IEEE C37.90.1-2002 - IEEE Standard for Surge Withstand Capability (SWC) Tests for Relays and Relay Systems Associated with Electric Power Apparatus
This document contains the detailed information of the standard IEEE C37.90.1-2002. Two types of design tests for relays and relay systems that relate to the immunity of this equipment to repetitive electrical transients are specified.
This report outlines 51 recommendations that will help ensure a robust and reliable transmission grid for the 21st century.
This document contains the specification which applies to a communication protocol for networked control systems.
This report addresses the susceptibility of attack on Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, which are considered as a part of the nation's critical infrastructure.
This document contains the details of ANSI C12.20-2002 standard which establishes the physical aspects and acceptable performance criteria for 0.2 and 0.5 accuracy class electricity meters meeting Blondel's Theorem.
In this paper the authors discuss various security aspects and requirements of the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system for the electric power grid.
This technical paper discusses a tool that was developed to allow evaluation of thermal mass control strategies using HVAC utility costs as the baseline for comparison.
This document contains the detailed information of the standard IEEE 802-2001. IEEE Std 802-2001 is the IEEE standard for local and metropolitan area networks.
Smart Meters for Smart Competition: Comment on Current Policy Affecting Interval Metering and Load Profiling for Full Retail Competition in Electricity
This report provides a customer-focused review and comment on the decision by jurisdictional governments and regulators, and the Federal government, to support commencement of full retail competition (FRC) in electricity for small consumers in Australia using load profiles as the basis for settlement and billing, rather than half-hourly interval meters.
This document is the Report of the Commission's Competitive Metering Roundtable Working Group.

Numerous utility AMI proposals have been approved over the past decade; however, recent years have seen noteworthy denials. Understanding the transformative potential of AMI but not seeking to offer an opinion on state actions, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Grid Research Division (AGR) undertook a phased research study to investigate regulatory applications from various parties’ perspective. The resulting report captures the findings and collective insights gained through an in-depth analysis of public records and conversations with more than 120 individuals from utilities, advocates, and commissions across the U.S.

Resilience – the ability to withstand, respond to, and recover rapidly from utility disruptions while sustaining mission-critical operations – is increasingly a focus for utilities, policy makers, regulators, and community leaders. While some utilities own and operate microgrids to help ensure supply to critical customers and areas, customers such as the Department of Defense and corporate data centers also own and operate microgrids to prevent power disruptions and to mitigate the consequences of outages when they do occur. Whether utility or customer, owners of existing and proposed microgrids could benefit from increased dialogue about the challenges, insights, advice, and lessons learned through deploying and operating microgrids. A key focus is exploring the value that microgrids provide to both utilities and customers.

Microgrid controllers are a key component of a microgrid. The microgrid controller is used to optimize, manage, and control the DERs within the microgrid boundary as well as controlling how the microgrid as a whole communicates with the larger grid to provide grid services. The content in this document was developed by Southern Company to compile use cases and functionalities for microgrid controllers and outline how they can be operated to meet different needs.
