The architecture purpose is to structure and organise the system in such a way that it is stable, usable, adapt to changes, and economical. When the architecture is sound, it helps to design better the system that is being described. The architecture of a system is a global model of it. It usually consists of a structure, properties of various elements involved, relationships between components, and their behaviour and dynamics. This chapter presents the first holistic architecture of smart grids comprising the high-, medium- and low voltage grids, customer plants and the market. It is designed based on the fractal feature of the grid. The derived LINK-paradigm and the corresponding technical and market holistic models are described in detail. The different architecture levels, operation modes, and new control chain net strategies are some of the topics treated in this chapter. Additionally, the keystones are given for the chains of smart grids operation such as monitoring, load/generation balance, Volt/var management, demand response, congestion management, and so on. It also lays out the fundamentals of smart grid operational chains such as monitoring, load/generation balancing, volt/var management, demand response, congestion management, etc. Finally, data privacy and cybersecurity, the LINK economics and implementation steps are discussed. It does not attempt to gear the holistic approach to the Smart Grid in a particular country. Instead, the basics concepts are highlighted, all of which can be easily implemented to suit each country's Smart Grids’ specific circumstances.
