RTI Presents "Standards for Autonomous and Secure Microgrids" Complimentary Webinar

Duke Energy Joins RTI to Discuss Emerging Microgrid Interoperability Standards

SUNNYVALE, Calif.—March 17, 2015—Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things connectivity platform company, today announced it is hosting a complimentary webinar, "Standards for Autonomous and Secure Microgrids" in partnership with Duke Energy, one of the largest electric utilities in the U.S. This live event will explore how emerging microgrid interoperability standards can accelerate software and device development while reducing integration costs for utilities.

The U.S. power grid is changing. Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) require responsive, distributed control at the edge of the grid. DERs create new challenges in scalability and reliability, while increasing the network footprint exposed to cyber threats.

Stuart Laval, Manager of Technology Development at Duke Energywill review Duke Energy's lessons learned on interoperability and introduce its Distributed Intelligence Platform reference architecture and the Open Field Message Bus (OpenFMB) framework. He will also explain how these relate to other traditional standards including DNP3, IEC 61850, and Modbus.

David Barnett, Vice President of Products and Markets at RTI, will introduce the Data Distribution Service (DDS) interoperability standard. DDS is a core component of Duke Energy's reference architecture platform because of its unique ability to support demanding performance and security requirements.

Additional details on the event can be found below.
