Description

As a goal, we would like to guide realization of an energy system that is interoperable, by standardizing the meaning of data exchanged and guide implementation of open source projects developing exchange (interfaces) based on these standards. We focus on the business side of interoperability as common understanding, trust and transparency of data used and data exchanged is a fundamental part of the energy system of the future, regardless of geography.

Data Architecture Workgroup Office Hour

Teleconference weekly on Thursdays, 7:00 US Pacific Time. Meeting details can be found in the LF Energy Community Calendar or below.

  • during the northern winter: 07:00 -0800 (PST) → 16:00 +0100 (CET)

Topics for the meeting of 10th of December 2020

Welcome

Set the agenda

Jonas van den Bogaard will join us on how we can bring the data architecture to the TAC 

  • What is the process?
  • What kind of advice can we give?
  • Alignment with the LF energy on project maturity models and data architecture maturity?

Very short reports from Robbie Morrison on:

  • Icebreaker One Open Energy phase II completion
  • DBpedia Databus project (am trying to talk that project into using the Open Energy Modelling Initiative community as a pilot)
  • EERAdata metadata joint publication (all aspects including provenance, semantics, and legal)
  • some recent attempts to get CC‑BY‑4.0 licensing on to the ENTSO‑E Transparency Platform
  • subseasonal to seasonal climate forecasting for energy workshop held 4 December 2020
  • the Linux Foundation OS‑Climate project (OS = operating system, to create a digital twin of the entire planet?)

Rob's improvement


Notes:

Jonas: 30-60 minutes introduction into data architecture. Jonas can put us on the agenda.

Perspective: project use focused (how can projects use/benefit from the data architecture; why); some slides would be nice.

Discussions on the next steps could be discussed later.

Landing page links for the above short reports from Robbie Morrison:

Robbie Morrison also mentioned the frictionless data concept from the Open Knowledge Foundation (OKFN):

Rob presented an idea for an maturity framework for LF energy data architecture aspects.

The maturity model 

Naveen Goswamy suggested to look into grid‑wise architecture model and map these models

We need to be careful to ..

Derrick Oswald

Exchange methods need more clarity, particularly in relation to control signalling.

Rob will share his proposal to fill in.

Topics for the meeting of 3th of December 2020

Welcome

Set the agenda


Notes:

Rob's suggestions in terms of interoperability maturity:


1 datamodel
2 description / definition
3 exchange language (Technical format, e.g. JSON)
​ 4 exchange method (E.g. filesharing / API)

Open standards are only allowed. Proprietary standards are not allowed.

Eric made his first changes to the document to make it ready to discuss it with Jonas (TAC).

Topics for the meeting of 26th of November 2020

Welcome

The current architecture guideline only provide direction. More can be done (e.g. testing).


Maturity levels suggestions:

1 collaboration with other projects within the ecosystem (e.g. LF energy project or other related projects)

2 Using standards (if exists)

3 Test the interoperability between projects


Projects can go to the data office hours to get help to the next phase.


Actionlist:

To doWho
Review the document for the TACWho did not do it so far

Welcome

Set the agenda

What is our propose? (discussion last week)

  • STEPS 
    • What is the vision of LFenergy
    • What is the goal of this team?
    • What are the guidelines, principles 
    • What are our products
    • what is our implementation strategy
    • what is our commitment to this
    • Deliverables

Do we want to add SARGON to the referance models?


Notes:

Discussion how we bring the data architectur to a new level.

  • Rob suggests to embed the data architecture principles into the LF energy. Becomming a member LF energy project requires you to comply with the data architecture lines. E.g. start with lineage. Measure the compliance with the data architecture guidelines.
  • The TAC can be an good place to promote guidelines.
  • Join the projects to make it happen
  • Collaboration between projects in the ecosystem is a maturity level. LFedge encourage project to collaborate with the ecosystem. 
  • Start an open source project to measure the compliance with the data architecture lines
  • Expand recommendation and guidelines to reference implementations (open source) of the recommended standards to fastrack and ease adoption by the projects.

Not so much operating modes,but more possible practical guidelines, methods: 

  • EH: Create a dictionary associated with functional domains that can be used, when projects ask to become part of ecosystem (functional domain?) then projects have to prove they comply to these definitions with their interfaces.
  • EH: If projects expose interfaces to ecosystem, they have to deliver metadata on provenance of input they used to get to the output they generate


<<Please add your suggestion to the list; How can we bring the data architecture to a new level within LF Energy and related projects>>

Welcome

Set the agenda: are their any topics for today?

Status of the invite of: Operator fabric / OpenEEmeter / Powsybl


Unfortunately Robbie Morrison cannot make this meeting due to a clash. But a couple of comments nonetheless:

  • I have been contributing to the Icebreaker One (IB1) Open Energy project via advisory group 2 (AG2) covering policy, legal, and regulation. That project will build a proof-of-concept data portal and is being commissioned under the United Kingdom governments Modernising Energy Data Access (MEDA) initiative.
  • The Horizon 2020 (H2020) openENTRANCE project and the European Commission recently ran the Energy Modelling Platform — Europe (EMP‑E) 2020 conference. Data was less of a focus than modeling and analysis, but the topics of meteorological data and anticipated future climate change were covered in Focus Group 1.  Full recordings should be available in due course.


Notes: Gianluca will each out to check on the SARGON onlology

Sander will contact the invites of other projects.

Topics for the meeting of 10th of September 2020

  • Welcome
  • Set the agenda
  • Evaluation of the previous sessions with RIAPS/OEDI/CoMPAS
    • Was it useful? Does it help with the data architecture?
    • Do we want to invite more projects?

Notes:

Connecting to the project is use-full, However the OEDI and RIAPS had little relation with the data architecture.

OpenEEmeter, PowSyBl and OperatorFabric will be invited to present their project as well. Sander Jansenwill invite them.

Opentaps project: https://opentaps.org/2020/01/30/green-button-xml-openeemeter-added-opentaps-mv/

Topics for the meeting of 3th of September 2020

Proposed agenda : one hour later at 08:00 PDT -0700 and 17:00 CEST +0200:

 Michael Rossel of OEDI 

  • Project focus and introduction
  • Data input
  • Data output
  • Used semantics (What standards are used? e.g. for the meta data catalogue)

Robbie Morrison

  • brief comparison of European and United States intellectual property law covering data
  • (could someone download and screen share the PDF I earlier posted to the mailing list, TIA)

Summary of the OEDI project:

  • The OEDI project is an open data project, not at open source project! However they release/build some open source software for consumption.
  • Data providers decide on the semantics of their datasets.
  • Everyone can summit datasets as long they comply with the rules.
  • AWS provides the storage currently for free to the project. The OEDI is looking into other cloud providers to migitate risk of AWS charging money.
  • The datacatalogus is build with CKAN. The catalogus supports DCAT.

Topics for the meeting of 27th of August 2020

  • Welcome
  • Set the agenda
  • Review action list updates

Gabor Karsai form the RIAPS project

  • Project focus and introduction
  • Data input
  • Data output
  • Used semantics (What standards are used? e.g. for the meta data catalogue)

Summary of the RIAPS project:

  • Energy related project since it is funded by energy research money, it can be used for other applications
  • Semantics are relevant in the application side not in RIAPS itself
  • RIAPS is "partly" compatible with openFMB (openFMB uses IEC 61850 and IEC CIM)
  • The goal is the make it production grade and apply it in the field. A production grade project is work in progress.
  • Exsisting (demo) applications are research focused (for now). 
  • Any application message format can be used as long it can be used with ZeroMQ

Follow up:

(I, Robbie Morrison, was asked to record my comments about developing country transfers, please move this content elsewhere if this is not the best place. Or alternatively delete this comment.)

There are three projects promoting open source/data/access for  energy policy development for developing country:

  • Global Power System Transformation Consortium — aimed at up-skilling the entire industry from operations to public policy
  • U4RIA guidelines — a set of principles to improve transparency, community engagement, robustness, and trust
  • LF Energy — based on recent comments by Shuli Goodman
