With NERC pushing TOP-001-06, transmission operators are required to model external facilities and their impacts in their real-time operation model. However, differences in the format a structure of modeling data lead to challenges in inter-entity information exchange. To address this challenge, Common Information Model (CIM)-based methodologies were proposed to facilitate inter-corporate big data management. With API, the proposed methodologies successfully standardized and automated the procedure to integrate and maintain external regions of the En management System (EMS) of American Electric Power (AEP). For the past five years, the bulk and incremental CIM-based methodologies have facilitated more than thirty rounds of External Model Update (XMU) in AEP. Furthermore, R&D projects were launched to extend the compatibility of the proposed methodologies so that they can be used with different vendor-supplied EMS. The purpose of the tutorial is to share experience on utility modeling data management with fellow entities. We hope our practice could bring insights to industrial peers and further prom interoperability.
