  • The exchange of information to systems external to the control center environment, including transmission, distribution and generation systems external to the control center that need to exchange real-time data with the control center
  • The provision of suitable interfaces for data exchange across legacy and new systems

The complete set of standards includes the following parts:

  • Part 1: Guidelines and general requirements
  • Part 2: Glossary
  • Part 3XX: Common Information Model (CIM)
  • Part 4XX: Component Interface Specification (CIS)
