Definitions Edit

General Edit

A reference model is

[a] framework for understanding significant relationships among the entities of some environment, and for the development of consistent standards or specifications supporting that environment. A reference model is based on a small number of unifying concepts and may be used as a basis for education and explaining standards to a non-specialist.[1]

Smart grid Edit

A reference model is

a set of views (diagrams) and descriptions that provides the basis for discussing the characteristics, uses, behavior, interfaces, requirements, and standards of the Smart Grid. This model does not represent the final architecture of the Smart Grid; rather, it is a tool for describing, discussing, and developing that architecture.[2]
