Hardware and software design strategies for smart energy devices



The Smart Energy Profile (SEP) 2.0 is quickly becoming the go-to standard for developing innovative connected products and services for the Smart Grid. Information flow between meters, smart appliances, and energy management systems must seamlessly occur in an open, standardized, and interoperable fashion. The SEP 2.0 specification establishes a standard for communication interoperability and security for networked appliances and meters participating in a smart grid. In this session you will learn about the requirements to develop a SEP 2.0 compliant device and explore the hardware and software strategies you can apply to address the connectivity and security requirements laid out by the specification.

What You Will Learn

In this session you will learn:

  1. What does SEP 2.0 mean for your next design?
  2. What kind of hardware should you pick for your device?
  3. What kind of software makes the most sense?
  4. What challenges does the SEP 2.0 specification introduce to your design?
  5. How to minimize the Bill of material and the development times to minimize the per unit costs of your device?
  6. How to effectively manage the power consumption of your device?
