Conference paper

Abstract

The Information exchange has taken on increasing importance for the restructured energy industry. A standard communications protocol that powers this information exchange, even between incompatible communication systems, enables improved system performance, often accompanied by dramatic cost savings. Developed collaboratively by a team including energy companies, vendors, and EPRI, the Telecontrol Application Service Element or TASE.2 (EEC standard 60870-6 TASE.2 — also known as the Inter-Control Center Communications Protocol or ICCP in the United States) facilitates seamless exchange of time-critical data over local and wide area networks. TASE.2 is the most capable, widely adopted open communications protocol available to the electric power industry today. TASE.2 defines open functions and an object model for application data. TASE.2 supports the integration of instrumentation and control into the corporate wide information and data processing in any application domains, e.g., utilities, manufacturing, or process control.
