Smart grid is the most ingenious and experimental technology in the present era. Assimilation of information and communication technologies with electrical infrastructure is the fundamental part of smart grid deployment. Smart grid communication architecture is a methodical framework of networks incorporating varied set of communication standards. Microgrid is the significant component of smart grid as it facilitates and expedites the usage of renewable energy assets. It can resolve the critical problems like unelectrified villages, electricity theft, depletion of fossil fuels, GHG emissions and greenhouse effect. Smart microgrid can function in two modes, namely grid-connected and island mode. It also encompasses hierarchical communication networks for automation of entire system. This paper describes the design and implementation of data acquisition and control system for smart microgrid prototype using IEEE 802.3 and IEEE 802.11 standards.
