One challenging aspect of the energy transition and expansion of DER, per FERC Order 2222, will be handling the plethora of legacy interfaces used to manage grid devices. A NAESB standard, OpenFMB, is an enabling technology that overcomes these legacy interface challenges by providing a common interface to help manage these multi-protocol legacy devices. This article describes a DOE initiative, Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium (GMLC) Resilient Distribution System (RDS) project titled “Increasing Distribution System Resiliency using Flexible DER and Microgrid Assets Enabled by OpenFMB” which will lay the foundation for this very important and enabling technology for a successful energy transition and full adoption of FERC Order 2222 DER devices into the grid command and control infrastructure.
