Non-transactive data is defined as information or measurements that are actual/factual; transactive data is defined as data that is predictive information. This document does not apply to transactive data.
This document defines the Pacific Northwest Smart Grid Demonstration Data Collection implementation for non-transactive data, the XML schemata, and a few data examples (both in XML and CSV). The PNWSGD Transactions Schema is defined in eXtensible Mark-up Language (XML) format.
Section 1.0 describes the top level of the schema and the roles played by each of the components.
Section 2.0 Membership Transactions describes the transactions involving which data streams are members of which test case and the role they play. This role may be as a Control Member (baseline data), as an Experimental Member, or Not a Member. This information is covered by two types of transactions: MembershipConfigTransaction and MembershipEventTransaction. Configuration transactions determine the current state of membersips of the data streams with respect to the test cases; event transactions allow membership changes to be made and tracked historically.
Section 3.0 Test Case Transactions describes events relevant to the status of test cases. These events, chosen from a pre-determined list, allow the analysts to track elements that may have an impact on the test case results, such as asset engagement and configuration.
Section 4.0 Device Transactions describes how information about devices is collected and how events reported by devices are captured. Only events listed in a predetermined list are reported.
Section 5.0 Customer Transaction describes how to track customers in the context of a device. This will be useful in only limited contexts.
Section 6.0 Location Information Transaction provides a mechanism for connecting data streams to a service location. Not all data streams have a location, but most will be related to a point in the distribution network.
Section 7.0 Data Stream Measurements describes collecting the actual data from the data streams.
Most of the remainder of the document deals with metadata, the data about the data. This is how the data itself is captured.
Section 8.0 Data Stream Information describes how the data streams are defined. Data streams connect locations with time varying data (or even one-time data).
Section 9.0 Summary provides a checklist of what a utility needs to do to report non-transactive data to the Data Collection System.
