A. Revenue Metering Information Model ANSI C12.19 : ANSI C12.19 is an ANSI standard for utility industry end device data tables. This standard is defining a table structure for data transmissions between an end device and a computer for utility applications using binary codes and XML content. ANSI C12.19 is not interested in defining device design criteria or specifying the language or protocol used to transport that data. M-Bus : M-Bus is a European standard and provides the requirements for remotely reading all kinds of utility me- ters. The utility meters are connected to a common master that periodically reads the meters via M-Bus. The wireless version, Wireless M-Bus, is also specified recently. ANSI C12.18 : ANSI C12.18 is an American National Standard (ANSI) standard that is specifically designed for meter communications and responsible for two way communications between smart electricity meters (C12.18 device) and a C12.18 client via an optical port. B. Building Automation BACnet : BACnet is a standard communication protocol that was developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) for building automation and control networks and support

536 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INDUSTRIAL INFORMATICS, VOL. 7, NO. 4, NOVEMBER 2011 the implementation of intelligent buildings with full inte- gration of computer-based building automation and control systems from multiple manufacturers. C. Substation Automation IEC 61850 : IEC 61850 is a flexible, open standard that de- fines the communication between devices in transmission, distribution and substation automation systems. To enable seamless data communications and information exchange between the overall distribution networks, it is aimed to increase the scope of IEC 6180 to whole electric network and provide its compatibility with Common Information Model (CIM) for monitoring, control and protection appli- cations [25]. This technology is implemented by modern manufacturers in their latest power engineering products like distribution automation nodes/grid measurement and diagnostics devices [13]. D. Powerline Networking HomePlug : HomePlug is a powerline technology and the existing home electricity is used to connect the smart appli- ances to HAN; HomePlug Command and Control (HPCC) version is designed for low-cost applications. HomePlug is a promising technology to create a reliable HAN between electric appliances and a smart meter. HomePlug Green PHY : HomePlug Green PHY specifica- tion is developed as a low-power, cost-optimized powerline networking specification standard for smart grid applica- tions used in home area networking by the Smart Energy Technical Working Group within the HomePlug Power- line Alliance. The inputs for optimization of specifications for field tests were gathered from many utilities, i.e., Con- sumers Energy, Duke Energy, Pacific Gas and Electric, and Southern California Edison. Backwards interoperability, lower data rate and IP networking support, low-power con- sumption, full interoperability with both HomePlug de-

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
