¿Qué estandariza y define la norma IEC61850?

A pesar de que las subestaciones eléctricas son los nodos principales de las redes de transporte y distribución, no han tenido el protagonismo debido en el paradigma de las Smart Grid. Este protagonismo se ha visto reflejado más en otros campos como la medida inteligente, la integración de energías renovables o el control de microrredes. Como activos críticos del sistema y considerando lo fundamental de sus operaciones de control y protección, es lógico que toda transformación en el diseño de las subestaciones se acometa con seguridad.



Exploring IoT Strategies

The study identifies an IoT positioning framework, which captures service providers’ roles, and sub-roles, in the IoT value chain. The study also provides commercial insights, key capabilities required and case studies for each role. While revenue growth is the unanimous key driver for telecom service providers entering the IoT market, the report reveals that multiple paths are being pursued to achieve that revenue growth, with 70 percent of the interviewees having no well-defined strategy.



Blockchain in Electricity: A Call for Policy and Regulatory Foresight

This paper calls for European electricity policymakers and regulators to exercise foresight with respect to the development of blockchain technologies. Blockchains today represent immature technologies that are quickly evolving. Policy and regulatory support will be required to enable investors and entrepreneurs to continue to demonstrate
blockchain applications in the power sector. Simultaneously, proactive consideration must be given to regulatory measures that minimise the potential risks and challenges. The paper is organised as follows. Section 2 briefly summarises the opportunities, limitations and risks associated with the development of blockchain technology in the
electricity sector. Section 3 summarises European blockchain-related policy initiatives. Section 4 investigates regulation from the perspective of “customer journeys,” stories of electricity sector participants in futures in which blockchain-enabled systems have come to replace certain electricity sector processes. Section 5 concludes with general
recommendations for policymakers and regulators.



Blockchain in Electricity: a Critical Review of Progress to Date

This paper discusses current blockchain-related activities and critically assesses the potential for growth of blockchain technologies in the electricity sector. Section 2 introduces some characteristics of the technology. Section 3 discusses blockchain’s potential in the electricity sector. The section first summarises the technology’s oft-cited value propositions and provides examples of active blockchain projects in the electricity sector. It then discusses some of the limitations, risks, and challenges facing the technology. Section 4 concludes and summarises the findings of the paper. This paper draws extensively upon the input of eurelectric Blockchain Discussion Platform members representing 25 European utilities.
