In recent years, there is an increasing trend in the power systems from a centralized fossil fuel-based grid toward a distributed green-based network. This requirement compels a new way of designing smart grids for a more reliable and secure power system performance. Involving the demand side in the power system management requires large-scale utilization of distributed communication networks.
