime, the Internet was always associated with overlay networks; from the WorldWideWeb and peer-to-peer networks to blogs and social networking solutions, overlays built on the Internet infrastructure gave it additional value and made it more engaging to everyday users. Today, rising overlay networks such as the Smart Grid as well as a multitude of sensor, mobile andwireless networks herald a new era of unprecedented connectivity and networking. READ MORE

  4. 4. Supermarket refrigeration systems for demand response in smart grids

    Author : Tommie Månsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
