IEC SRD 62913-2-1 2019 (E) initiates and illustrates the IEC’s systems approach based on Use Cases and involving the identification of generic smart grid requirements for further standardization work for grid related domains – i.e. grid management regrouping: transmission grid management, distribution grid management, microgrids and smart substation automation domains – based on the methods and tools developed in IEC SRD 62913-1.
The Grid management domain groups Use Cases and associated requirements common to the EHV, HV and MV/LV networks operations and the business analysis of the general electric network life cycle. Use Cases specific to parts of the general electric network are described in transmission grid management, distribution grid management, microgrids and smart substation automation clauses.
This document captures possible “common and repeated usage” of a smart grid system, under the format of “Use Cases” with a view to feeding further standardization activities. Use Cases can be described in different ways and can represent competing alternatives. From there, this document derives the common requirements to be considered by these further standardization activities in term of interfaces between actors interacting with the given system.
To this end, Use Case implementations are given for information purposes only. The interface requirements to be considered for later standardization activities are summarized (typically information pieces, communication services and specific non-functional requirements: performance level, security specification, etc.).
