IEEE 2030.5-2018 - IEEE Approved Draft Standard for Smart Energy Profile Application Protocol

Description: This standard defines the 'APPLICATION' layer with TCP/IP providing functions in the 'TRANSPORT' and 'INTERNET' layers to enable utility management of the end user energy environment, including demand response, load control, time of day pricing, management of distributed generation, electric vehicles, etc. Depending on the physical layer in use (e.g., IEEE 4 802.15.4, IEEE 802.11, IEEE 1901, IEEE 1901.2), a variety of lower layer protocols may be involved in providing a complete solution. Generally, lower layer protocols are not discussed in this standard except where there is direct interaction with the application protocol. This standard defines the mechanisms for exchanging application messages, the exact messages exchanged including error messages, and the security features used to protect the application messages. With respect to the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) network model, this standard is built using the four layer Internet stack model. The defined application profile sources elements from many existing standards, including IEC 61968 [61968] and IEC 61850 [61850], and follows a RESTful architecture [REST] using IETF protocols such as HTTP.
