[Legacy Report] IEEE Distinguised Programme - Seminar on Smart Grid Standards


The worldwide demand for renewable energy has sparked a high interest in wind turbines, solar panels and other similar sources of electric power.
In turn, the decentralized nature of such power sources requires a new approach to grid control to be developed in contrast to the traditional power grid based on comparatively large power generation units.
To ensure both stability of such a grid as well as compatibility between grid components, standardization bodies have in recent years therefore begun to develop standards for the Smart Grid, an intelligent monitoring and control system based on distributed power sources located at both the higher and lower hierarchical levels of the grid such as households.
The seminar on Smart Grid Standards has been established to provide members of IEEE in Denmark and other interested parties to get acquainted with the ongoing work on Smart Grid Standards, which takes place within IEEE’s Standards Agency in the fields of grid monitoring, control and communication.
The IEEE Power and Energy Danish Chapter has succeeded in getting a lecturer working at IEEE’s standards agency in the US to speak about current and future IEEE Smart Grid Standards.
As standardization is carried out internationally by other institutions as well, the lecturer has been requested also to include an overview of related work carried out elsewhere and of IEEE’s cooperation with such institutions, e.g., with ETSI and the IEC.
In order to cast light on the demands for standardization, representatives from the Danish National IT and Telecom Agency and from different Danish industrial parties have also been invited to present intentions and plans for Smart Grid developments in Denmark.

The Distinguished Lecturer (DL) covers current and future standards on:

• General overview of IEEE Standardization Areas.
• Overview of current and future IEEE Smart Grid Standards on Network Topology, Cooperation with other standardization bodies worldwide.
• Standard(s) on Smart Grid Time Constants
