The objective of grid digitalization is to create substantial value in cost and resource savings, better quality, secure operations and improved safety, as well as accelerating the green transformation of energy systems. These objectives let system operator to change their roles, e.g., actively manage grids, and invest enormously related to electrification of industry and transport and renewable integration. Above all, the new arising tasks is to handle national and regional network data exchange to increase system interoperability and operational efficacy.
Common Information Model (CIM) becoming essential due to its methodology, which is defined by the International Electric Committee (IEC) in the standards IEC 61970, IEC 61968 and IEC 62325. Providing a single source of truth for network model planning and operation allows for collaboration, modelling and streamlining of information. It also makes it easy to apply business intelligence to capture more insights in the terms of asset management, cost-benefit analysis and system life cycle processes.
Some of the most prominent ways in which CIM is digitalizing the grid from design to completion are:
• CIM delivers visibility, collaboration and workflow efficiency
• CIM enables clients to pre- and post-analyses the business processes
• CIM supports simulation and visualization in the fourth dimension
• CIM supports the integration of IT and OT environments
Who should attend?
- An organization that has already decided it needs to implement CIM as a their standard metadata for network model management or wishes to know more about what CIM would mean for them;
- Managers, data owners, data architects, enterprise architects and interface developers of power utilities who need up-to-date knowledge of CIM.
Your benefitsThis general CIM training will enable you to:
- Explain what is IEC CIM, its way of working, and how the existing standards, packages, classes and attributes fit together.
- Explain why and how CIM is a key driver of improvement in grid operations, planning and asset management
- Describe the use of CIM IEC 61968, IEC 61970 and IEC 62325
- Describe the importance of validation and conformance testing
- Explain how data governance, road mapping and activities fit into broader issues of data security, quality and assurance
- Provide an insight on real-life challenges in implementing CIM
