Distribution System Operators (DSOs) rely on an increasing number of software applications for network operation and management. These applications need to exchange data with each other smoothly and efficiently. To facilitate inter-application communications and improve interoperability, IEC Common Information Model (CIM) standards and enterprise integration technologies, such as Service-oriented architecture (SOA), can be used. This paper focuses on one distribution management use case – “Coordinated Voltage Control”, explains how CIM standards and SOA technologies can utilized to integrate Coordinated Voltage Control Matlab software with external systems such as SCADA. The paper covers design, implementation and laboratory demonstration for the communication aspect of this use case.
