This paper describes efforts by the City of Bellevue, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), CH2M, and Quantela, Inc.—the Bellevue Smart Team (Team)—to develop and pilot test technologies to leverage real-time data to enhance citizen

Workshop on Smart Grid Interoperability Testing and Certification

January 31, 2020
Cuong T. Nguyen, Avi M. Gopstein
New smart grid architectures, devices, systems, and applications require extensive data exchange, necessitating well-defined interfaces to transfer and translate this data across the grid. Clarifying the protocols and data performance requirements across

Green Button Data-Access Model for Smart Cities

December 2, 2019
Cuong T. Nguyen, Jeremy J. Roberts
The purpose of the paper is to provide a look into the lessons learned through the roll-out of the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology and U.S. Department of Energy Green Button electricity, natural gas, and water data-access initiative: to

Replication of Smart-City, Internet of Things Assets in a Municipal Deployment

April 17, 2019
Sokwoo Rhee, Cuong T. Nguyen, Alexander Nelson, Greg Toth, Dennis Linders
Recent efforts to integrate Internet of Things into Smart City constructs have proven successful through proof of concept deployments in multiple cities. To facilitate additional deployments, standardization and dissemination of best practices for these

Dhananjay Anand, Kevin G. Brady, Yuyin Song, Cuong T. Nguyen, Kang B. Lee, Gerald J. FitzPatrick, Allen R. Goldstein, YaShian Li-Baboud
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), participated in the Universal Communication Architecture International User Group (UCAIug) Interoperability (IOP) Test Event on October 14-19, 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The objective of the

A Calibration of Timing Accuracy in the NIST Cyber-Physical Systems Testbed

December 18, 2018
Marc A. Weiss, YaShian Li-Baboud, Dhananjay Anand, Kevin G. Brady, Paul A. Boynton, Cuong T. Nguyen, Martin J. Burns, Avi M. Gopstein
We propose a general methodology for assessing the time accuracy and uncertainties and report results from a project to calibrate timing in the NIST CPS and Smart Grid Testbeds. We measured clock synchronization accuracy and stability as well as latencies
