Get your team up to speed on emerging smart grid standards like OpenADR 2, IEEE 2030.5, IEC 61850, SunSpec, OCPP, IEC 15118, Green Button, MultiSpeak and more.
The QualityLogic team can help you assess the maturity of smart grid standards you are considering. This ensures informed decisions about specifications, development and implementation plans.
Get the state-of-the-art test tools to simulate environments to test interoperability of smart grid products. Test an implementation against a “correct” implementation and debug interoperability issues.
Added Confidence For Your Buyers
QualityLogic works with industry alliances and consortiums to design, develop and support test tools for certification programs for smart grid standards.
Smart Energy Market Challenges
The Smart Energy industry has made an impressive start, with standards that promote product interoperability. But deciding on technology standards is only the beginning. You’ll face some daunting challenges:
- Understanding how to benefit from a standard and ensuring it improves your value-add
- Training your team to develop, specify and/or acquire products based on specific standards
- Assessing the maturity of various standards so you can avoid orphaned or obsolete implementations as standards evolve
- Designing implementation processes to ensure interoperability of products from multiple vendors
- Accelerating development and deployment of products while ensuring interoperability
- View the labs that are performing SunSpec CSIP, OpenADR and 61850 certification testing by using QualityLogic’s test tools
- See products that have passed IEEE 2030.5 Conformance Testing.
Our customers asked us to demonstrate the use of open standards with independent validation. IEEE 2030.5 was the logical communications standard to implement because of its capabilities for the application, the availability of approved certification tests, and TTA’s conformance testing using the test tools from QualityLogic.Jae-Jo Lee, Team Leader, Power Telecommunication Research Center

QualityLogic Webinar: Introduction to OpenADR
May 6 at 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (PDT)
QualityLogic is continuing to share its smart energy communication protocol expertise by putting on an OpenADR webinar. The live webinar will offer an introduction to OpenADR by our CTO, Jim Zuber, followed by a Q&A session to answer questions about OpenADR and how it can most effectively be utilized for DR and DER use cases.
QualityLogic Webinar: Selecting the Right Protocol
A critical issue for utilities planning to integrate DER resources into grid operations is how to manage these resources. A major challenge is designing and implementing an interoperable eco-system of utility management systems (DERMS), aggregators and gateways and end-devices themselves. It would be ideal to create a “plug-and-play” eco-system to speed deployment, lower costs and improve performance of DERs. QualityLogic has been working with the standard grid-edge communications protocols (OpenADR, IEEE 2030.5, IEC 61850, DNP3, etc) for the past 10 years. These standards are a key component in creating the desired eco-system of vendors and products.
As the leading developer of the test tools and training for implementing grid-edge protocols, we have a unique perspective on this challenge and we share that information during this webinar.
