These articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication in IJSGGC, but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

  • Low Cost Smart Breaker Panel for Load Disaggregation   Order a copy of this article
    by Dale Persad, Arvind Singh, Sean Rocke, Craig Ramlal 
    Abstract: The electricity industry is in the middle of a shift from operating as a transparent servicernto one reliant on everyday customer engagement. Understanding consumer behaviour isrnbecoming even more central to the future planning of operations. Load Disaggregation,rnthe process of identifying device usage from aggregated load profiles has, therefore, becomernan important field of study. This paper details a prototype low cost breaker level meterrndeveloped as an intermediary between meter level monitoring, which yields the cheapestrnbut most aggregated load profile to plug level monitoring which is the most expensive butrnrequires no disaggregation. The system developed provides real time access to apparentrnpower consumption via a web application. The solution is economical, flexible and easilyrnexpandable. The prototype exhibited a low power consumption of less than 1 watt, and isrncapable of monitoring up to 15 circuits.

  • Security risk analysis approach for smart grid   Order a copy of this article
    by Dharmendra Yadav, Anjali Mahajan 
    Abstract: The paper comprehensively defines the effective research from the correspondence sources examines to assess the risk that is connected to smart grid systems. The research gives a defined framework like of Smart Grid network have fizzled in light of an absence of appropriate risk assessment from the beginning. Specialists have after sometimes utilized risk assessment to determine the suitability of programming items in the business sector. The substances of this paper are centred around assessment of such risk on frameworks attached to the smart grid. Security risk has become the worst threat to all industrial control systems. Cyber-crime has been moved to another level probing the manufacturers and operators to focus more on risk and exposure levels of systems before launch. This study is focused on evaluating the risk posed to a system like smart grid while providing solutions that will help to curb the risk. The qualities of a well-designed system and best practices is evaluated and then on this line, the standard measure is proposed for a properly functional grid. The threats posed to the system as a software and as a network will be discussed and backed up by the previous study. The solution to the Smart Grid framework is provided for vulnerability. The paper gives the solutions and recommendations that apply to systems of the same nature.
    Keywords: Smart-grid; cybercrime; vulnerability; reliability; security; risk.

  • QoS Provisioning in a Service Oriented Architecture Targeting the Smart Grid World   Order a copy of this article
    by Christos Chrysoulas 
    Abstract: In todays liberalized market of energy, dynamic selections of services (energy consumption or even energy production) and by extension of service providers are crucial. It is equally important for Service Providers to spot the one QoS Module that offers the best QoS level in a given cost. Attributes like type of service, response time, throughput, availability and cost, form the basic set of attributes that should be taken into consideration when building a concrete/stable Grid network. In the proposed QoS architecture, Prosumers request services based on the aforementioned set of attributes. The Prosumer requests the service through a QoS Module. Afterwards, it is the QoS Modules responsibility to seek the Service Provider that best serves the needs of the client.
    Keywords: QoS; Service Oriented Architecture; Smart Grid.

  • Product Opinion Analysis Using Text Mining And Analysis   Order a copy of this article
    by Marimuthu Karuppiah, Anuj Shankar, Rashmi Ranganathan, Niranchana R 
    Abstract: The enormous growth and usage of e-commerce offer positive ways to any business by sharing the emotions, feelings and experiences. Web users are benefited with valuable online reviews. There are many instances, where these reviews are not considered for evaluation of a product in the market, thus affecting the sales of the products. We intend to solve the problem of sentiment polarity computation, which is one of the most basic problems of sentiment analysis. A general process for sentiment polarity computation, department wise classification and feature extraction is proposed with detailed procedure. Data on online product reviews from was used in this study. ProSent is a real-time web service, which provides insights of the product by applying sentiment analysis on the reviews. It eases the way to manage bulk customer reviews and also simplifies handling of customer reviews with customizable workflow processes and meaningful graphs and charts.
