Since the Common Information Model is all about power system data, this working group is critical for the success of the CIM. The Model Exchange and Naming Working Group is tasked with formulating global and unambiguous reference designations for electrical power system objects defined within the CIM. With regard to data models, the group is concerned with the definition of Model Authority Sets, model boundaries, model notations, and the rules of model exchange. The group manages the development and documentation of specifications associated with model conventions.
The CIM supports a reference designation system that can be used for globally unique identification of Power System Resources. A Master Resource Identification (MRID) provides this unique identifier and provides benefits such as support for integration of a network model and an asset model within electric utilities.
