Just a quick reminder that there is still time to register for the Harnessing DDS in Next Generation Smart Energy Systems Webcast on November 5 2014.
PrismTech is pleased to announce its new Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Webcast Series. The series brings together leading IIoT experts from industries including Smart Energy, Smart Healthcare, and Smart Cities to demonstrate the major advantages of using the Object Management Group's Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard within their vertical sectors.
The first Webcast on November 5, 2014 features Duke Energy's Emerging Technology Office. The group is researching key protocols to link devices in Energy Powergrids and Microgrids.
Traditionally, the coordination and control of energy power systems has been delivered through centralized management systems. However with the advent of more intelligent field devices generating massive amounts of data, along with a dynamic landscape of distributed power generation such as renewables (solar, wind), microgrids and storage, combined with new customer driven technologies (electric vehicles and home automation systems), a new architecture employing both centralized and distributed information management is necessary to enable effective management of the energy power system.
The new architecture needs to deliver benefits that are not sufficiently met by existing utility infrastructure including scalable data and information management, near real-time response times, enhanced situational awareness, interchangeability, distributed control, greater energy efficiency and reduced total cost of ownership.
This webcast will detail how DDS is a required element within the new architecture as a message bus protocol to address the performance and security needs of critical operational control systems such as those used by microgrids and for substation automation.
The webcast will last approximately one hour.
