The smart grid is the modernization of the electricity supply system. It monitors, protects, and automatically optimizes the operation of its interconnected elements in order to guarantee the supply of electricity. Consumers of electricity are asked to reduce their consumption (shed load) at critical periods, and receive financial incentives for doing so.
Lutron smart grid solutions contain load shedding software that can easily reduce the lighting load to a pre-programmed level either at the touch of a button or via an automatic command. Lighting is an ideal choice for load shedding because it consumes a substantial amount of electricity, and because, unlike other systems, power reductions can be implemented gradually, so that they go unnoticed by the occupants in a building.
The smart grid is an automated electric power system that monitors and controls grid activities, ensuring the two-way flow of electricity and information between power plants and consumers—and all points in between. Up and down the electric power system, the smart grid will generate billions of data points from thousands of system devices and hundreds of thousands of consumers.
