Dick Deblasio, A Lifetime IEEE Member and Chairman of IEEE’s P2030 Smart Grid Interoperability Working Group wrote a terrific article on the Smart Grid on Intelligent Utility this week. He highlights some of his group’s activity as a “Missing Link” effort in the creation of the Smart Grid, stressing the importance of interconnection and intra-facing frameworks and strategies as key to success.
This is why interconnection and intra-facing frameworks and strategies with design definitions have been key areas of focus for the IEEE’s P2030 Working Group. Formed in March 2009, the working group is creating a knowledge base addressing terminology, characteristics, functional performance and evaluation criteria, and the application of engineering principles for smart grid interoperability of the electric power system with end-use applications and loads. The guide is intended to inform the creation and/or enhancement of interconnection standards.
