Application integration at electric utilities - System interfaces for distribution management - Part 5: Distributed energy optimization

IEC 61968-5:2020 is the description of a set of functions that are needed for enterprise integration of DERMS functions. These exchanges are most likely between a DERMS and a DMS. However, since this is an enterprise integration standard which may leverage IEC 61968-100:2013 for application integration (using web services or JMS) or other loosely-coupled implementations, there are no technical limitations for systems with which a DERMS might exchange information. Also, it should be noted that a DERMS might communicate with individual DER using a variety of standards and protocols such as IEC 61850, IEEE 2030.5, Distribution Network Protocol (DNP), Sunspec Modbus, or perhaps Open Field Message Bus (OpenFMB). One role of the DERMS is to manage this disparity and complexity of communications on the behalf of the system operator. However, the communication to individual DER is out of scope of this standard. Readers should look to those standards to understand communication to individual DER’s smart inverter. The scope will be limited to the following use case categories: • DER group creation – a mechanism to manage DER in aggregate • DER group maintenance – a mechanism to add, remove, or modify the members and/or aggregated capabilities of a given group of DER • DER group deletion – removing an entire group • DER group status monitoring – a mechanism for quantifying or ascertaining the current capabilities and/or status of a group of DER • DER group forecast – a mechanism for predicting the capabilities and/or status of a group of DER for a given time period in the future • DER group dispatch – a mechanism for requesting that specified capabilities of a group of DER be dispatched to the grid • DER group voltage ramp rate control – a mechanism for requesting that a DER group following a ramp rate curve • DER group connect/disconnect – a mechanism to request that DER either isolate themselves, or reconnect to the grid as needed.

IEC 61968-5:2020 est la description d'un ensemble de fonctions indispensables à l'intégration par les entreprises des fonctions DERMS. Ces échanges sont les plus susceptibles d'avoir lieu entre un DERMS et un DMS. Toutefois, étant donné qu'une norme d'intégration par les entreprises peut s'appuyer sur l'IEC 61968 100:2013 pour l'intégration d'applications (par le biais de services web ou de la technologie JMS) ou d'autres implémentations faiblement couplées, les systèmes avec lesquels un DERMS peut échanger des informations ne font l'objet d'aucune limite technique. De même, il convient de noter qu'un DERMS peut communiquer avec une DER individuelle en utilisant une variété de normes et de protocoles comme l'IEC 61850, l'IEEE 2030.5, le protocole DNP (Distribution Network Protocol – Protocole de réseau de distribution), Sunspec Modbus, voire Open Field Message Bus (OpenFMB). Un rôle du DERMS consiste à gérer cette disparité et cette complexité des communications au nom de l'opérateur système. Toutefois, la communication avec la DER individuelle est hors du domaine d'application de la présente norme. Il convient que le lecteur consulte ces normes pour comprendre la communication avec l'onduleur intelligent d'une DER individuelle. Le domaine d'application est limité aux catégories de cas d'utilisation suivantes: • création de groupe de DER – mécanisme de gestion de DER en agrégat; • maintenance de groupe de DER – mécanisme d'ajout, de retrait ou de modification des membres et/ou capacités agrégées d'un groupe de DER donné; • suppression de groupe de DER – suppression d'un groupe entier; • surveillance du statut d'un groupe de DER – mécanisme de quantification ou de vérification des capacités réelles et/ou du statut d'un groupe de DER; • prévision de groupe de DER – mécanisme de prévision des capacités et/ou du statut d'un groupe de DER pour une période donnée ultérieure; • répartition de groupe de DER – mécanisme de demande de répartition des capacités spécifiées d'un groupe de DER sur le réseau; • contrôle du taux de rampe de tension du groupe de DER – mécanisme permettant de demander qu'un groupe de DER respecte la courbe de taux de rampe; • branchement/débranchement du groupe de DER – mécanisme permettant de demander que les DER s'isolent elles-mêmes ou se reconnectent au réseau, en fonction des besoins.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international

co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and

in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports,

Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as "IEC Publication(s)"). Their

preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with

may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising

with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for

Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence between

any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of patent

rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

INTRODUCTION

Technology advancements in various types of distributed energy resources (DER), have driven

increases in their evaluation and employment by utilities, consumers, and third parties. These

DER are often connected to the grid at the distribution level where their presence in large scale

or volume could be disruptive if not designed, integrated, and managed properly.

Inverters, the power converter circuits that integrate DER to the grid, are highly-capable devices

with fast power controls and no inherent inertia such that they can respond quickly to commands

and local conditions. Even small-scale inverters tend to have processing and memory resources

and can support a variety of communication protocols and advanced functions. Over the last

few years, industry efforts have defined a wide range of standard grid-supportive functions that

inverters may provide and standard communication protocols that allow these functions to be

remotely monitored and managed.

If these inverter capabilities can be properly exposed and integrated into traditional utility

system operations, high penetration DER can be transformed from problematic uncertainties to

beneficial tools for distribution management. To achieve these potential benefits, it needs to be

possible not just to communicate to individual DER devices using standard protocols, but also

for the systems that manage DER, referred to herein as DER Management System or "DERMS",

to effectively inform other software applications regarding the resources available and to

exchange information that allows the DER to be managed effectively. Additionally, due to scale

of some devices, to optimize the management of DER t
