A smart electrical grid enables instantaneous communication between electrical producers and electrical consumers to enhance the efficiency and stability of the system. Smart home appliances (e.g. refrigerator, dishwasher, clothes washing machine) could be designed to turn off at critical moments when needed to help avert a potential power brownout or blackout. Electric vehicles that are plugged in for recharging can help to stabilize a smart electrical grid by occasionally feeding power back into the grid when needed to help prevent a brownout or blackout.
