Smart Grid


A U.S. National Policy


The 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA)
lays out a national policy for the Smart Grid in the U.S.


The Act assigned NIST the primary responsibility to coordinate
development of standards for the Smart Grid


NIST is also supporting future FERC and State PUC rulemaking
to adopt Smart Grid standards


The White House National Science and

Technology Council has established a

Smart Grid Subcommittee


The Subcommittee produced a report that

lays out the Administration’s policy on

Smart Grid


Key Federal policy recommendations:


Enable cost
-
effective smart grid investments


Unlock innovation


Empower and inform consumers


Secure the grid

VERVIEW


The Smart Grid Testing & Certification Committee (SGTCC) is a
standing committee of the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel
(SGIP)


SGTCC has developed a framework to enable industry testing
and certification programs for Smart Grid interoperability


SGTCC members are a diverse, elected group including
manufacturers, end users and test labs

TRUCTURE

AND

MAJOR

ACTIVITIES


Interoperability Process Reference Manual (IPRM)


Version 2 released in January 2012


IPRM Implementation


Supporting Interoperability Testing & Certification Authority (ITCA)
first adopters to integrate IPRM


Collaborating with industry accreditation organizations to support
independent assessments of ITCA programs


End to End Testing Initiative


Priority Activity for 2012


Developing use
-
case based testing methodologies to assure testing
consistency, quality and broad acceptance of results


Advocacy for Smart Grid Interop Testing

CTIVITIES


Work of the SGTCC End to End (E2E) Testing working group
will be a priority for 2012


Focused on a set of common use
-
cases that are a key part of
interoperability


An End to End Testing Document Template is complete


Provides consistent approach to test requirements and processes
across multiple technology domains


Piloting application of the template relative to selected use
-
cases


Collecting contributed utility use
-
case test to build test repository


Long term goal


consensus test programs yielding “tested
once, accepted everywhere”


E2E group planning a focused F2F meeting in February to
accelerate these efforts

The E2E test template is intended to provide a consistent
format for the development of detailed test approaches


Use case based


Defined requirements


i.e. what will the test accomplish?


Definition of test steps, equipment, metrics, reporting expectations


A Home Area Network device test plan was developed as a
pilot of the template

ETWORK

R
ELATIONSHIP


SGTCC view that the proposed test bed network
may complement its mission providing:


Test Case and Procedure development associated with
use cases and priority standards


Upfront research/development that leads to test
program creation where gaps currently exist


Identification of issues/gaps needing to be addressed by
testing


A neutral facility to assess testing issues in an unbiased
forum


SGTCC welcomes test bed network participants to
collaborate within our working groups!
