D3.2 Smart grids reference architecture and data models v2 (EN)
This deliverable describes the overall NOBEL GRID Architecture, which has been modelled using the CEN-CENELECETSI Smart Grid Architecture Model (SGAM) Framework. SGAM encapsulates not only the functional description of the provided system but also its specification in terms of components, data standards and communication protocols. Additionally, as the NOBEL GRID project is aiming to adopt a security and privacy by design approach, a set of high-level security requirements have been identified for the NOBEL GRID Architecture.
D3.3 Smart meters architecture and data model analysis v1
This deliverable presents the Nobel Grid smart meter architecture specification and data model analysis, version one. The smart meter architecture proposed in the project lies in the intersection of Smart Metering, Smart Grid and Home Automation Systems, thus observing that the project has the challenge of covering all three areas. Differences in regulations add to the challenges of developing a smart meter usable in the whole EU region. Regulatory aspects are analysed – the Smart meter architecture should be flexible enough to be adapted to different countries regulations with minimal effort. By proposing an internet connected meter, special care needs to be given to security and privacy issues, met by the proposed architecture which enforces fine grained data access control, and other functions that can support new advanced energy services such as demand response.
D3.4 Smart meters architecture and data model analysis v2 (EN)
This deliverable presents the NOBEL GRID smart meter architecture specification and data model analysis, an updated second version. The smart meter architecture proposed in the project lies in the intersection of Smart Metering, Smart Grid and Home Automation Systems, thus observing that the project has the challenge of covering all three areas. Differences in regulations add to the challenges of developing a smart meter usable in the whole EU region. Regulatory aspects are analysed – the Smart meter architecture should be flexible enough to be adapted to different countries regulations with minimal effort. By proposing an internet connected meter, special care needs to be given to security and privacy issues, met by the proposed architecture which enforces fine grained data access control, and other functions that can support new advanced energy services such as demand response.
D4.1 Specification of the Unbundled Smart Meter concept based on commercially existing smart meters (EN)
