In recent years, there has been a plethora of research and development in the field of smart grids, especially on the power analysis and stabilization of the grids. This article aims to give intricate detail on the problems adhering to smart grids along with an analysis (case study), design and techniques for the power analysis and stabilization of smart grids. The smart grid is so designed that the reactive power losses are minimized and the synchronization losses between two adjacent buses are prevented to a negligible extent. Reactive power is one of the major components in a power system that add up to the major losses and thus the overall power loss [1]. Reducing the losses in reactive power will facilitate the reduction of overall power losses and hence is a major field of study among researchers. The article also gives intricate information on the two-way electric flow system of smart grids which create a widely automated and distributed network of power. All simulations and experimentation are carried out using the MATLAB/SIMULINK approach.
