1 International Case Study: Integrating Measurements of Energy, Water and Gas PRIME advantages & best practices Alfredo Sanz Atmel Corp Director of Operations & Technology, Power Line Communication Products

2 PRIME advantages Australia Brazil Lebanon Poland Portugal Romania Spain Switzerland United Kingdom

3 PRIME advantages The concept: End-to-End Communication solution for Utilities Power Line Communications (PLC) Technology It defines OSI layers 1 & 2 IPv6 support Future-proof global oriented solution Fully open, license-free multi-vendor interoperable PLC system International Standard published as ITU-T Recommendations G.9901 and G.9904

4 PRIME advantages PRIME provides: a forum for the definition, maintenance and support of open and comprehensive solutions for Smart Grid communications in Medium and Low Voltage Networks. PRIME includes: Utilities & Research Institutes Chipset & Software Companies Meter & Data Concentrator Vendors Integrators & Consultants

5 PRIME milestones PRIME Alliance established by 8 founding industry leaders Worlds First Interoperable PLC System installed Iberdrola installs first 100k PRIME meters in Spain GNF starts deploying & opening research laboratory in Spain PRIME registered as an Non-Profit- Organisation Energex Australia – First Installation outside Europe Energa starts deploying first 310k meters in Poland EDP deploys 90k meters in 6 locations across Portugal First Pilot in the Middle-East by EDL Lebanon 2009

6 Integrating Measurements of Energy, Water and Gas The Integrating Measurements of Energy, Water and Gas in a massive deployment is a complex task that need the commitment of the utility in a long period According PRIME experience, some best practices can improve the process Some study cases; Pilot project in Middle-East: PRIME Pilot project in Europe: PRIME Pilot project in South America:PRIME 1.4 MULTI UTILITY Pilot project :Energy + Gas

7 Pilot project in Middle-East: Measurement Measurement process provide indication of; Performance of technology and recommended architecture.

8 Pilot project in Europe: Measurement Measurement process provide indication of; Performance of technology and recommended architecture. assessment for the massive deployment MEDIDA#Att (dB)N (dBuV)S0_CT (bps)S0_CC (bps)Comments CTRRCTRR na CTRRCC Ruido muy alto en CC a 45KHz y 60KHz CTRRCC CC07CC Ruido muy alto en CC07 CC07CC Ruido muy alto en CC07 CC09CC CC09CC Atenuación muy alta.

12 MULTI UTILITY Pilot project Provide AMI to multi utility systems: Uses PRIME PLC network as the main network LDC and gateway; Collect information of gas meters and convert to PRIME PLC network nodes Convert from wM-Bus to DLMS cosem/ PLC PRIME Concentrator in CT see electrical meter and LDC and gateway as PRIME nodes Back office manage the information colected from DC as DLMS cosem objets

13 MULTI UTILITY Pilot project

14 Recent Updates + Version 1.4 Expanded Frequency Expanded Frequency PRIME bands span from CENELEC A band (<95kHz) to FCC and ARIB spectrums (<500 kHz) with a data rate of 980kbps Data Security for successful roll-out of large scale PLC-based networks. State-of-the-art encryption and authentication at MAC and APP Layer by new Security Profile Security IPv6 Support IPv4 and IEC support, IPv6 support as a convergence layer over PR IME MAC and PHY layers. Backwards Compatibility Fully backwards compatible with the 4+ million installed meters, corresponding Data Concentrators and Gateways with PRIME Specifications PRIME v1.4: robustness improvement, throughput increase, band extension, backwards capability + ALL the benefits of PRIME v1.3.6 Increased Robustness New PHY PDU defined, adding increased robustness without additional complexity or cost implication

15 PRIME v1.4 - Reality beyond Metering Version 1.4 now: makes PRIME fit any grid or environment worldwide: – FCC and ARIB bands (0 – 500 kHz) makes PRIME fit any application worldwide: – Medium voltage transmission, automotive comms, … projects PLC for Smart Metering into Smart Grid: – LV grid remote control applications. – LV infrastructure control and knowledge: transformer, feeder and phase identification.

16 The Eco System PRIME provides a forum for the definition, maintenance and support of open and comprehensive solutions for Smart Grid communications in Medium and Low Voltage Networks. ADVANCED METERING PRIME PLC Dataconcentrators PRIME PLC Meter Devices GRID CONTROL Control and Automation along the Medium & Low Voltage Network ASSET MONITORING Monitoring of Distributed Generation, Demand Response and In-Home Automation assets UTILITY COMMUNICATIONS Medium VoltageNetwork Communications Low Voltage Network Communications In-Home Network Communications

17 The Metering+ Capabilities

18 The Benefits PRIME is a vendor independent and license free public communication standard based on utility-owned assets Independency Decentralized network architecture approach provides distributed intelligence with actionable intelligence at site. Distributed intelligence eliminates bulk risks. Lower Risk Future Proven Investment A system platform based on open standards eases the integration of future communications, grid monitor & control solutions in MV, LV and in-home networks Non-proprietary, license-free open standard that results in lower meter device costs (CAPEX) & lower communication carrier cost (OPEX) Lower Cost End-to-End Solution A solution serving utilities communication needs due to vertical integration of medium and low voltage networks, in-home and distributed energy resources Reality Proven The only PLC based open standard that is mass deployment proven, providing a mature and complete ecosystem

19 The Standardisation PRIME is already an approved Worldwide standard by ITU – Published as ITU-T Recommendations G.9901 and G.9904 – PRIME Alliance to become an ITU-T A.4/A.5 qualified organization PRIME is Normative Annex of IEEE P standard CENELEC EN standard is ready to be published including DLMS/COSEM profile with PRIME protocol reference to ITU-T G.9904 Recommendations

20 The Certification Compliancy Assurance Neutral Conformance Labs now certifying vendor technologies assuring compliance with PRIME Alliance requirements Certification Process for chipsets, DC’s, and Meters facilitates PRIME- compliant and interoperable products in the market. Tests based on specifications provided and maintained by PRIME New Streamlined Certification Renowned third party certification groups, DNV-GL, LABEIN Tecnalia, and ITE, are providing conformance testing in accordance with PRIME Alliance Standards Conformance Testing Independent authorithies executing system stress tests in field-like test procedures, allowing for intra-PRIME performance comparisons Performance Testing Certification process prepared for Version 1.4 and test cases available. Interoperability between PRIME v1.4 products tested Version 1.4 Certification

21 The Summary Communications for Medium, Low-Voltage, In-Home & Distributed Elements Fully proven solution by 4+m deployed Meters, +15 utilities & 14 PRIME vendors Grid Control & Asset Monitoring Features supporting beyond Metering needs Independent Certification Labs ensuring Quality & Performance Benchmarking True openness by millions of interoparable devices out in utilities networks

22 The Conclusion PRIME is the reality & future-proven solution for Smart Grid communications in Medium, Low Voltage and In-Home Networks. prime-alliance.org
