German E-Energy Roadmap for Smart Grid published

The 70+ page Roadmap of the German E-Energy Projects and German Standardization organizations has been published the other day.

The Roadmap contains many recommendations on how to use existing standards and how to improve or extend those standards. According to the German Federal Minister of Economics and Technology "it is the task now to ascertain the extend to which these approaches can be implemented". He wishes the Roadmap many readers and users.

The Roadmap refers some 50 times to IEC 61850 - IEC 61850 is one of the very crucial standards for Smart Grids. IEC 61850 is likely THE standard that will be used in many domains outside the electrical world. The new edition of the information models (IEC 61850-7-4) contain many new Logical Nodes like STMP (Supervisory of temperatures) that can be used wherever a temperature is to be monitored for limit violation (alarm and trip): in a factory, building, power plant, ship, ...

IEC 61850 is a single standard for many application domains. More to come. Stay tuned.
