Rationale for PAPs
• National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is proposing a
set of priorities for developing standards necessary to build an
interoperable Smart Grid. Among the criteria for inclusion on this
initial list were immediacy of need, relevance to high-priority,
availability of existing standards to respond to the need, state of the
deployment of affected technologies, and estimated time frame to
achieve an effective solution.
• To facilitate timely and effective responses to these needs, NIST has
drafted a preliminary Priority Action Plan (PAP) for each need. The
PAPs are intended to scope out problem areas and to begin clarifying
the steps required for achieving solutions.
• PAPs are intended to facilitate progress, which includes more detailed
definition of needs and identifying the appropriate actions and actors
for accomplishing modifications or enhancements to standards as well
as the harmonization required. These are key objectives of August 3-4,
2009, workshop convened by NIST, with assistance from the Electric
Power Research Institute.

PAP #2
2 What: Wireless Communications for the Smart Grid (6.1.5)
2.1 Abstract:
This work area investigates the strengths, weaknesses, capabilities, and constraints of existing and emerging standardsbased physical media for wireless communications. The approach is to work with the appropriate standard
development organizations (SDOs) to determine the characteristics of each technology for Smart Grid application
areas and types. Results are used to assess the appropriateness of wireless communications technologies for meeting
Smart Grid applications.
2.2 Description:
Review existing documentation and ongoing work to assess the capabilities and weaknesses of wireless technologies
operating in both licensed and unlicensed bands and to develop guidelines on their use for different Smart Grid
application requirements.
2.3 Objectives:
•
•
•
Identify requirements for use of wireless technologies for the Smart Grid.
Identify guidelines for effectively, safely, and securely employing wireless technologies for the Smart Grid.
Identify approaches to define the strengths and weaknesses of candidate wireless technologies to assist Smart Grid
design decisions.
•
Analyze co-channel interference issues and develop coexistence guidelines for operation in unlicensed bands.
•
Identify key issues to be addressed in wireless assessments and development for the Smart Grid.
2.4 Why:
Wireless technologies are one of many types of media that could meet many Smart Grid requirements by enabling access
where other media are too costly or otherwise not workable. However, different types of wireless technologies also
have different availability, time-sensitivity, and security characteristics that may constrain what applications they are
suitable for. Therefore, different wireless technologies must be used with knowledge of their varying capabilities and
weaknesses in all plausible conditions of operation. This work provides objective information on the appropriateness
of use.

PAP #2 – Where (5 of 7)
• 2.5 Where:
• Wireless can be used in field environments across the Smart Grid
including generation plants, transmission systems, substations,
distribution systems, and customer premises communications. The
choice of wireless or non-wireless, as well as type of wireless must be
made with knowledge of the appropriate use of the technology.

PAP #2 Tasks 1 to 3 (6 of 7)
• Tasks:
• 1) Segment the SG domains into different wireless
environments/groups that could use similar sets of requirements.
– Responsible: IEEE 802 (Bruce Kraemer, Roger Marks, Mark
Kelerer, Phil Beecher) will organize with support from P2030.
OpenSG will serve as a reviewer.
• Date: TBD* –
• 2) Develop a common set of terminology and definitions used by
wireless and smart grid communities
– Responsible: same participants as task 1
• 3) Compile and communicate Smart Grid requirements and use
cases in a standardized format mapped into categories identified in
task 1
– Responsible: OpenSG (Chris Knudsen UCAiug) in coordination
with EPRI and DOE clearinghouse, to be reviewed by P2030
