Smart energy systems are replacing the old electrical grid, which was made to send power from fixed sources to homes and businesses. These changes are caused by the need for power transfer to be more reliable, efficient, and long-lasting. IoT, AI, and blockchain are some of the new technologies that smart energy systems use to connect to the grid and make it possible to watch, control, and improve power flows in real time.Renewable energy sources, like solar and wind power, being added to the grid is a key part of smart energy systems. These sources are naturally changeable and spread out, so they need complex control systems to make sure they work well together. Machine learning and other AI programs are being used to predict and improve the production of green energy, which keeps the power supply steady.The use of IoT devices for grid tracking and control is another important part of smart energy systems. When put in different parts of the grid, these devices gather information about how power moves, the health of equipment, and the weather. After that, this information is used to make the grid work better, find and fix problems, and make the grid more reliable generally.A big part of blockchain technology is also found in smart energy systems, especially when it comes to peer-to-peer energy sharing. People can buy and sell energy directly with each other using smart contracts based on the blockchain, instead of going through regular energy sellers. This makes things more efficient, encourages the use of clean energy, and lowers carbon pollution.Smart energy systems are the way of the future for power networks because they make them more efficient, reliable, and environmentally friendly. Advanced technologies like AI, IoT, and blockchain are being used in these systems to change how energy is made, distributed, and used.
