GOMEZ, Víctor A.; HERNANDEZ, Cesar  and  RIVAS, Edwin. Overview, Features and Functionalities of the Smart Grid. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.2, pp.89-102. ISSN 0718-0764.

This paper presents an overview of the smart grid with its features and functionalities and identifies the research activities, developments, problems and challenges of smart grids. To achieve this objective, a literature review was done, finding how the dynamic integration of developments in electrical engineering, energy storage and advances in information and communication technologies has shaped the concept of the modern electricity network. In this area, policy implementation and the rapid integration of management systems are causing a great revolution in the generation, transmission, distribution, operation and energy consumption.

Keywords : distributed energy resources; micro-grids; smart grids.
