Electrical infrastructure is expanding day by day due to which smart grid gives better vision for electrical reliability. Various parameters like quality and quantity of power transmitted should be available with the electricity board which can be achieved using smart sensing, metering and communication technologies. If all the above requirements are met in power system then it is called smart grid (SG). SG also helps consumers to manage the load patters and also to manage their expenses. The main component of SG is the communication technology to share data between consumers and grid since grid operators requires real time data to schedule their supply. The Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) uses Aggregation Protocol with Error Detection (APED) to improve the security of data. The SG with SCADA is facilitated by data acquisitions which includes the meter reading, system conditions, etc. that are monitored and transmitted at regular intervals in real time. This paper reviews the modern technologies used in smart grid communication based on IEEE 802.15.4 standard to the SG and how it is modified to ensure effective, efficient and economical and secured communication of the huge real time data from the smart meters.
