  1. 1. Business-IT Alignment, Business Process Transformation(BPX), Services Oriented, Automated Metering Infrastructure, Architectural Services (SOA), and SOA Industrialization service Implementing A Smart Grid using DATAPOWER Solutions for the Utilities Industry David B White Florida & Georgia Region - Business Development Manager Miracle Software Inc. 1107 SW 23rd St Cape Coral, Fl 33991 Home Office 239-458-2592 Cell Direct 239-333-5641 Cell Georgia 770-508-8259 email dwhite@miraclesoft.com website w3.miraclesoft.com
  2. 2. Converging market forces are driving utilities to seek new approaches and business models ... driving investment and innovation Regulatory & Policy Financial Mkts Security Expectations Escalating Energy / Customer Fuel Costs Expectations Technological Aging Assets / Advancements Aging Workforce Environment These forces are increasing the need for greater network reliability, efficiency, flexibility and “observability” ... creating the necessity for the Intelligent Utility Network
  3. 3. Industry Standards to make integration with utility business systems easier • Many disparate systems speaking different protocols • Legacy systems and mergers increase complexity – Do not want to replace systems – Must provide flexibility to work with other systems • Both Industry Standards, EAI and BPI are necessary to integrate systems – Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) allows connections at application and data level – Business Process Integration (BPI) enables business logic to support processes – EAI and BPI together enable Business Performance Management (BPM) – Industry specific standards enable EAI, BPI, and BPM to be leveraged for niche critical applications extending integration throughout the enterprise. Standards and middleware improve integration efforts – Common data and service standards help systems talk the same language – Enterprise middleware provides a logical separation between business logic and data integration
  4. 4. International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Standards • Technical Committee 57 (TC57) is responsible for the development of a set of model-driven standards for the operations side of energy utilities: – Communications Protocols: • IEC60870-6 Telecontrol Application Service Elements #2 (TASE.2) – Time critical data exchange between utility control centers for ensuring transmission system reliability – Control center to power plant for economic dispatch • IEC61850 for substation automation – Object oriented protocol for intelligent electronic devices – Integration: • IEC61970 Common Information Model (CIM) for power systems • IEC61970 Generic Interface Definition (GID) integration APIs and services • IEC61968 CIM and XML messaging for distribution automation
  5. 5. Energy & Utility Standards for Integration • Provide a common agreement on What data is exchanged – The Common Information Model (CIM) • Provide a common agreement on Services to exchange the data • The Generic Interface Definition (GID) The benefits of using CIM and GID: • Access to the vendors, applications, sensors, and the general plant environment that can be connected to the IBM Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) via off-the-shelf adapters. • A service oriented adapter can be fed with data from hundreds of devices and applications with little or no investment or development. • Object model abstractions organize the data and give structure to the service actions that are invoked from business applications to provide the consistent integration method needed to build off-the-shelf adapters. • Adaptor approach follows industry standards.
  6. 6. Solution Architecture for Energy & Utilities (SAFE) allows E&Us to become an “on-demand” enterprise SAFE is an architectural blueprint Scalable framework Utilizes open standards - component choice freedom and flexibility Supports latest software technology advances Leverages cross industry and E&U best practices Doing it faster – speeding design, development, deployment and on-going operations of customer’s solution Protects customer investment Embraces customer’s leadership applications with middleware infrastructure Product integration enables interchangeable components and easier migration Supports Service Orientated Architecture (SOA) - integrating web services and external process engines Implementation can be staged as needed
  7. 7. Common Information Model (CIM) is an object-oriented information model of the power system • Central Generating Step-Up Station Transformer Distribution Receiving Distribution Gas Substation Turbine Station Substation Recip Engine Distribution Micro- turbine Substation Commercial Recip Fuel Engine cell Photo voltaics Cogeneration Batteries Flywheel Industrial Commercial Residential
  8. 8. Common Information Model (CIM) and Generic Interface Definition (GID) provide industry standard languages and interfaces for systems to communicate • The Common Information Model (CIM) for Energy and Utilities defines a utility industry standard object-model for development and integration of applications used for electric power systems integration. • Generic Interface Definition (GID) defines industry standard services for data exchange across the integration bus. CIM/GID Application Connector
  9. 9. IEC 61850 Substation Automation and CIM • The power system models of CIM and device models of IEC61850 intersect at the fundamental driver for most operational energy applications in the control center: MEASUREMENTS IEC61970/68 IEC61850 CIM Device Power Models System Models Measurements

  14. 14. The Utility Integration Bus (UIB) Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) for utilities The UIB leverages the capabilities of the IBM WebSphere SOA to enable application in operational applications to build a bridge between the business and operations in energy utilities. The UIB provides an environment for building off-the-shelf adapters using IBM WebSphere SOA technology that can be interfaced to operational applications and reused among multiple systems Standards based data models (CIM) Standards based interfaces and services (GID) CIM aware i
