Real-Time Innovations Gets DOE Funds for Smart Grid Security R&D

GridReal-Time Innovations has received funds from the Energy Department to continue research on smart grid security systems that apply Data-Distribution Service standard.

RTI said Monday it will collaborate with DoE and use the company’s Connext DDS real-time commercial connectivity software to develop a platform that could potentially secure the next-generation U.S. smart grid’s cyberphysical communications infrastructure.

The company added it also works with national laboratories, utilities, research groups, manufacturers and standardization bodies to address relevance and alignment.

The platform will integrate features of Connext DDS Secure which serves as a software data bus for grid edge cyberphysical systems, RTI noted

RTI will also conduct a demonstration that will utilize Green Energy Corp.‘s Green Bus open source multi-protocol telemetry control platform that is designed to facilitate interoperability and coordination between remote devices, energy automation applications and human operators.

The project will also incorporate RTI’s experience with industry consortium Smart Grid Interoperability Panel.

RTI tested the compatibility of its DDS platform to SGIP’s Open Field Message Bus framework for distributed intelligence that applies industrial internet of things standards such as DDS, Message Queue Telemetry Transport and Advanced Message Queue Protocol.
