In modern era, Smart grid is a new technology that explains lack of software programs that simulate the principles of Smart grid. The prime intention of Smart grid simulation is to provide a better platform for user interaction. Smart grid system makes it possible to have an intelligent communicating network by integration and combination of electrical power grids. Smart meters are connected by the system through RF signals to a central point with the PLC as the medium. The main intention of this system is to explain the transfer of data and the intermediate processes involved in data transfer to the utility from different houses. The paper further describes the implementation of the entire process using MATLAB, thus demonstrating the flow of smart metering data to utility from different houses.
