Advancements in integrated circuit technology have made it possible for expanded flexibility in grid devices such as advanced meters, smart switches, reclosers, capacitor controllers and voltage regulators by building them as platforms for applications instead of products with built-in, limited functionality. Utilities could gain a new degree of control and manageability over their systems, and distributed resources, such as PV smart inverters, energy storage controls and electric vehicle charging stations are also good candidates for these open application platforms.
