Wireless Mesh

Wireless Mesh

Additional Information

Project Summary

EPRI is exploring the various power management approaches suitable for large lower-power wireless mesh deployments. In addition, this project will use the benefits of wireless sensors to demonstrate the value of a sensor suite that can potentially be rapidly deployed to address short-term problems that arise in a substation. A final project goal is to demonstrate the integration of wireless sensors into an IEC61850 compliant architecture.

Project Status

Project Phase: Demonstration

The learnings from an earlier demonstration of a large wireless mesh are now being applied to the application of a new wireless mesh deployment. The focus of the next deployment is wireless sensor integration into a laboratory environment that mimics the corporate architecture.
