Abstract

As AMI system is applyed in Korea gradually, electric company can provide a lot of services to customers like DR(Demand Response), CSS (Customer Service System). In this case, field deployed devices which are AMI’s basic component must be able to upgrade its firmware to support the services. In this paper, we introduce the remote firmware upgrade management system(FUMS) using distributed processing for field deployed device like DCU, and HAN Devices(Smart Meter, IHD, LCD,PCD) in Korea AMI. This article provides FUMS architectures and the upgrade process of communication between FUMS Server and DCU and between DCU and HAN Devices.
