The current industry focus on the smart grid is centered around the challenges of adding intelligence and networking to existing legacy systems. The concept of the smart grid is driven by the need to integrate variable power sources such as wind or wave power into the existing power grid based around static sources such as traditional power stations.
In this distributed grid, devices must be easily monitored for performance from remote locations, and manufacturers must have the ability to diagnose issues without a physical inspection. Critical safety patches need to be installed with the least disruption in operations. Wind River® can help meet these challenges.
