Abstract

The Indonesian national electric company (PT. PLN) has aimed to increase the level of electrification to provide a better life for citizens. However, the dispersion of citizens in remote islands challenges the electrification infrastructure and services. Nevertheless, some strategies have been implemented to pass the challenges, including the adoption of the emerging technology smart grid. The smart grid is adopted to solve specific problems of electrical power services for small remote islands with limited energy resources. Although various problems challenge development, smart grid development should follow its comprehensive aims. Therefore, an assessment method is needed to evaluate the smart grid to expose the advantages and disadvantages of the existing design. Furthermore, based on the evaluation results, recommendations can be delivered to increase the performance of the smart grid. Furthermore, the evaluation and recommendations can be used to improve the design of the next smart grid project. Finally, a smart grid on the remote island of Semau is used for a case study.
