UU 102 - Using Standard Communication Protocols for the Grid of Today and Managing Distributed Energy Resources in the Future 


Room 209, Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center; San Antonio, TX 

Start Time

1/22/2018 8:00 AM 

End Time

1/22/2018 5:00 PM 


This course provides background on standard communication protocols used for SCADA and DER applications in the grid. The widely adopted IEC 61850 and DNP3 standards and emerging protocols IEEE 2030.5 and OpenADR will be discussed.   A high-level view of how the protocols function will be provided along with a discussion of use cases, data modeling and mapping for each protocol. In addition, MESA, SunSpec, and other standards for DER integration will be addressed.  The challenges of DER and distribution automation communications will be covered including use cases, requirements, and evaluation of each protocol against the requirements. The objectives are to understand the basics of how the protocols work, where and why the protocols are used. For each of these protocols being used for standardization of communications, the attendees should gain a general understanding of data transfer mechanisms, messages and commands, supported data types, protocol layers and security features.
