About the book

To accomplish the objectives of the Smart grid, Smart metering is the main dynamism. Smart Grids solve necessitous complications like balancing of renewables, customer operations, peak management, and many more. Incontrovertibly, Smart metering helps to dwindle the commercial Losses, monitor energy(real-time or near real-time), detect energy theft(Cybersecurity), enhance reliability in Grid and lead to better revenue as well as tariff management. Additionally, it introduces innovative tariff structures, dispatches accurate bills based on meter data, thus reduces the annoyance of customers and uplifts customer constancy. It will motivate consumers to change behavior and optimize energy consumption, even by generating their own electricity and sell it back to the grid, which will boost the business turnover in the later stage. So, Smart metering technology plays a major role to accomplish the objectives of a smart grid. Undoubtedly, Control Systems, Automations, FACTS devices, Smart Sensors, Wireless sensors, Cybersecurity, Communication Networks, Data acquisition, Signal processing and processing, Energy Conservation and Management, Renewable energy resources, Grid integration play important roles for making reliable smart metering technologies.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
