RESONANCE has now identified ten generic business use cases and elicited a set of high-level requirements for the RESONANCE Software Framework which have fed into the design of an initial Framework architecture.
Mapping standardised use cases with pilot objectives
A main aim in RESONANCE is to ensure compliance with current smart home and smart grid standards, contributing to their further development for easier use and replication of solutions. The project approach has therefore been to identify the standardised use cases relevant for RESONANCE and map them to the pilot objectives, this way also exposing the gaps and needs for additional use cases.
Based on an analysis of existing standards, RESONANCE has chosen to select business use cases from the IEC 62746-2 standard, since they fit well with the scope of RESONANCE, and in particular the support of demand response. The result is ten generic business use cases with emphasis on energy management and flexibility, of which three are additional ones, not covered by the standard:
