Title Application integration at electric utilities - System interfaces for distribution management - Part 9: Interfaces for meter reading and control
Project Number 24185
Abstract/Scope IEC 61968-9:2013 specifies the information content of a set of message types that can be used to support many of the business functions related to meter reading and control. Typical uses of the message types include meter reading, controls, events, customer data synchronization and customer switching. The purpose of IEC 61968-9 is to define a standard for the integration of metering systems (MS), which includes traditional manual systems, and (one or two-way) automated meter reading (AMR) systems, and meter data management (MDM) systems with other enterprise systems and business functions within the scope of IEC 61968. The scope of IEC 61968-9 is the exchange of information between metering systems, MDM systems and other systems within the utility enterprise. This new edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - changes to and addition of new profiles to support PAN and UsagePoints; - extensions to support PAN devices generically as EndDevices; - extensions to the MeterReading model and profiles to support richer descriptions of metered quantities and to accommodate coincident readings.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
