6.3 Smart Grid Reference Architecture

Course subject(s) Module 6: ICT & infrastructures


As we have seen, smart grids not only mean the integration of  ICT  but also multiple stakeholders, multiple applications and multiple networks that need to interoperate. This can only be achieved if those who will develop the smart grid (and in particular its standards) can rely on an agreed set of models allowing description and prescription to ensure an integrated secure, reliable and high-performance network.

The  so called ‘CEN/CENELEC/ETSI Joint Working Group report on standards for smart grids’  is responsible for defining this standards, also called ‘Reference Architecture. This is their ‘work in progress’ report. In chapter7 you will find the SGAM as presented by professor Geert Deconick from KU Leuven.
