TL;DR: An open standard protocol for networking of energy meters under the simple network-management protocol (SNMP) environment is proposed and a sample network is created under the LabVIEW virtual instrumentation environment and studied to validate the proposed openstandard protocol.
Abstract: An open standard protocol for networking of energy meters under the simple network-management protocol (SNMP) environment is proposed. Since the SNMP is quite popular for network enabling of uninterruptible power supplies, the necessary support hardware and software already exist. Hence, migrating energy meter connectivity to the transfer control protocol/Internet protocol-based SNMP would be an easy task. A sample network is created under the LabVIEW virtual instrumentation environment and studied to validate the proposed open standard protocol for networking of energy meters.

TL;DR: An architecture of a low-cost ARM-based Smart Metering network designed to be suitable for Smart Grids applications aimed to a more efficient energy use according to the article 13 of Directive 2006/32/EC is presented.
Abstract: In this paper, an architecture of a low-cost ARM-based Smart Metering network is presented. The system is designed to be suitable for Smart Grids applications aimed to a more efficient energy use according to the article 13 of Directive 2006/32/EC. The network is composed by several slave smart meters that continuously monitor loads and energy generator to make available in real-time information such as power and energy consumption/generation and several power quality parameters to a specific master device called data aggregator. This device integrating the information coming from slave smart meters and information regarding co-generator status, the forecast renewable source availability and, through a web service access, current energy prices, can take decisions to apply suitable management strategies aimed at reducing costs.

TL;DR: A smart electricity monitoring system of building is presented using ZigBee and internet to establish the network and a hierarchical ant colony algorithm is developed for data transmission among the wireless sensor nodes.
Abstract: A smart electricity monitoring system of building is presented using ZigBee and internet to establish the network. This system consists of three hardware layers: the host PC, the router, and the sensor nodes. A hierarchical ant colony algorithm is developed for data transmission among the wireless sensor nodes. The wireless communication protocol is also designed based on IPv6 protocol on IEEE 802.15.4 wireless network. All-IP approach and peer-to-peer mode are integrated to optimize the network building. Each node measures the power, current, and voltage and transmits them to the host PC through the router. The host software is designed for building test characteristics, having a tree hierarchy and a friendly interface for the user. The reliability and accuracy of this monitoring system are verified in the experiment and application.

TL;DR: Research issues and prospects for energy saving networks are introduced and sensor networks/ad hoc networks have been studied for a number of years in efforts to overcome battery constraints.
Abstract: Studies on existing and future networks aimed at building an energy saving networks have been conducted by global standard groups such as GreenTouch, IETF, and ITU-T. Future networks deployed without considering energy issues will encounter major problems related to network maintenance and operating costs, and ICT has been a recent area of interest with respect to saving energy. Sensor networks/ad hoc networks have been studied for a number of years in efforts to overcome battery constraints. Meanwhile, research on reducing the overall energy dissipation at the network level has been conducted by GreenTouch. In this paper, we introduce research issues and prospects for energy saving networks.

TL;DR: A monitoring system of building electricity using IPv6 to establish a network, with real-time measurement of power, current and voltage values including RMS, instantaneous value and peak value, achieved accurate data sampling and communication stability.
Abstract: This paper presents a monitoring system of building electricity using IPv6 to establish a network. This smart metering system consists of three parts: the host software, the network and the sensor nodes. The network, whose data transmits via Zigbee wireless communication protocol, is designed based-on IPv6 protocol, and builds the IPv6 protocol on IEEE 802.15.4 wireless network. The Sensor node has a unique IP address and the sampling rate is set according to the host system. With real-time measurement of power, current and voltage values including RMS, instantaneous value and peak value, each node achieved accurate data sampling and communication stability. The host software is designed for building test characteristics, having a tree hierarchy and friendly interface to user. The reliability and accuracy of this monitoring system are verified in the experiment.

TL;DR: A survey of the three versions of SNMP is provided, including a discussion of the way in which management information is represented and the protocol functionality.
Abstract: The Simple Network Management Protocol is the most widely used protocol for the management of IP-based networks and internets. The original version, now known as SNMPv1, is widely deployed. SNMPv2 adds functionality to the original version but does not address its security limitations; this relatively recent standard has not achieved much acceptance. An effort is currently underway to develop SNMPv3, which will retain the functional enhancements of SNMPv2 and add powerful privacy and authentication features. This article provides a survey of the three versions of SNMP, including a discussion of the way in which management information is represented and the protocol functionality.

TL;DR: The article Understanding SNMP MIBs which follows contains information and conventions that were state of the art as of the spring of 1992, but it is my wish to update the current version of the article to add the resolutions, and expand on some of the advanced topics such as row creation/deletion and actions.
Abstract: The article Understanding SNMP MIBs which follows contains information and conventions that were state of the art as of the spring of 1992. Since then, the SNMPv2 working group was formed, did work, and concluded after producing a new management framework documented by RFCs 1441 through 1452. In doing this work, many of the open issues raised in Understanding SNMP MIBs have been resolved. Some can be applied retroactively to the SNMPv1 framework, but not all. It is my wish to update the current version of the article to add the resolutions, and expand on some of the advanced topics such as row creation/deletion and actions. However, at this time this work has not been scheduled.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors examined the technical elements necessary for the design of the AMR system through the PLC, Concentration Modem, and the communication protocol applicable for the various PLC modems simultaneously.
Abstract: It is the advantage of power line carrier (PLC) that digitalization and networking of existing facilities could be organized at low cost. Because there is no need for any further construction of communication lines, given that home appliances, information devices and other various kinds of control devices therein related are easily digitalized. Moreover, automatic meter reading (AMR) is very attractive to utility companies because not only does it reduce the cost of reading meters, but controls and monitors energy demand, and resolves consumer problems effectively. Furthermore, utilities could expand such areas into the value added service sector using the constructed networks. Because the PLC modem under development needs to be tested further, and the outdoor modem especially, the Korea Electric Power Research Institute has been focusing its energy on implementing the AMR system in the context of experimenting and investigating actual performance of various types of modems under real power distribution system. In this paper, we examine the technical elements necessary for the design of the AMR system through the PLC, Concentration Modem, and the communication protocol applicable for the various PLC modems simultaneously.

TL;DR: The current SNMP and CMOT approaches to TCP/IP network management are compared from several different perspectives; comparisons are based on both theory and knowledge gained from actual implementation experiences.
Abstract: Recent network management activities in the TCP/IP community have focused on standardizing two network management protocols-Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and Common Management Information Services and Protocol Over TCP/IP (CMOT)-that provide for the exchange of management information. The current SNMP and CMOT approaches to TCP/IP network management are compared from several different perspectives; comparisons are based on both theory and knowledge gained from actual implementation experiences. The current level of user and vendor acceptance for these two protocols is examined and explained, and ongoing standardization efforts are summarized. Relevant ongoing work is summarized, and trends over the next few years are discussed. >
