Registration for the sixth ENTSO-E Interoperability Test "Common Information Model (CIM) for System Development and System Operations" 2016 opened.

Date: 11/07/2016 - Brussels

​​​​​Registration for the 6th ENTSO-E Interoperability Test “CIM for System Development and System Operations” 2016 opened

​​​Following the success of the previous five interoperability tests related to the common grid model exchange, ENTSO-E is organizing the sixth interoperability test week which will be held in Brussels from 11 July 2016 to 15 July 2016.

The main objectives of the test are as follows:

  • To validate the proposal for CIM extensions that is will be included in the next CGMES 2.5 version of the IEC and CENELEC standards or specifications and which will be used to support the data exchanges required by the European legislation. This is a minor version based on CIM 16 where backwards compatibility is not broken. The extensions are aimed to fulfil modelling gaps in the following main areas:

    • Dynamic modelling

    • Network Model Management (including Frames, Power System Project (meta-data on change set) and Manifest) Bidding Area and integration with Market Schedules

    • Availability Plan (outage)

    • Operational limits

    • Production (PowerElectronics)

    • Capacity calculations

  • To demonstrate exchange of dynamics model following the implementation effort performed by a group of vendors. The use of models expressed in Modelica code will also be validated.

  • To demonstrate exchange based on efficient XML interexchang​e (EXI) defined by W3C.
