[en] Grid monitoring is an important task for operators of the distribution grid, as it allows
them to identify and diagnose problems in the system. This can save energy and money,
as well as improve system reliability.
There are a number of different methods that grid operators can use to monitor
the system. One popular approach is to use data collected by sensors located on the
distribution grid. However, the data from these sensors can be rather expensive to
collect and store; therefore they may not be suitable for smaller network operators. Some
operators also use electrical measurements taken directly from the grid’s conductors, but
these are also not practical for smaller networks.
One potential use for blockchain in grid monitoring is to store data about the
production of electricity on the distribution grid. This data could be used to improve
system reliability and optimize energy use. We developed a proof of concept software
called "MonitORES" that could utilize this technology to achieve these goals.
The proof of concept developed was based on Hyperledger Fabric and showed
that monitoring and control operations can be achieved by blockchain. Analyzing the
probabilities of successful attacks on the current system and on the proposed architecture,
the results showed how a distributed system reduces the probabilities of such attacks.
