Multi-Level Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) Using the Data Distribution Services (DDS) for Synchronized Three-Phase Measurement Data Transfer

This paper presents the design and implementation of a Multi-level Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) protocol based on a real-time communication platform utilizing Data Distribution Service (DDS) middleware for data transfer of synchronous three phase measurement data. To transfer ultra-high three phase measurement samples, the DDS open-source protocol is exploited to shape the network’s data traffic according to specific Quality of Service (QoS) profiles, leading to low packet loss and low latency by synchronizing and prioritizing the data in the network.

Message Oriented Middleware with QoS Support for Smart Grids

The rapid growth on the adoption of smart grids technologies is enabling the improvement of efficiency, reliability and security on energy distribution and consumption. The efficiency increase comes from the overall monitor- ing of the electricity network, and from the capability of acting upon loads in order to better adapt to overall and local energy production from traditional sources and renewables.
