Furthermore, advances in communication technology, both wired and wireless, are being built into the modern grid. This communication feature leads to what we call a "smart grid". However, obstacles stand in the way of smart grid implementation. These obstacles include evolving standards, rock-solid reliability requirements, security, a low-cost implementation, and two-way communication for real-time transmission.
Designing smart grid automation equipment and renewable energy sources, such as solar inverter systems for the smart energy ecosystem, is far from simple. This is where Intel® FPGAs play a vital role. With a single Intel® FPGA or SoC FPGA, you can better meet evolving standards for your design while increasing performance and scalability demands for mission-critical system functions like the control loop, grid communications, network redundancy, and security.
