De-Mystifying Smart Grid Standards - Common Information Model (CIM)

"The “De-mystifying Smart Grid Standards” series started by reviewing new networking specifications - IEEE 802.15.4g, 15.4e, RoLL - part of the end-to-end Smart Grid communications architecture. The adoption of a TCP/IP-based framework for network communications enables Smart Grid applications to develop independently of the lower layers’ evolution and to leverage the standards-based two-way communications capabilities for important benefits such as:
  • Load control
  • Dynamic pricing
  • Outage detection
  • Distributed energy resource (DER) control signals
  • On-demand read
But TCP/IP does not address the challenges of data representation and exchange within and between Distribution Management Systems such as these Smart Grid domain/sub-domain examples:
  • Customer domains
    • Business/building Area Networks (BAN)
    • Home Area Networks (HAN)
    • Industrial Area Networks (IAN)
  • Operation domains
    • Monitoring
    • Control
    • Fault management"
