The CIM Users Group (CIMug) is a subgroup of the UCA International Users Group, to provide a forum in which users, consultants, and suppliers can cooperate and leverage the IEC CIM international standards to advance interoperability across the utility enterprise.
The Common Information Model (CIM) is an abstract information model that provides data understanding through the identification of the relationships and associations of the data within a utility enterprise. This model which is maintained and developed in Enterprise Architect supports the exchange of data models and messages and increases the ability to integrate applications both within the enterprise and with trading partners. The CIM Users Group is focused on helping its members obtain the benefits of adapting IEC TC57 modeling standards for all utility operations on a global basis.
These include IEC 61970 – For power system modeling and energy utility data exchange including EMS, topology, wires, SCADA, etc.
IEC 61968 – For power system modeling related to DMS, assets, work, GIS, metering and application messaging.
IEC 62325 – Modeling for energy markets with support for both North American, European and other markets under consideration.
For the first time, the CIMug will meet in Australia to address the use of the CIM standards in Australia, New Zealand, and other Asian countries. This meeting will be held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG)
Date: Feb 25-27, 2014
