Integrating distribution system operator system landscapes
- 177 Downloads
With efforts to establish smart energy systems (SES), distribution system operators (DSO) have seen technological and political challenges, which will require fundamental changes towards their operational and organizational structures as well as their underlying information system landscapes. We propose a model-based approach for integrating the system landscapes of DSOs in order to establish SES and utilize domain-wide standards. For this, we define a middleware architecture, which utilizes the Common Information Model (CIM) and assists DSO system landscape migration from system landscapes employing application-specific interfaces towards system landscapes employing application-independent interfaces.
