  • The exchange of information to systems external to the control center environment, including transmission, distribution and generation systems external to the control center that need to exchange real-time data with the control center;
  • The provision of suitable interfaces for data exchange across legacy and new systems.

  • Part 1: Guidelines and general requirements
