The fast growth of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) is leading to new challenges in managing traditional transmission and distribution in tandem with DER generation, electric vehicles, and demand response. Communication technology is evolving to meet new requirements for adding DER in a highly scalable and reliable way. Triangle MicroWorks Inc. will be one of the speakers at IEEE PES T&D Conference covering the latest trends in integrating DER into the grid.

In this tutorial, a broad overview of several communication protocols will be discussed. You will gain perspective on common use cases for traditional SCADA protocols and emerging DER related protocols. Also, the course will highlight how requirements for DER are unique compared to traditional SCADA. The objectives are to cover the basics of how each of the protocols function along with explaining why each protocol is suited for different purposes. Attendees will learn data transfer mechanisms, messages and commands, supported data types, protocol layers and security features.

Course Topics

  • SCADA and DER communications requirements and use cases.
  • Overview of SCADA protocols (DNP3 and IEC 61850).
  • Overview of DER protocols (IEEE 2030.5 and OpenADR).
  • DER landscape including IEEE 1547 and CA Rule 21.

Who Should attend this course?

  • Engineers, IT personnel and managers responsible for SCADA or DER integration projects.
  • System integrators involved in SCADA or DER integration.
  • Product managers for smart grid, SCADA or DER products and services.
  • Software developers implementing communications for SCADA or DER integration.
