The First International Standard Project of the Internet of Things in Electricity was initiated, led by CEPRI

Recently, after the discussion and voting of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers' New Standards Committee (IEEE NesCom), "Guide for the Technical Specifications for Smart Distribution Transformer Terminal" led by State Grid Corporation of China was officially approved for as a new project with the number IEEE P2815. CEPRI will be the technical leader of the standard. Tianjin University, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Schneider Electric Co., Ltd. and many other domestic and foreign companies will participate in the development of the standard. It is scheduled to be completed and released within two years.

As the company's first international standard in the field of the IoT in Electricity, the standard aims to promote the deep integration of power industrial control system and Internet system in the field of power distribution. Its successful initiation marks that the IoT in Electricity technology has been recognized internationally, and it is of great significance to expand the international influence of the company's advanced power distribution management technology.

Based on the design of the Internet of Things architecture, the smart distribution terminal adopts a new design idea of “platform-based hardware and APP-based software", and meets the information processing and decision-making needs of the distribution area in different scenarios with the edge calculation method, thus solving the problems of the difficult application expansion of the traditional terminal due to the non-platform-based design and the tight coupling of software and hardware, as well as the high cost of operation and maintenance.

The standard proposes the technical requirements for smart terminals deployed at distribution transformers in aspects of environmental, power, communication and information exchange interfaces, firmware and software platforms, etc., and regulates the management of the whole process of the manufacture, inspection, use and acceptance of smart distribution terminals, ensuring that the power distribution Internet of Things is practically implemented and meeting the rapidly growing demand for new services such as grid-connected distributed power generation and energy storage regulation.
