committee, which manages
a working group for P825 —
Meshing Smart Grid Interoperability Standards to Enable
Transactive Energy Networks.
When complete, P825, rather than being a full standard,
will provide TE guidelines.
“We decided to develop a
guide because TE is still in
its early stages of develop-
ment, and we think there’s
some fexibility needed there,”
Chandler said. “The purpose
of the guide will be to devel-
op a common approach to all
of the abstracted components
necessary in order to develop
TE systems for modern usage.”
Chandler said the guide will leverage existing standards for
interconnection and communication protocols to help with the
development of interoperability features necessary for TE systems.
The guide will help identify “what interoperability standards
would be required in order to have conformity in the intercon-
nection and leverage any communication protocol that might be
used,” he said, noting that there are many communication proto-
cols available now to effect TE system communications.
The guide will outline the options for TE systems, and make
recommendations for how to think about those options, he said.
According to Chandler, the working group, which was offcially
formed earlier this year, is planning to release the guide in 2019.
Chandler also has been instrumental in the efforts to further
defne TE systems as a participant in the U.S. Department of Com-
merce National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST)
Transactive Energy Modeling and Simulation Challenge for the
Smart Grid (TE Challenge).
