Post-Conference Briefing: Digital Twin Applications

Friday 21st October 2022, 08:00 to 16:30


Registration and Refreshments


Welcome address from The Chair
Digital Twin Standardisation - Defining the attributes, updating on standardisation progress, and reviewing successful applications of Digital Twin across a range of sectors
• Defining a standard of Digital Twin technology for common frameworks to enable informed decision making and create a Virtual Energy System
• Benchmarking Digital Twin technology through cross sector research to understand the lessons learned and apply them to the energy system
• Achieving an interoperable Digital Twin across the whole energy system and assessing the roadmap that needs to be taken
• Encouraging data sharing throughout the industry and mitigating cybersecurity risks and concerns
• Driving a common framework of Digital Twin technology to optimise the energy system and help achieve energy transition goals by 2035

DER Digital Ecosystem - Using a Digital Mesh ecosystem for local energy management with real time data from a Digital Twin simulation
• Clarifying how the Digital Mesh concept drives an ecosystem of multi-commodities to connect customers to the grid and facilitate the energy transition
• Applying a Digital Mesh concept to local energy management to control multiple energy sources and optimise renewable energy resources
• Utilising IEC 61850 beyond the substation to improve the reliability of renewable energy loads on the grid
• Demonstrating the use of Digital Twin technology to simulate and control the local energy system through real time data of the ecosystem
• Assessing how to standardise a combination of communication protocols in a large ecosystem of actors
• Looking to the future development of autonomous substation control and directing IEC 61850 communication beyond the substation to decentralised assets under Digital Mesh technology

10:00 Morning Refreshment Break
Interoperability - Driving a Digital Twin methodology that connects disparate data systems on a reliable and cybersecure platform to optimise digital substation operations and maximise IEC 61850 capabilities
• Examining how the SIF Project will enable:
                      - Applicable methodology for the power grid drawn from a distribution Digital Twin use case
                      - Connection of disparate systems through a standardised and digitised holistic data connector
• Securing a complex data platform to match the Government’s security strategy by implementing AI innovation technology to embed cybersecurity for intrusion detection and data verification
• Assessing how Digital Twin technology can draw information from substation assets to allow planning and analysis of the network
• Anticipating the next 12 months and evaluating how a Digital Twin substation will maximise the benefits of IEC 61850 communication
Cybersecurity - Digital Twins for IEC 61850 vulnerability assessment, impact analysis and mitigation
• Designing an ecosystem to digitally simulate cyberattacks on the power grid to improve the response of power system operators and security personnel
• Creating infrastructures that utilise Digital Twin technology to simulate system operations and create prototypes to secure the grid, such as:
                       - A control room of the future
                       - Digital substation/RTDS power system via SCADA
• Developing cyber-range to exploit the vulnerabilities of IEC 61850 and using Digital Twin to conduct impact analysis, narrow the search space, mitigate risk, and avoid blackout
• Assessing the system dynamics and purpose of Digital Twin technologies
• Proving the value of adopting software-based solutions such as Digital Twin, Machine Learning & AI to improve the system response to congestion, allow flexibility in operations and foster informed decision making
• Showcasing the future capabilities of Digital Twin technologies and the potential for further research

12:00 Lunch and networking
Maintenance - Applying Network Digital Twin to support engineering maintenance and smart fault detection
• Driving an accurate virtual replica of the physical network to achieve operational excellence and efficiency
• Creating a 3D models repository of existing equipment and new infrastructures to utilise digital twin technology throughout entire life cycles
• Using a network data lake to pool digital twin technology with a continuous flow of data from network devices, IoT and smart sensors in the network and in substations
• Performing predictive maintenance and anomaly detection to ensure safety of work personnel and alert to faults in primary and secondary substations
• Building a network twin that will shape the future of all grid operations and ensure the achievement of sustainable development goals across the smart grid

Workforce Development - using SCADA and IoT data to create a functional 3D Digital Twin and utilise VR technology to train the workforce
• Utilising SCADA and IoT data to create a 3D functional Digital Twin to ensure safe training procedures that avoid accidents and ensure on-site reliability
• Recreating a virtual substation entirely and truly to enable a VR immersive experience for operational personnel to train with a proximity to reality and develop reflex memory of activity
• Driving the mapping of Digital Twins from the substation construction stage until completion to ensure a full 3D model that enhances the immersive experience
• Creating detailed specifications to ensure that the platform and hardware assets match your operational needs
• Assessing how best to overcome cybersecurity risks
• Improving operations through a virtualised Digital Twin that can cross reference system data to diagnose and identify faults
• Training in a remote location that allows for extensive and detailed sessions that can be repeated and specialised to suit operational needs

Afternoon Refreshments and Networking
Roundtable Discussions - During this session the audience breaks out into several smaller working groups, each focused on a specific theme that arose during the day’s presentations. Each working group will comprise of representatives of the entire IEC 61850 community to ensure a well-rounded and holistic discussion.

Roundtable Feedback During this session each working group leader will provide a 5-min summary back to the wider group, highlighting the issues raised, the solutions discussed, and the recommendations made to take the matter to the next level.
