Your Duties and Responsibilities

The goal of this task is to provide a tailored interface for the data collection from networks and the transmission of commands/setpoints for the safe and reliable operation of the system. The data collected by the field instruments will be provided to the Open ICT platform according to a specific data model. The acquired data will be leveraged for the energy services developed. The sensing and monitoring layer specification will be technology-independent, but a reference implementation will be developed by extending existing DC and AC monitoring infrastructures by adopting and upscaling FIWARE compliant solutions. On top of the monitoring layer reconciliation and harmonization tools are necessary to support all the key functionalities that the ICT platform will integrate. It is necessary to develop tools for reconciliating, harmonizing and analysing monitoring data.
