EPRI has been advancing the understanding of enterprise integration challenges related to the need to manage distributed energy resources (DER). While prior EPRI work has focused on the functional requirements for enterprise integration leveraging what has been termed a DER Management System (DERMS), the focus of this effort has been to create the necessary artifacts required to implement those business functions. To that end this test script was created to set the expectation level for standards-based compliance with the international electrotechnical commission (IEC) standards. These standards include what will become the committee draft of IEC 61968-5 Planning and Optimization Committee Draft (CD) but also using IEC 61968-100:2013, which sets the expectations for application integration for utilities using common information model (CIM) based messaging, specifically leveraging Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) over Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). This test script uses messages that have been defined using eXtinsible Schema Definition (XSD) files which also reflect changes to the CIM that have been made to support the subset of the use cases covered in the EPRI DER functional requirements technical report.
