Application integration at electric utilities – System interfaces for distribution management – Part 1: Interface architecture and general recommendations
International Electrotechnical Commission / 30-Oct-2012 / 137 pages
IEC 61968-1:2012 is the first part in a series that, taken as a whole, define interfaces for the major elements of an interface architecture for distribution management. This International Standard identifies and establishes recommendations for standard interfaces based on an Interface Reference Model (IRM). Subsequent clauses of this standard are based on each interface identified in the IRM. This set of standards is limited to the definition of interfaces. They provide for interoperability among different computer systems, platforms, and languages. Methods and technologies used to implement functionality conforming to these interfaces are recommended in IEC 61968-100. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous one:
– update of IRM table which has been out of date;
– addition of missing Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) related functions;
– alignment with newly released IEC documents;
– alignment with IEC 61968-100; update of annexes.
