Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP) meets in September 2010

The next face-to-face meeting of the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP) will be held in St. Louis (MO) on September 14-16, 2010.

IEC 61850 and IEC 61400-25 will be an issue in PAP 16 (Wind Power) and several other PAPs. A joint meeting of PAPs that deal with these standards is planned. There are several areas in which the various application domains need consistent information models for real-time information exchange. E.g., for the interface between power generation and control center. There is a first standard available: IEC 61400-25-2 that defines two logical nodes - one for active power control and one for reactive power control.

These could be used as a basis for further work in other domains. I guess there is a need for a common core model that may have special data for the various resources like wind, hydro, CHP, PV, ...

Karlheinz Schwarz (Editor of IEC 61850 and IEC 61400-25) will be in St. Louis on September 15 and 16.

The IEC TC 57 WG 17 (DER) will meet in Montreal, Canada, on September 27-29, 2010. Experts from WG 19 invite interested experts for a one day workshop on IEC 61850.
