Technical Summary This document identifies the key protocols of the Internet Protocol Suite for use in the Smart Grid. The target audience is those people seeking guidance on how to construct an appropriate Internet Protocol Suite profile for the Smart Grid. In practice, such a profile would consist of selecting what is needed for Smart Grid deployment from the picture presented here. Working Group Summary This document is not the product of any IETF WG. The community that developed this document was much larger than usual IETF documents. It included IETF participants in the Smart Power Directorate and the SmartPower-Interest mail list, the Zigbee Alliance, US NIST experts, various power companies and their supporting vendors operating within the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP), and corresponding contributors in Japan and Europe. Document Quality The document was reviewed by Russ Housley for the IESG. The Internet Protocol Suite is not uniformly used in the electrical grid, but is presumed and built on in a variety of communication specifications it uses. Examples include IEC 61850, IEC 14908, ANSI C12.22, and quite a few others. This document is an annotated bibliography of documents those communities have stated are useful.
