Webinar: Demystifying the Common Information Model
information technology and operations technology challenges within the electric utility industry. Increasing penetrations of large-scale renewables, distributed energy resources, electric vehicles, advanced metering infrastructure, and emerging grid edge devices are now further straining data integration workflows.
The Common Information Model (CIM) can serve as a key enabler of power system model exchange, data integration from multiple sources, and creation of data-rich application environments by providing an ontology and data exchange mechanism that is supported by an increasingly large community of vendors and utilities. The CIM is introduced in the context of creating standards-based platforms to reduce the time, cost, and difficulty of integrating advanced grid functionalities to create a more reliable and resilient grid. Key concepts related to adoption of the CIM (including selection of a CIM profile, creation of a data profile, and selection of a database schema) are outlined.
