Abstract
Increasing requirements for the dynamic performance of electric energy systems will necessitate expanded distribution automation, which in turn will require extensive connectivity solutions. This paper explores the relevance and potential use of the latest communication technologies in the evolving distribution grids of the 2030s. The results indicate that the most critical parts of the grid and the most vital applications will rely on optical networking, while the functionality provided by emerging industrial mobile communication technologies could provide a feasible and compelling option for addressing the automation needs of new distribution grids. However, the study also reveals concerns about the reliability, latency, cybersecurity, feature maturity, and realization of the mobile communications features specified by 3GPP.
