CIM integration continues to be a major challenge for ERCOT

  • CIM integration is a critical dependency for Nodal Go-Live

  • Challenges for CIM integration include:

    • Stabilization of CIM schema and addition of extensions as required by EMS and MMS

    • Finalization (capture, clean up, validation) of CIM data from multiple sources

    • Coordination of solution across several project teams and several vendors


Single Entry Model and CIM integration are tightly coupled


We are closing on CIM Schema changes

  • Schema

    • Currently on version 1.16 of CIM Schema

  • CIM Data

    • Multiple data sources identified (i.e., Siebel, Registration, Zonal Model seed)

    • Identifying and resolving issues with data sets

    • Market Participant support required to clean up RARF data

  • MMS

    • All MMS extensions have been incorporated in V 1.16 of schema (except changes for defect fixes)

    • Approach to generate test data for V1.16 finalized

  • EMS

    • Anticipating few more iterations with AREVA for schema

    • Extent of work will be known once AREVA CIM importer Pre-FAT is complete


Status of NMMS readiness

  • EDS 2 Release 4 complete

  • NMMS software ready for SEM Go-live

  • NMMS team actively involved in CIM schema finalization and schema data population and validation

  • Determining need for one additional schema release prior to SEM Go-Live


Status of MMS CIM importer

  • MMS CIM importer functioning on V 1.08 of CIM schema

  • Currently testing MMS with V 1.12 of CIM schema at ABB

  • Refactoring of CIM importer will commence after valid test data set delivered for V1.16 of CIM

  • Cannot re-start EDS 4 activities without testing applications on MMS4 using CIM dataset.

  • Cannot complete EDS 4 or start 168-Hour Test before MMS regression test is complete using final CIM schema and dataset


Status of EMS CIM importer

  • EMS CIM importer FAT delayed further

  • EMS CIM importer Pre-FAT assessment scheduled for week of June 09, 2008

  • CIM importer Pre-FAT on V 1.16 of schema

  • Potential to see further issues with CIM schema and data once Pre-FAT begins

  • Stage 1 Network Model data validation for Single-Entry Model Go-Live will not start before EMS CIM importer FAT is complete

  • LFC 8,48 hour tests will re-commence only after data validation is complete

The above dates are vendor committed dates


To summarize..

  • Market Participant support is required for RARF data clean up – Dana Showalter will be working with MPs to ensure quality of RARFs

  • Stage 1 CIM Validation - Data Consistency cannot start until EMS CIM importer FAT is complete and comprehensive data set is available from GENESYS, RARFs and other sources

  • Data consistency is critical for Single Entry Model Go-Live and subsequently Nodal Go-Live

  • New target date for Single Entry Model Go-Live will be announced when Nodal integrated schedule is complete

  • Each of the activities and their dependencies will be incorporated into the Integrated Nodal Program Plan
