New title for Communication and Information Engineering

Data privacy for the smart grid
By Rebecca Herold and Christine Hertzog.
TK3105.H561, Lee Wee Nam Library

Synopsis:

This book will inform readers without overwhelming them with too much technical detail. It will help them communicate more effectively with IT, telecom, and cyber security professionals as they work to build privacy into their daily work activities. The book supplies guidance for privacy management activities and privacy framework components focused on the Smart Grid. The authors, who are privacy professionals instead of engineers writing on privacy issues, draw upon their extensive experience within the utilities business sector, along with their work with NIST in the Cyber Security Working Group, Smart Grid privacy subgroup since June 2009.

Synopsis:
Electric power systems worldwide face radical transformation with the need to decarbonise electricity supply, replace ageing assets and harness new information and communication technologies (ICT). The Smart Grid uses advanced ICT to control next generation power systems reliably and efficiently. This authoritative guide demonstrates the importance of the Smart Grid and shows how ICT will extend beyond transmission voltages to distribution networks and customer-level operation through Smart Meters and Smart Homes.
Smart Grid Technology and Applications:
Clearly unravels the evolving Smart Grid concept with extensive illustrations and practical examples.
Describes the spectrum of key enabling technologies required for the realisation of the Smart Grid with worked examples to illustrate the applications.
Enables readers to engage with the immediate development of the power system and take part in the debate over the future Smart Grid.
Introduces the constituent topics from first principles, assuming only a basic knowledge of mathematics, circuits and power systems. [As provided by Syndetics]
