scope:

This document provides standards users with guidelines to select a most appropriate set of standards/specifications (either existing or coming, from IEC but possibly coming from other bodies) fulfilling the set of Smart Energy use cases, then relevant for Smart Energy project implementation.

It provides a summary of the core standards which form the pillars of the Smart Energy standards set.

Then the main areas of Smart Grid are investigated. The structure of this document has evolved in order to embrace the full scope of Smart Grids.

A new first area introduces the general IEC framework.

Then standards are presented, following these main guidelines:

- standards in relation with electrotechnics (planning the grid, integrating DER, coping with power electronics, coping with DC grids, and impact on the low voltage installations).

- standards related to communicating systems, divided into nineteen sections: generation management systems, FACTS, energy management systems, blackout prevention systems, advanced distribution management systems, distribution automation systems, smart substation automation systems, distributed energy resources operation systems, advanced meter infrastructure, meter-related back office systems, market place systems, demand response and load management systems, HBES/BACS systems, industrial automation systems, electrical storage management systems, electro-mobility systems, weather forecast systems, asset management and condition monitoring systems, microgrid systems.

- standards which cover cross-cutting areas such as communication, data modelling, cybersecurity, authentication, authorization, accounting, clock management, EMC, power quality, functional safety.

Annexes provide

- tables which indicate for each standard its main area of use;

- an overview of the core IEC standards;

- references to known Smart Grid/Smart Energy roadmaps provided by some regional bodies.

In total, this document identifies over 500 relevant standards/specifications and/or standard parts for the considered domain. Five electrotechnical domains, nineteen specific systems and nine cross-cutting topics have been analysed.

Purpose of the document

The importance of these standards will vary in their relation to Smart Energy applications and solutions. A number of standards form a core set of standards, which are valid or necessary for nearly all Smart Energy applications. These standards will be considered as IEC priority standards. Their further promotion and development will be a key for the IEC to provide support for Smart Energy solutions. (See also http://www.iec.ch/smartgrid/standards/).

Besides these IEC priority standards, the goal will also be to provide an overview of the IEC standards specifically capable of serving as a base for Smart Energy. The objective is that the collection should be comprehensive and also provide an overview of all the standardization involved.

Furthermore, not only does the roadmap consider the available standards but also the coming ones (see in 5.2.5 the triggers attached to these definitions "available" and "coming"). With this the IEC will provide a necessary precondition for Smart Energy to become widely accepted by the market. Since Smart Energy investments are long-term investments, it is absolutely necessary to provide the stakeholders with a needed vision as a basis for a sustainable future investment.

A specific focus is put on interoperability standards, which will help to reach the goal of increased observability and controllability of the power system. In this respect the IEC offers the absolute precondition for a further promotion of Smart Grid. It offers as well the conditions for profiling the usage of these standards and then improves the interoperability as explained in 5.6. On the other hand, the IEC refrains from standardization of solutions or applications itself. This would actually block innovation and the further development of Smart Energy.

Even if standards from other Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) are not the main focus of this roadmap, they are part of the complete story, and so need to be included.

The IEC acknowledges the vast literature and documentation which is already available on the Smart Grid topic and, to a far lesser extent, also on the standardization of Smart Energy (some documents are identified in Annex C and in the Bibliography [5][6][7][8]).
