The smart grid initiatives have three common priorities worldwide: security, reliability, and efficiency. With the increasing need to address climate change and greenhouse gas emissions, smart energy management systems have become a thing of necessity to address them. As such, Smart Home Energy Management Systems (SHEMS) incorporates this concept at the household level. SHEMS can introduce adjustments in the working period and operations of home appliances to allow for energy cost savings. This needs a reliable and efficient communication system that can transfer information and control signals between SHEMS and utility. Communication failure between SHEMS and utility can lead to customer anxiety and ineffective operations. The traditional power system reliability evaluation techniques do not take into consideration the above phenomenon. The goal of this work is to build a test system to analyze the reliability in the presence of communication failure between SHEMS and local data aggregator. For this purpose, a wireless sensor network (WSN) using ZigBee was developed in OPNET simulator considering the possible real-time distance from each house to local substation. This test system can be used by power system researchers in evaluating OPNET Modeler as a WSN simulator for Zigbee networks for IEEE 13 node system.
