The ERIGrid consortium is organising a webinar “ICT standards for smart grids: IEC 61850, CIM and their implementation in the ERIGrid project” on 23 March 2018 at 10:00 – 11:30 CET.

One of the research activities of the ERIGrid project deals with the remote interconnection of research infrastructures for the purpose of performing online joint distributed tests and build a Virtual Research Infrastructure (VRI). The realisation of complex systems like this requires the integration of a lot of systems.  In such a complex context it is not enough to manage big data and/or specify new communication protocols: a global approach is needed, by increasing the value of “data” through a description of their meaning. The IEC 61850 and CIM standards have been developed in the electrical energy sector to enable this approach.

This webinar will focus on the following topics:

  • ICT interoperability in smart grids
  • IEC 61850 and CIM
  • Open source implementations in the ERIGrid project

Presenters and contributors:
