Smart Grid Semantic Model

Smart Grid Semantic Model

  • Communication among devices in different smart grid domains
  • Semantic models and canonical data models
  • Minimize the chances of an unintended interpretation of a piece of information

Models can facilitate information transfer between smart grid devices

Some of the most challenging smart grid situations involve the exchange of information across multiple domains (markets, operations, service providers, bulk generation, transmission, distribution, and customers) and among devices and subsystems of diverse complexity. Not only do these types of use cases rely on interoperable communications between such devices, they also rely on the proper configuration and access through several ownership and management boundaries.

This white paper describes the use of semantic models and canonical data models (CDMs) as a means of facilitating interoperability across such smart grid collaborations.
