CIM Course View


Expand your understanding of the general information model.

TS2O1 School presents a basic CIM (Common Information Model) training course that will help you expand your understanding and see the possibilities of using CIM to solve various tasks, including digitalization tasks. You will get acquainted with usage scenarios and relevant elements of standards that are important for the safe and efficient operation of the power system.

Digitalization of the power system can be viewed through the prism of improving the data quality (completeness, availability, reliability, relevance, integrity) of the power system through the integration of information and communication technologies such as SCADA (dispatch control and data collection), EMS, DMS, GIS (geoinformation system) and AMR (automatic meter readings) and ERP systems (enterprise resource planning).

The requirements for data quality will increase more and more, especially given the consumer orientation of energy enterprises and the need to perform network operations in a mode close to real time. A key condition for improving data quality is understanding the relationships between top-level business processes and the state of equipment and assets.

The creation of a single source of reliable data will ensure observability, interoperability and optimize data flows during network planning and operation. It will also simplify business analytics and the search for patterns in asset management processes, profitability analysis and system lifecycle management processes.

The course will talk about how CIM can support digitalization, as well as provide an overview of the standards that define CIM and its main processes.

Who is this course for?

* For organizations that have already decided on the need to implement CIM to manage the network model, or want to learn more about how CIM can be useful;
* For professionals who implement CIM in their organization or want to use it in their personal projects;
* For managers, data owners, data architects and developers of information interaction interfaces who need modern knowledge of CIM.
