Abstract

The Cognitive Radio (CR) Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) network is considered as a viable solution to enhance various aspects of electric power grid and realize smart grid. However, several challenges are generated due to the harsh wireless environment in smart grid. As a result, throughput and reliability become critical issues. In this regard, we propose HCR-MAC, which is a high-capacity receiver-based MAC protocol for cognitive AMI. HCR-MAC uses a capacity-based auction mechanism and preamble sampling techniques for providing high capacity and reliability. In addition, HCR-MAC explicitly accounts for the peculiarities of a CR environment. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed protocol as a viable solution for cognitive AMI networks in smart grid.
