Documentary Standards Update: Smart Grid
Dr. George Arnold

The presenter describes Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP) as follows: 1) 573 member organizations, with 1,558 member representatives; 2) Architecture and Testing/Certification Committees formed; 3) Process for hand-offs of requirements to SDOs established; 4) Project management process in place; 5) Priority Action Plans (mostly) on target; 6) Second draft of NIST IR 7628 (Cyber Security Guidelines for Smart Grid) published for public review. SGIP’s International engagement involves; 1) ISO, IEC, ITU-T, IETF participating in SGIP; 2) Extensive interaction with Japan; 3) Bilateral engagements with EU, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Korea, China, Australia; 4) Partnering with DOE on a multi-lateral intergovernmental International Smart Grid Action Network.

Smart Grid’s Major Issues/Challenges are as follows: 1) Contention around standards for customer access to energy usage information; 2) Home Area Network interaction with the Smart Grid; 3) Competing EV standards for rapid charging; 4) Defining sound architectural principles for SG – just beginning, but needed yesterday. Potential overlaps emerging among IEEE, IEC, ITU-T, ETSI in developing architecture documents; 5) Ensuring security aspects are considered at every level; 6) Stability issues as the grid decentralizes and loads and generation behave differently – research topic; 7) Architectural extension of “Smart Grid” to “Smart Infrastructure.”
