Standing Member Committee [clear filter]
Monday, December 8

10:00am PST

Cybersecurity (SGCC)
Chair Vicky Pillitteri, NIST

The SGCC Working Meeting will include a status update from the active subgroups, discussion of the SGCC Project Plan for 2015, and discuss in further detail the Cybersecurity Standards Mapping activity. The Cybersecurity Standards Mapping activity will leverage the IEC website that is starting to map different types of standards to domains (see http://smartgridstandardsmap.com/). However, the cybersecurity mappings often just include the basic cybersecurity standards everywhere and not separating security standards by layer or purpose.  The SGCC proposes to develop a document that categorizes the cybersecurity standards by SGIP domain and by “layer” (e.g. business security policies, functional security procedures, information security, communications network security, cyber-physical security). This could be published by the SGIP and/or provided to the IEC.  

Monday December 8, 2014 10:00am - 11:30am PST

2:30pm PST

Smart Grid Architecture Committee (SGAC)
Chair: Ron Cunningham. SGAC is responsible for reviewing Smart Grid interoperability standards for architecture best practices; creating and working with other regional and international architecture bodies on an aligned architectural methodology, and associated artifacts; and identifying architectural requirements and making recommendations on emerging Smart Grid requirements such as transactive energy, microgrids, demand response and distributed energy resources.

Monday December 8, 2014 2:30pm - 4:00pm PST

2:30pm PST

Smart Grid Testing & Certification Committee (SGTCC)

Chair: Erich Gunther. The SGTCC focuses on testing and certification programs and processes that intend to accelerate the availability of interoperable systems and devices for the Smart Grid. It has developed processes, as embodied in its Interoperability Process Reference Manual (IPRM), that provide approaches and best practices for industry test programs that focus on interoperability, and promotes widespread adoption of such programs.

The meeting will cover:

1) Process for codifying the IPRM Version 3 as a standard

2) Status update on PAP23 activities

3) Update and discussion of the Catalog of Test Programs (CoTP)

4) Discussion regarding restart of the Catalog of Standards (CoS) review working group

5) Discussion to support development of a prioritized SGTCC work plan for 2015

Monday December 8, 2014 2:30pm - 4:00pm PST

4:00pm PST

SGAC Architecture Development Working Party (AWP)

Chair: Ron Cunningham. The SGAC via AWP is currently working on vetting and identifying voids in a set of architectural entities (e.g. actors, services) to help form a common set of vocabulary for use in future business use case, conceptual/logical architecture, and standards development. This effort includes categorizing these entities as to architectural hierarchy levels (conceptual, logical, physical) along with mapping them to the smart grid domains and SGAM zones.  AWP also continues to work with other industry and international groups in clarifying and extending architectural frameworks and associated models. This meeting will refine the set of actors/roles to ensure consistency and completeness with US and international standards.

Monday December 8, 2014 4:00pm - 5:30pm PST

Smart Grid Implementation Methods Committee (SGIMC) with Duke Energy Speaking

“Standardization of a Utility Field Message Bus”

Stuart Laval, Manager, Technology Development, Duke Energy

Duke Energy has developed a “Distributed Intelligence Platform (DIP)”. It is equivalent to an Internet of Things (IoT) platform for the utility. The core of this reference architecture is an open API field message bus, which communicates with operations technology devices and systems in the distribution system, including legacy systems. The architecture enables peer-to-peer device communications at the “edges” of the distribution system, thus providing lower latency functionality. As part of its “Coalition of the Willing” program, Duke Energy has successfully tested the architecture’s functionality for the following smart grid use cases: solar smoothing, community energy storage, and voltage management. This case study presentation describes the DIP architecture, provides some use case results, and offers some interoperability “lessons learned” from the program to date.
