             In power system, electric grid means a vast and variable setup of electrical components that distribute electrical energy from the generating locations to the user end. The electric grid is deliberated to be a technological prodigy in handling so many generating units, high megawatts of generating capacity and several miles of transmission lines. A grid would be more efficient when more resiliency is added into the existing electrical network and made ready for diffident unavoidable tragedies and natural calamities. Therefore, if some extra powerful features are supplemented to the existing grid then it becomes a smart grid. The extra powerful features can be advanced power and control techniques application in grid operation. This will make the existing grid network more efficient, faster in power transmission and self-repair after power disturbances, inexpensive, improved security etc. Through smart grid, the power system becomes smart by communicating, sensing, control and applying intelligence. For ideal system, the smart grid technologies are more compatible to permit many functions which can optimize with the combination of the use of bulk generation and transmission.
