Cognitive-radio-based smart-grid networks have been studied recently as an efficient and reliable communications infrastructure for the future power grid. In this paper, we consider the spectrum resource management in cognitive-radio-based smart-grid networks. A new spectrum access paradigm called hybrid spectrum access (HSA) is proposed, in which both licensed and unlicensed spectrum bands are intelligently scheduled for the transmission of smart-grid services. The admission control problem… CONTINUE READING
