New Standard Provides Framework for Smart Grid Testing and Certification



Cuong T. Nguyen, Khaled Masri


In May 2016, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) published a new standard, Smart Grid Interoperability Process Reference Manual, ANSI/NEMA SG-IPRM 1-2016 (IPRM). The standard codifies a 40-page publication, the Interoperability Process Reference Manual (IPRM), which has been developed and refined over the past six years by the Smart Grid Testing and Certification Committee (SGTCC) of the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP).
