New Findings Reported from Manav Rachna University Describe Advances in Mobile Communications (Density Based Fuzzy C Means Clustering To Prolong Network Lifetime In Smart Grids)

Computers, Networks & Communications Daily

2021 JUN 10 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Computers, Networks & Communications Daily -- Data detailed on Mobile Communications have been presented. According to news originating from Faridabad, India, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, “Wireless sensor networks (WSN’s) are preferred for industrial applications due to progressive increase of sensor electronics. One such application is deployment of WSN’s in smart grids.”

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Manav Rachna University, “Smart Grid integrates information and communication techniques with electricity network. Smart grids utilize sophisticated control and monitoring devices for improving the efficiency of the grid. For energy efficient, low cost monitoring and control in smart grid WSN’s is treated as a promising technology. Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is the key technology in the distribution networks of Smart Grid. The AMI is composed of various sensors for metering purpose. The meter data is also useful for the distribution operators to manage the demand response. The network involves smart meters, smart electric gas and water meters along with digital network management appliances for optimizing the electric network with real time data management. The smart sensors are limited in terms of battery, operational power and memory. These sensors communicate with the base station in restricted range. The communication between smart grid nodes and base station (sink) is multi-hop in nature. The communication takes place within limited range of communication so the security concerns that are involved in the network are to be handled by the routing protocols. So as to make the bidirectional communication efficient between the smart sensors and utility an effective routing scheme is required for these energy limited devices to handle the heavy network traffic in smart grids. Here energy efficient routing for WSN’s in NAN networks to attain load balancing is proposed through density based Fuzzy C means clustering (DFCM).”

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “The obtained simulation results show that DFCM can provide a satisfactory performance for enhancing the network life span.”

This research has been peer-reviewed.
