Abstract:


This paper analyzes different Web service
technologies that can be used for data exchange in Smart Grids.
The focus is put on smart metering in electricity networks and
the required data exchange for different application scenarios. It
contributes a detailed comparison of available interface
technologies, in particular Web services. The evaluation is
performed based on a qualitative comparison using a criteria
catalogue and literature research and a quantitative comparison
based on an empirical field test using a test bed. The results show
that binary protocols require less computational resources but
lack several qualitative advantages. Furthermore it can be seen
that recent optimizations for XML data exchange reduce the
performance gap.
