Smart grid is a new developing concept in power system. This technology observes the state of power system and intelligently take decisions to quickly clear faults, restores power and monitor demand to preserve the stability and performance of the electric power network formerly done by engineers. This paper discusses the technologies of smart grid and presents a developed model to illustrate the implementation of Demand Response System (DRS) in the distribution network of the smart grid. It also reviews the potential benefits as compared to the traditional power system grid. Finally, future challenges of the smart grid are highlighted.
