The center for smart grid technology (CSGT) provides a platform for members to works closely with the electricity supply industry stakeholders in developing the national agenda on the electricity smart grid. The center is expected to extensively carry out research on sensors, communication and control strategies for safe, efficient and economic delivery of electricity. Those technologies can be used in Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), Distribution Management System, demand response application, integrated communications and decision support facility for asset management. An initial test bed and development facility was built on campus to test automatic energy metering infrastructure, security access and demand side management. The center membership is open to all researchers at UNITEN and also industrial collaborators.
