ELECTRI International has released its recent research on the Smart Grid:  Installation and construction Management Aspects for Electrical Contractors.  The study, conducted by Professor Matt Syal, Michigan State University, explores current and emerging smart grid technologies and their impact on electrical construction.  Next, Syal developed installation work scopes and associated construction management aspects for five major smart grid technologies:

  • Energy Storage Devices (ESD)
  • Advanced Superconducting Transmission Cables
  • Smart Substation and Smart Transformers
  • Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)
  • Home Area Networks (HAN)

The analysis of each technology is presented in two sets of checklists: one summarizing the specific technology in terms of six impact areas from design location to procurement and installation to supporting components, and the second checklist summarizing the work scope of electrical contractors.
