Power systems management and associated information exchange
|TC 57||WG 13||J. Britton||DELPUB||2013-05|
IEC 61970-456:2013 defines the subset of classes, class attributes, and roles from the CIM necessary to describe the result of state estimation, power flow and other similar applications that produce a steady-state solution of a power network, under a set of use cases which are included informatively in this standard. This standard is intended for two distinct audiences, data producers and data recipients, and may be read from those two perspectives. From the standpoint of model export software used by a data producer, the standard describes how a producer may describe an instance of a network case in order to make it available to some other program. From the standpoint of a consumer, the standard describes what that importing software must be able to interpret in order to consume solution cases.
