Electricity metering data exchange - The DLMS/COSEM suite - Part 8-5: Narrow-band OFDM G3-PLC communication profile for neighbourhood networks

This part of IEC 62056 specifies the IEC 62056 DLMS/COSEM communication profile for
metering purposes based on the Recommendations ITU-T G.9901: Narrowband orthogonal
frequency division multiplexing power line communication transceivers – Power spectral
density specification and ITU-T G.9903:2014, Narrowband orthogonal frequency division
multiplexing power line communication transceivers for G3-PLC networks, an Orthogonal
Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) Power Line Communications (PLC) protocol.
The physical layer provides a modulation technique that efficiently utilizes the allowed
bandwidth within the CENELEC A (3 kHz – 95 kHz), CENELEC B (95 kHz – 125 kHz), ARIB
(10 kHz – 450 kHz) and FCC (no specific frequency band limitations) bands, thereby allowing
the use of advanced channel coding techniques. This enables a robust communication in the
presence of narrowband interference, impulsive noise, and frequency selective attenuation.
The medium access control (MAC) layer allows the transmission of MAC frames through the
use of the power line physical channel. It provides data services, frame validation control,
node association and secure services.
The 6LoWPAN adaptation sublayer enables an efficient interaction between the MAC and the
IPv6 network layer. The use of the IPv6 network protocol – the latest generation of IP
protocols – opens a wide range of potential applications and services for metering purposes
(but the applications are not limited to metering).
The transport layer, the application layer and the data model are as specified in the
IEC 62056 DLMS/COSEM suite.
The scope of this communication profile standard is restricted to aspects concerning the use
of communication protocols in conjunction with the COSEM data model and the
DLMS/COSEM application layer. Data structures specific to a communication protocol are out
of the scope of this communication profile standard.
NOTE They are specified in the specific protocol standards.
Any project specific definitions of data structures and data contents may be provided in
project specific companion specifications.

Izmenjava podatkov pri merjenju električne energije - Niz DLMS/COSEM - 8-5. del: Ozkopasovni OFDM G3-PLC komunikacijski profil za sosednje mreže

Ta del standarda IEC 62056 določa komunikacijski profil IEC 62056 DLMS/COSEM za namene merjenja na podlagi priporočil ITU-T G.9901: Narrowband orthogonal frequency division multiplexing power line communication transceivers – Power spectral density specification in priporočil ITU-T G.9903:2014, Narrowband orthogonal frequency division multiplexing power line communication transceivers for G3-PLC networks, protokola za ortogonalno frekvenčno multipleksiranje (OFDM) za komunikacije prek elektroenergetskih vodov (PLC). Fizična plast zagotavlja način modulacije, ki učinkovito uporablja dovoljeno pasovno širino v pasovih CENELEC A (3 kHz–95 kHz), CENELEC B (95 kHz–125 kHz), ARIB (10 kHz–450 kHz) in FCC (brez določenih omejitev frekvenčnega pasu), kar omogoča uporabo naprednih tehnik kodiranja kanala. To omogoča zanesljivo komunikacijo v prisotnosti ozkopasovnih elektromagnetnih motenj, impulznega hrupa in slabljenju signala na določenih frekvencah.
Plast krmiljenja dostopa do medija (MAC) omogoča prenos okvirov MAC na podlagi uporabe fizičnega kanala prek elektroenergetskih vodov. Zagotavlja podatkovne storitve, preverjanje okvirjev, povezovanje vozlišč in varne storitve. Prilagoditvena podplast 6LoWPAN omogoča učinkovito interakcijo med plastjo MAC in omrežno plastjo IPv6. Uporaba omrežnega protokola IPv6 – zadnje generacije protokolov IP – omogoča uporabo širokega nabora možnih aplikacij in storitev za namene merjenja, pri čemer aplikacije niso omejene samo na merjenje.
Transportna plast, aplikacijska plast in podatkovni model so opredeljeni v skupini standardov IEC 62056 DLMS/COSEM.
Področje uporabe tega standarda za komunikacijske profile je omejeno na uporabo komunikacijskih protokolov v povezavi s podatkovnim modelom COSEM in aplikacijsko plastjo DLMS/COSEM. Podatkovne strukture, značilne za določen komunikacijski protokol, ne spadajo na področje uporabe tega standarda za komunikacijski profil.
OPOMBA: Podatkovne strukture so opredeljene v standardih za posamezne protokole.
Morebitne definicije podatkovnih struktur in vsebine podatkov za posamezen projekt so lahko vključene v spremljevalnih specifikacijah za posamezen projekt.

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.

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) draws attention to the fact that it is

claimed that compliance with this International Standard may involve the use of a

maintenance service concerning the stack of protocols on which the present standard

IEC 62056-8-5 is based.

The IEC takes no position concerning the evidence, validity and scope of this maintenance

service.

INTRODUCTION
As defined in IEC 62056-1-0, the IEC 62056 DLMS/COSEM suite provides specific

communication profile standards for communication media relevant for smart metering.

Such communication profile standards specify how the COSEM data model and the

DLMS/COSEM application layer can be used on the lower, communication media-specific

protocol layers.

Communication profile standards refer to communication standards that are part of the

IEC 62056 DLMS/COSEM suite or to any other open communication standard.

This International Standard specifies the DLMS/COSEM communication profile for ITU-

T G.9903:2014 PLC communication based on OFDM technology.
ITU-T G.9903 PLC is designed to meet the following aims:

• Robustness: the communication profile shall be suited to severe powerline environments

(see 5.3.2);

• Performance and scalability: it embeds adaptive modulation to use the proper modulation

according to the quality of the link (see 5.3.2) within dense environments (up to

2 000 nodes in the same PAN);
• Security: it shall offer a secure environment (see 7.4);

• Openness: it shall be based on open standards in order to support multi-supplier solutions

(see Clause 5);

• Flexibility and future proof: it shall be able to support future applications through using

IPv6 networking capabilities (see 5.3.4).
This standard follows the rules defined in IEC 62056-5-3:2017, Annex A.

ELECTRICITY METERING DATA EXCHANGE –
THE DLMS/COSEM SUITE –
Part 8-5: Narrow-band OFDM G3-PLC communication profile
for neighbourhood networks
1 Scope

This part of IEC 62056 specifies the IEC 62056 DLMS/COSEM communication profile for

metering purposes based on the Recommendations ITU-T G.9901: Narrowband orthogonal

frequency division multiplexing power line communication transceivers – Power spectral

density specification and ITU-T G.9903:2014, Narrowband orthogonal frequency division

multiplexing power line communication transceivers for G3-PLC networks, an Orthogonal

Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) Power Line Communications (PLC) protocol.

The physical layer provides a modulation technique that efficiently utilizes the allowed

bandwidth within the CENELEC A (3 kHz – 95 kHz), CENELEC B (95 kHz – 125 kHz), ARIB

(10 kHz – 450 kHz) and FCC (no specific frequency band limitations) bands, thereby allowing

the use of advanced channel coding techniques. This enables a robust communication in the

presence of narrowband interference, impulsive noise, and frequency selective attenuation.

The medium access control (MAC) layer allows the transmission of MAC frames through the

use of the power line physical channel. It provides data services, frame validation control,

node association and secure services.

The 6LoWPAN adaptation sublayer enables an efficient interaction between the MAC and the

IPv6 network layer. The use of the IPv6 network protocol – the latest generation of IP

protocols – opens a wide range of potential applications and services for metering purposes

(but the applications are not limited to metering).

The transport layer, the application layer and the data model are as specified in the

IEC 62056 DLMS/COSEM suite.

The scope of this communication profile standard is restricted to aspects concerning the use

of communication protocols in conjunction with the COSEM data model and the

DLMS/COSEM application layer. Data structures specific to a communication protocol are out

of the scope of this communication profile standard.
NOTE They are specified in the specific protocol standards.

Any project specific definitions of data structures and data contents may be provided in

project specific companion specifications.
