From the link to the application layer, the OpenDEM technology stack meets well-established cybersecurity Best Practices.
OpenDEM is designed as a suite of services designed to run in the cloud. Where resiliency is a must, the system can be deployed via a complete image file at a district, campus, or individual facility level.
OpenDEM does not require vendor specific hardware, sofware or cloud services.
All algorithms, APIs and applications are open source.
The API’s and apps support the IEEE 2030.5 (SEP 2.0) and Facility Smart Grid Information Model (ASHRAE 201). This model incorporates the IEC 61850-7-420 DER data model and the IEC 61850-90-7 Advanced Inverter data model.
The C&C platform enables reliable scheduling, commitment and dispatch of DER within utility planning and operational time intervals.
From a number of devices to storage density and computation intensity, the open source tools and technologies are designed to scale horizontally and vertically.
OpenDEM is designed to be an end-to-end hardware and software platform and architecture.
Autonomous and aggregated controls are based on user-approved local and field area smoothing and flattening control sequences and remote dynamic dispatch.
