Controlling power distribution in smart grid is a well- known research topic, which implies different aspects of electrical power management. Utilities aim to improve the efficiency in power consumption among the end consumers or scheduling power demand from the end consumers, in an attempt to avoid peak power loads and excessive power line losses in power network. In this framework, communications represent a central topic both for enabling the deployment of the next generation power distribution systems and for providing suitable models to analyze such systems. In this paper, we have introduced and modeled a new architecture for a community smart grid, where an information center is established as the core controller of the community power grid. Based on this novel approach, the potential impact of smart battery, smart metering and renewable energy sources have been studied. Then, we provided an optimal algorithm for power allocation in the new architecture, which can minimize the possibility of peak power loads even in situations of overloading, and reduce the line loss of power scheduling. Finally, we proposed a methodology to analyze the pricing scheme of the system.
