2030.4 - Guide for Control and Automation Installations Applied to the Electric Power Infrastructure

Because components of Smart Grid will be acquired and developed by many different parties, the control and automation systems should be developed according to an open architecture that enables the introduction of common functions across multiple systems and platforms in a way that achieves high levels of modularity, extensibility, portability and scalability. This guide provides industry-wide common approaches to the design, implementation and life cycle management of SmartGrid control and automation systems, in a manner that promotes conformance to the smart grid interoperability reference model (SGIRM), hence reducing the number of infrastructures that might otherwise result from competing architectures. Additionally, this recommended practice facilitates the following: Modular design and design description, Reusable application software, Interoperable control and automation applications, Secure information exchange, Life cycle affordability, and Competition and collaboration.This guide supports its users by giving them guidance in the selection or development of computational capabilities,information systems, networks, protocols, frameworks, middleware, resource management, software and operating systems,using both established and evolving industry standards. Standard practices will be leveraged to enhance interoperability, operational effectiveness, and the ability to insert future technologies.
