SEP2 - Smart Energy Profile 2.0
|Working Group Chair||
|IEEE Program Manager|
This Standard defines an application profile which provides an interface between the smart grid and users. It enables management of the end user energy environment, including demand response, load control, price communication, distributed generation, energy storage, and electric vehicles as well as the support of additional commodities including water, natural gas, and steam. 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. This standard focuses on a variety of possible architectures and usage models including direct communications between a service provider and consumers/prosumers, communications within a premises or home area network (HAN), and communications between a service provider and an aggregator. Lastly, this Standard sources elements from many existing standards, including IEC 61968 and IEC 61850, and follows a RESTful architecture utilizing widely adopted protocols such as TCP/IP and HTTP. In addition it supports all of the needs of IEEE 1547-2018 This revision maintains backwards compatibility with IEEE 2030.5-2018 while providing an expanded feature set.
The 'APPLICATION' layer with TCP/IP providing functions in the 'TRANSPORT' and 'INTERNET' layers is defined in this standard. Depending on the physical layer in use (e.g., IEEE 802.15.4(TM), IEEE 802.11(TM), IEEE 1901(TM)), 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 a 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 OSI network model, this standard is built using the four-layer Internet stack model. The defined application protocol is an IEC 61968 common information model  profile, mapping directly where possible, and using subsets and extensions where needed, and follows an IETF RESTful architecture [REST].
