Grid Modernization Initiatives

Client Engagement Background

In support of Southern California Edison’s (SCE) Grid Modernization Strategy, Xtensible is part of
SCE’s Enterprise Architecture team. Business requirements were articulated and the Concept
of Operations was created, which frames the desired modernization capabilities. Building on that
progress, the architecture was created for a new Grid Management System (GMS) and the various
components it requires to adequately meet the emerging needs. Xtensible’s MD3i framework
is being used to drive out the data management solution of the Grid Modernization System by
creating a semantic model and corresponding artifacts for meeting requirements for both data in
motion and data at rest.
