CIM CGMES applications in research projects for DER
Presentation held at CIM Users Group Meeting 2017, June 13-15, 2017, Herzogenaurach, Germany
Since the utilization of decentralized renewable energy sources in distribution grids for the supply of ancillary service becomes more and more important, there is a need of coordinating and exchange large amounts of data. This data can be topological or asset data, as well as measurements from the field. Harnessing these different kinds of data is one important step towards a new energy system. The solution needs to be scalable and transformable. Due to these reasons we applied the CIM CGMES data model in research projects and related simulations. We build a field test demonstrator which consist of a CGMES database and utilize REST service in order to communicate between database and optimization modules via an ESB. In order to test this demonstrator, we build a CIM CGMES interface for our real time co-simulation environment (OpSim) which delivers process measurements from a simulated distribution grid.
