Smart grid definitions l.jpg
Smart Grid Definitions

“An automated, widely distributed energy delivery network characterized by a two-way flow of electricity and information, capable of monitoring and responding to changes in everything from power plants to customer preferences to individual appliances.”

“An electricity delivery system (from point of generation to point of consumption) integrated with communications and information technology.”

Ieee s role in smart grid l.jpg
IEEE’s Role in Smart Grid

  • IEEEUtilizes the global expertise and synergy of the IEEE's 44 societies and technical councils in technical development, education, publication, and standards community

  • IEEE-SABaseline IEEE standards in diverse fields such as power, communications, digital information management controls technology, networking, security, reliability assessment, interconnection of distributed resources including renewable energy sources to the grid, sensors, electric metering, broadband over power line, and systems engineering uniquely position the IEEE-SA to integrate these technologies into a forward-looking platform

Slide11 l.jpg

IEEE P2030, of Smart Grid StandardsDraft Guide for Smart Grid Interoperability of Energy Technology and Information Technology Operation with the Electric Power System (EPS), and End-Use Applications and Loads

Scope and Purpose

  • Scope: This document provides guidelines for smart grid interoperability. This guide provides a knowledge base addressing terminology, characteristics, functional performance and evaluation criteria, and the application of engineering principles for smart grid interoperability of the electric power system with end use applications and loads. The guide discusses alternate approaches to good practices for the smart grid.

  • Purpose: This standard provides guidelines in understanding and defining smart grid interoperability of the electric power system with end-use applications and loads. Integration of energy technology and information and communications technology is necessary to achieve seamless operation for electric generation, delivery, and end-use benefits to permit two way power flow with communication and control. Interconnection and intra-facing frameworks and strategies with design definitions are addressed in this standard, providing guidance in expanding the current knowledge base. This expanded knowledge base is needed as a key element in grid architectural designs and operation to promote a more reliable and flexible electric power system.

Ieee scc21 p2030 meeting l.jpg
IEEE SCC21 P2030 Meeting of Smart Grid Standards

  • First meeting June 3-5; hosted by Intel

    • Over 300 in attendance (in-person and remote access)

  • Discussion, level setting, planning for future work. 

    • No motions and voting at the meeting

  • Three Task Force breakout sessions:

    • Power Engineering Technology Task Force

      • Leader: Sam Sciacca, Microsol, Inc. and Tom Prevost, Weidman Diagnostic Solutions

    • Information Technology Task Force

IEEE SCC21 P2030 Meeting of Smart Grid Standards

  • Results: A lot of brainstorming and from that, some general conclusions; e.g.

    • IT had good support for starting with the NIST Design Expert Working Groups as initial demarcation points for separation of utility function from customers, generation facilities (including home generation), etc. 

  • There was general agreement that significant liaison between Task Forces will be required, e.g.

    • The Power Task Force will be requesting capabilities and proposing assumptions for the capabilities to be delivered by the Communications and IT TFs

  • All 3 Task Forces will be meeting either via teleconference or in-person prior to the next P2030 meeting

    • October timeframe, possibly hosted by IBM

  • Overall: a very positive and collaborative first meeting

  • Define information attributes

    • (Where, When, Who, What)




  • Task Force 3

  • Addresses communications interoperability between devices within SmartGrid

  • Describe layers above PHY/MAC and below Layer 6

    • Neutral to PHY/MAC standards used in the Smart Grid

    • PHY/MAC standards are being developed by other groups

  • Interoperability of electric power systems with end use applications and loads should be maintained regardless of the PHY/MAC

Observations l.jpg
Observations of Smart Grid Standards

  • Smart grid Standards will extend across the entire grid (i.e., need interoperability standards (top down) and building block standards (bottom up).

  • Smart grid Equipment Standards will be needed to handle information data management, communications and control.

  • Flexible smart grid system Interoperability Design and operational Standards will allow near term and long term smart grid evolution.

  • Development of a body of Interoperability Smart grid Standards need to be initiated now.

Global commitment l.jpg
Global Commitment of Smart Grid Standards

  • Smart Grid standardization will be a broad global collaborative effort across multiple communities

    • Standards development organizations

    • Government organizations

    • Private sector
