Open Grid Systems Ltd. is a software and consultancy company providing services to the electrical power industry focussed on model-driven software engineering, open standards and cutting-edge technologies.

Open Grid Systems provides expertise in the areas of data management, information modelling, data transformation, data-exchange technologies, visualisation and power system network analysis software.  We utilise the power of open standards and model-driven architectures to provide modern, scalable solutions to the challenges faced by utilities in the smart-grid enabled world.

At Open Grid Systems we work with a number of utilities, vendors and consultants to facilitate data integration using open standards and model-driven architectures. Our work includes:

  • Helping utilities define and construct their Enterprise Semantic Model to help utilise their data across multiple applications and systems.
  • Working with vendors to add support for international standards to existing applications.  This includes modular frameworks to support standard power system information models such as IEC 61970-301/61968-13/62325-301 (the Common Information Model) and related standards including IEC 61970-452 (Common Power System Model) and IEC 61970-552 (CIM RDF XML).
  • Enabling utilities to create, view, edit and validate data in multiple power system formats using our own Cimphony software.  We also work with clients to support internal additions and extensions to the standard allowing them to use our standard tools with their extended models.
  • Undertaking applied research with International Research Institutes and Universities to explore cutting edge technologies for the Smart Grid.
