Abstract : Since decades, the power grid is Under going a tremendous evolution, toward what is called the Smart Grid. The grid is actually evolving from a centralized architecture to a decentralized one, taking into account all the unpredictable sources and consumption. The Advanced Metering Infrastructure is the network dedicated to the Smart Grid that allows two-ways communications between the consumers and the energy providers. Smart Meters networks, that are part of this architecture, rely on powerline communications, a technology that is highly sensitive to interference. Despite dedicated layer 2 protocols, the employed technologies cannot fulfill most of smart grid applications requirements. The majority of smart meter network technology candidates are short range, each meter cannot reach the concentrator in one hop. Nodes need to collaborate, using a routing protocol like RPL to reach the destination. The goal of this thesis is to modify RPL to a multi interfaces environment, and study how interface heterogeneity could increase the reliability and the performance of a smart meter network.
