1 Agenda 1 Basic parameters and features BPL AMI Architecture in CEZ Field Test Results Risks and future possibilities BPL in SMARTGRID and AMI = Working Reality of one communication platform

2 2 ©2009 All Rights Reserved 2 Home Grid is the commercial companion group for G.hn Worldwide industry representation Corinex is Chair of the AMI Working Group for this impressive new standard with mandate to: 1.Develop Clean Tech product standards for devices with G.hn technology. These standards will be used to access Clean Tech properties of the technology; 2.Lab testing and certification process to verify those properties; 3.Establish methods of calculation of the carbon offsets for devices having Clean Tech properties Board of Directors Promoters Contributors UNH Board of Directors Contributions Certification & Interoperability Smart Grid Utilities Purpose Promote G.hn Technology and Ensure Interoperability of Products Based on the G.hn Spec G.Hn Markets Focus

3 Features: Full Corinex BPL Architecture Benefits Corinex BPL Solution Supports All Needs of AMI and SmartGrid Applications ■ Simple meter interoperability ■ Integrated ripple control system – broadcasting in all cluster within a minute ■ Proven communication performance (AMI, SmartGrid, EV) ■ The industry lowest cost/performance ratio compared to all communication technologies ■ Unmatched performance (up to 40Mbps) and reliability ■ Self adapt and auto-healing mechanism ■ Interoperable solution for multi-meter vendor support ■ Real-time event reporting and meter profile reading ■ Leadership in open standard (G.hn) solution ■ Security encryption support ■ Advanced data integrity and validation (in meter and HES) ■ Real-time demand load management (within seconds) ■ Remote firmware upgrade (open for future needs) 3

4 Meter Interoperability 4 L&G meter ZPA meter Corinex Metering software in Smart Communication Module Corinex Wide Band PLC Gateway Corinex Technology is Meter Agnostic and has four components. Mikroelektronika meter Solution Components Smart Grid Connect Net Perform Grid Intel Net Admin Grid Apps

5 Corinex- BPL specific features 5 ■ The module has a broadcast address ■ The module is able to accept a broadcast (e.g. a telegram for everybody- only right ones react) ■ Reaction for telegram if address part is OK is: change of tariff/output, change of virtual output change of limiter, change of disconnector, etc. ■ Similar actions as above enabled in TOU ■ Above actions are enabled by unicast and single address command ■ A possibility to operate so called “virtual relay- e.g. home automation” (nice to have) Integrated Ripple Control System

6 6 BPL Network Architecture in CEZ deployment The BPL network on low voltage is connected to the CEZ 3G WAN for backhaul to central servers CEZ has measured the performance of meter reading to ensure it meets/exceeds the requirements for their smart grid applications Access Router 234 Meters In TU_0848 Transformer Station Via 3G Router Corinex AMI LV Network In TU_0848 Reading Conditions: Time Out 20s per read Max 5 Retry per Read DB Corinex + Landis BPL Meter in MDU Buildings WAN Transformer Station Via 3G Router Corinex + Landis BPL Meter in Residential Houses Collection Engine

7 7 Broadband Implementation available for MDM The deployment in Vrchlabí was chosen to trial the broadband technology for smart grid applications CEZ is piloting new broadband over powerline technology to the meter, which achieved high bandwidth and reliability for smart grid applications 7 Example -Trafo TU 848AMM Topology

8 8 Pardubice Deployment Deployment without Repeaters – Q Pardubice 2012 Average meter reading success rate of % without repeaters Deployment Approach in 3 steps: 1.Planning and Hardware Installation - Completed by CEZ without assistance from Corinex. 2. Network Optimization - Accomplished by Corinex in less than 2 days: Only 1.6% meters not reporting Consider this step closed and will return after the CEZ 60% test 3. Clean up and 100% connectivity – Connected the remaining 1-2% in February  1108 single phase meters  112 three phase meters  1220 total meters PA_0619 PA_0637 PA_0087 BPL has superior connectivity and performance to any other PLC deployments

9 Deployment without repeaters Pardubice Substations Red_Substation ● 3 Corinex Gateways at the Substation ● 0 Repeater Gateways in the field ● 352 meters ● The most remote meter: 390 m Yellow_Substation ● 3 Corinex Gateways at the Substation ● 0 Repeater Gateways in the field ● 451 meters ● The most remote meter: 470 m Blue_Substation ● 3 Corinex Gateways at the Substation ● 0 Repeater Gateways in the field ● 348 meters ● The most remote meter: 310 m Approx. 500 m All 1151 meters have connectivity with the NOC!

10 Total number of meters: 351 Physical speed of 351 meters (Blue_Substation): Physical connections of the 24 Meters acting as relays for the Blue_Substation: Performance Analysis Meter Relay Colour Code is the Physical Speed of the Meter Relays (All Meters still connected to the NOC) Physical speed distribution – Upstream [Mbps]

11 BPL to the meter: known and unknown PROVEN ■ BPL technology has an unparalleled reading performance in areas where tested ■ Easy to deploy ■ Cost comparable with narrow band solution in absolute terms, and hundreds times lower in price per Mb ■ Technology is supported by strongest silicon vendors (TI, Marvell, Intel). ■ In various market segments: EV, SmartGrid, to the meter. OPEN ■ It is a new technology. One needs to better understand what it cannot do. ■ Solution can be further enhanced, benefiting from the speed and reliability of the technology – it is not fully exploited yet. ■ To lower the risk it would be beneficial to expand number of meter vendors adopting the technology (currently five in Europe) ■ To be able to scale up to 1 million meters + it would be good to have a concentrator – it is on the roadmap and will be introduced in September It will enable solution for up to 30 mil meters. ■ Vulnerable to the limited knowledge about its actual cost and performance 11
