A smart grid is an intelligent electrical grid that includes technological and technical components and operations to measure and distribute energy resources effectively and efficiently among beneficiaries in a smart city. Those components, including advanced metering system, load controllers and balancers, and other network components (infrastructure) are designed to present the structure of a smart grid and how those components are interconnected through rules to describe the functionality and management of that grid. Thus, and in order to build a a smart grid to a city (Abu Dhabi in this case), popular smart grid models are reviewed and compared from the US, Australia and China. Afterwards, the infrastructure and the architecture of Abu Dhabi's smart grid are proposed to fit the current and visioned Abu Dhabi's technological domain, based on the requirements (needs analysis) and available resources. In addition, the cyber security measures are also assessed to identify security grid threats and countermeasures. Finally, limitations are determined and future work are suggested.
