Abstract

In this paper, discernible challenges of autonomous grid operation via wireless machine-to-machine communication are surveyed. The objective was to gain insight into the feasibility of a self-regulating, autonomous smart grid which depends largely on wireless machine-to-machine communication technology. This technology is envisioned to coordinate numerous distributed energy resources and other cyber physical components for the substance of stable and secure grid operation. This survey showed that the technology readiness level of wireless telecommunication is currently insufficient to uphold autonomous control of power systems. Moreover, standard frameworks must be developed in order to advance the practicality of machine-to-machine communication technology regarding secure and autonomous grid operation.
