How do IEC and CEN-CENELEC_ETSI address standardization for the smart grids with a systemic view?

Laurent Guise

Schneider Electric (F)

Abstract

 

Addressing the whole smart grid domain and the attached breakthroughs (digitalization, new codes and regulation, increase of the variety of actors and of their interactions), the standardization process needs to adapt itself to cope with a more systemic view. The challenges are not only to address the new requirements, but also to encourage the different domain experts to better work together, to share their expertise, and to de-silo as much as possible the organizations. Both Europe standardization bodies – CEN-CENELEC-ETSI (triggered by the European Commission mandate M/490) and the IEC (launching the “system” approach) have tried to address the point and have already successfully delivered some key pieces such as the Smart Grid Architecture model.

The presentation will sum up the available outcomes of these standardization bodies, show their interactions, and also evaluate their real maturity in deploying a systemic view. It will conclude by listing some areas of improvement (mostly captured in the standardization work programs of both bodies) both from a technical and organizational point of view.

Modeling DERs for Grid Integration – a report from the European Research project OS4ES

Christoph Brunner

it4power (CH)

Abstract

 

Mass presence of distributed energy resources (DER) connected to the grid complicates network management and has adverse effects on grid reliability and robustness. As part of a European research project, an open system for energy services (OS4ES) has been developed as a platform that provides Smart Grid actors such as aggregators with an ideal mean of monitoring and controlling a large number of DERs. A central component of OS4ES is its distributed registry where DERs register both their static and dynamic data including measurement data ant their available energy services. Once registered, the DERs are visible to authorized aggregators, who can browse the registry for DERs matching their needs. After having reserved and contracted, the aggregator can activate the DERs as needed to support the grid. A possible application is, to setup dynamic virtual power plants. The data model of the registry, used to describe the DER data and used to control them by an aggregator is based on IEC 61850.

Device Management System

Thierry Coste

EDF (F)

Abstract

 

Energy transition will be accompanied by a digital transition for network operators which are or will be facing massive roll-outs and refurbishment of their distributed automation to implement deeper monitoring and new smart grid applications. The devices to be deployed to solve today’s issues (MV voltage and reactive power regulation for example) will necessarily have to be upgradeable to face those of tomorrow (e.g. electric vehicles, low voltage automation) which will arrive long before the end of its lifetime. Furthermore, there is a necessity for the equipment to be adapted to the evolving and growing cybersecurity threats. To avoid significant costs, this requirement of adaptability will therefore introduce a need for remote System Management capability, as a large amount of equipment will have to be able to be patched, updated and reconfigured. This is a cornerstone of the Smart Grid Device Management System. However, the Smart Grid Device Management System also encompasses a large range of functions including asset management, supervision (different from a SCADAperspective). As we see it, this issue will be of a major importance for the upcoming smart grid solutions and must be standardized in coordination with the IEC 61850 standard specifying data and communication for the grid automation equipment.

 

Thierry Coste joined EDF in 1985 and has worked in different distribution areas. He joined EDF R&D as research Engineer in 1999. He has been involved in renewal projects of the distribution automation system and control center and contributed to different European ICT: FENIX (VPP), ADDRESS (Demand Respons), OPENNODE(New RTU). Member of the WG10 and WG17 of the (IEC TC57), he is task leader of the new IEC 61850 Technical Specification of the Smart Grid Device Management System. He has a degree of Electrical Engineering and Industrial computing. He is currently Research engineer and Project manager in Network Automation Systems at EDF R&D.

Interconnection and Interoperability for DER and Microgrids

Dmitry Ishchenko

ABB (US)

Distributed Energy Resources (DER) interconnection requirements are defined globally in the European Grid Codes that have been recently enforced in the IEC space, and the IEEE 1547 series of standards for North America. Currently the IEEE 1547 Standard is undergoing a major revision that will introduce several significant changes. Particularly, the updated Standard defines multiple performance categories for voltage regulation, reactive power capabilities, as well as both voltage and frequency disturbance ride-through characteristics. It also introduces the point of applicability concept for compliance with the specified performance metrics, either at the DER point of interconnection or point of common coupling of a local area electric power system that may typically include several DER units. Additionally, the standard for the first time in the IEEE 1547 series introduces interoperability concept in order to enable the utilities to remotely adjust DER performance characteristics. Unintentional islanding operation is prohibited by the revised Standard, but on the other hand, intentional islanding is permitted in some cases even when mandatory voltage and/or frequency trip requirements are met, thus effectively enabling microgrid operation. It should be noted however, that the ride-through requirements specified may not be falsely inhibited by anti-islanding detection of unintentional islands when an actual unintentional island condition does not exist. In view of this implementation of reliable anti-islanding detection schemes for DER systems becomes critical. Additionally, the IEEE has been working on the standard for functional specification and testing of microgrid control systems, known as IEEE P2030.7/P2030.8 series. These standards specify the core requirements for microgrid control system and define performance criteria and metrics for testing microgrid controllers. This presentation will offer a perspective on the quickly evolving DER integration/microgrid related standards in the IEEE space as well as highlight similarities and differences with the ongoing work in IEC TC 57 Working Group 17 on DER integration.

Synchrophasor Measurement and Standards Development

Ken Martin

Electric Power Group (US)

Abstract

 

Standardization can both promote development and encourage adoption of new technology. The first synchrophasor standard, IEEE 1344-1995, was developed for this reason, soon after phasor measurement equipment was first demonstrated in the early 1990’s. The concepts and system requirements were not established at that time, so the standard had a number of gaps. Following the 1996 WSCC blackout in Western United States, phasor measurement systems were quickly developed to provide better analysis and another way to monitor the power system. The advances in phasor measurements provided through these efforts contributed greatly to the IEEE C37.118-2005 standard which included both a method to evaluate measurement performance and an efficient way to communicate the measurements. This monumental standard has been split into a measurement standard and a communication standard, principally to promote compatibility with IEC standards. The measurement standard was expanded to include measurement under dynamic operating conditions and frequency and rate of change of frequency. This standard is currently being revised as IEC/IEEE 60255-118-1. This lecture will trace the development of these standards, discuss the most current activities, and provide some of the background for the choices made by the working groups.
