Building the Semantic Utility with Standards and Semantic Web Services
In: OTM 2008 Workshops
Within this contribution, we outline the need for standards in use nowadays in the utility industry. We motivate the need for modern industry standards such as those developed by the International Electrotechnical Commission and introduce concepts based on those standards to foster integration in a modern utility environment using service-oriented architectures and semantic Web services. The focus lies on COLIN, a methodology applicable to overcome fallacies regarding the integration of different industry standards. Furthermore, we propose the usage of information allocated using the COLIN methodology to annotate Web services with semantic information.

Implementing and evaluating the Common Information Model in a relational and RDF-based Database
In: ITEE 2007 - Third International ICSC Symposium; Oldenburg
During the last decade, the Common Information Model (CIM) has evolved to an extensive ontology for the domain of energy markets. As the CIM does only offer an UML model for the implementation of its ob-jects, an ER model or relational database schema has not been released. Therefore, it is necessary to create a CIM based database schema in order to persist CIM data in a relational database. This schema could either be constructed based on the former mentioned UML model as a relational da-tabase schema or based on an already existing RDF/XML serialization of CIM as an RDF database. This paper evaluates these two implementations of the CIM.
