The Smart energy Grid Architecture Model (SGAM) is a three-dimensional architectural framework that can be used to model interactions (mostly exchange of information) between different entities located within the smart energy arena:
NOTE : the IEC SRD 63200 will be available by mid 2020
A bit of history
SGAM was born at the time of the European mandate M/490.
Its formalization happens first through the CEN-CENELEC-ETSI Smart Grid co-ordination group (now called SEG-CG as Smart Energy Grid co-ordination group).
The main objectives were to help all different stakeholders, not that much used to work together (Generators,TSOs, DSOs, DERs, Home/building/industries), to share a common framework, with a specific emphasis on interoperability.
SGAM for multi-energies
Since its original publication, the SGAM has been extended in order to support more than just electricity, i.e other energy fluids such as heat and power.
A set of roles involved in the energy industry, considering that the whole industry is partitioned into business domains: (Bulk) Generation, Transmission, Distribution, DER(Distributed Energy Resources) and Customers’ Premises.
Hierarchical level of the system architecture from the energy market places, down to the physical power equipment, considering that the whole chain is partitioned into 6 zones: Market, Enterprise Operation, Station, Field and Process
SGAM interoperability levels
Conceptual layer derived from the interoperability layers as described in the GridWise Architecture Council (GWAC) model, such that the whole set of interoperability layers is divided into 5:
SGAM main usages
The SGAM is a tool which can be used efficiently in many different situations as depicted in the figures below :
