In order to ensure the most reliable energy supply, efforts should be made to automate both MV/LV stations and devices located in the depth of the network. Smart Grid is a modern power system that intelligently integrates the activities of all participants, i.e. generation, transmission, distribution and use, in order to provide electricity in a safe, economically viable and least emergency manner.
The general concept of MV/LV substation monitoring is presented in the block diagram opposite.

The digital nature of the network allows for great flexibility in its management. In addition, Smart Grid networks allow for remote reading of energy meters, observation of the network status and quick response to permanent disruptions in energy supply.
