In the energy domain, the smart grid is an important topic of discussion with regard to the challenges facing utilities. A smart grid can only be implemented with a smart IT solution, which will become critical for electricity transport and distribution. Relevant data becomes an asset to achieve this IT solution. The volume of data will increase as more measurements are received from more sensors and through the integration of more external data. Data management is critical to maintain control and can be achieved through standardisation of data exchange and harmonisation of data sources.

This one day training course will increase your understanding of the independent Common Information Model (CIM) for the utility industry in the standards IEC 61970, IEC 61968 and IEC 62325.

CIM provides data understanding through the identification of the relationships and associations of the data within a utility enterprise. This enhanced data understanding supports the exchange of data models and messages and improves the ability to integrate applications both within the enterprise and with trading partners. The CIM standards provide extensions and specifications that, when used in conjunction with the CIM models, provide a framework for the exchange of static models, transactional messages and full enterprise integration.
