Electric grid system, which is characterised by the use of communication networks and the control of grid components and loads. (1),

Smart grid is a modernised electrical grid that uses analogue or digital information and communications technology to gather and act on information - such as information about the behaviours of suppliers and consumers - in an automated fashion to improve the efficiency, reliability, economics, and sustainability of the production and distribution of electricity. Electronic power conditioning and control of the production and distribution of electricity are important aspects of the smart grid. (2)
