Profile Summary 【 Display / hide

  • We live in a very connected world. As the world gets even more connected with the proliferation of connected devices, i.e., Internet of Things (IoT), a paradigm shift will happen in an electric utility system that relies on the mandatory balance of demand and supply. Balancing capabilities must be on standby at the power grid network to fulfill this requirement, showing high dependency on large-scale power plants on the supply side. However, Demand-side Energy Management System (D-EMS) accumulate loads like an air conditioner with network access is becoming the catalyst in influencing the design of the demand and supply balancing formula. IEEE 1547 standards family describe that Demand Response (DR) Aggregator acquires balancing capacities by aggregating DR units, namely Virtual Power Plant (VPP). This research shows that aggregation of D-EMSs that refers to the accumulation of loads with network access like air conditioners showing a characteristic of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), realizes VPP with offering scalability.

    Scope: Case Study on Distance Learning for K-12 Education in Japan: The Nagasaki-Takaoka Model,  Contact page: pp123-pp136

     View Summary

    A pre-existing partnership between the Japanese Government and Keio University paved the way for K-12 education to embrace distance learning. The university has been engaging in the revision of educational ICT policies in Japan for many years. In Japan, universities have been accumulating knowledge in distance learning practices since the emergence of the Internet, though earlier educational ICT policy required the ICT system in K-12 education to depend on dedicated Internet lines. In December 2019, the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT) announced a new ICT policy to allow K-12 education to launch distance learning classes via public cloud on the Internet. The university’s experience with running distance learning, bundled with the stipulations of the new educational ICT policy, enabled K-12 education to carry out distance learning. New subjects can be taught daily, and continuity of education is ensured in disaster situations, such as the Covid-19 pandemic. The research team at Keio University built the “Nagasaki-Takaoka Model” as a reference model with the added aim of ensuring data security and trust in the open network. In December 2020, Takaoka City successfully deployed the “Nagasaki-Takaoka Model” across all public schools.

  • CCRC Technical Report on Security Recommendations for Distributed Energy System Aggregators, Based on METI Cyber and Physical Security Framework

    Masaki Umejima, Selvakumar Manickam, Christian Primack Metcalfe, David Farber, Jun Murai, Jiro Kokuryo, Cherry Wong, Keio University, 2021.10

     View Summary

    Standardization of security protocols in hardware and software engineering is critical to implementing Virtual Power Plants (VPPs). The Cyber and Physical Security Framework presented by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry aims to align the implementation of DER devices with international standards for the configuration of products and services within the global supply chain. The requirement for trust in organizing, implementing, and securing DER systems informs the creation of a multi-tiered approach to gaining trustworthiness.

    In this report, CCRC provides the technology reference for DER system security in alignment with the above framework and suggests the best practices recommendations of security, authentication, and network with the application of various international standards.

As the world gets even more connected with the proliferation of connected devices, i.e., Internet of Things (IoT), a paradigm shift will happen in an electric utility system that relies on the mandatory balance of demand and supply. Balancing capabilities must be on standby at the power grid network to fulfill this requirement, showing high dependency on large-scale power plants on the supply side.

IEEE 1547 standards family describe that Demand Response (DR) Aggregator acquires balancing capacities by aggregating DR units, namely Virtual Power Plant (VPP). This research presented and verified that aggregation of D-EMSs that refers to the accumulation of loads with network access like air conditioners showing a characteristic of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), realized VPP with offering scalability. Significantly, the measurement of D-EMS by a smart power meter with the certification of the centralized authority was able to ensure transparency in VPP as a whole system, removing the weakness of a distributed system.

  • Distance learning with trust over open network policy: Nagasaki-Takaoka Model as a case study on distance learning for K12 education in Japan

    Research paper (scientific journal), Joint Work

     View Summary

    COVID-19 crisis is ascending the needs of distance learning. Keio University has been engaging in the
    revision of educational ICT policies in Japan for many years, however Japanese school network guideline by Ministry
    of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology, Japanese Government (hereinafter refer to MEXT) regulated
    every school to depend on a dedicated line for many years. In December 2019, the new educational network guideline
    announced by MEXT paved the way that every school launches distance learning class on public cloud service
    through the internet access via a public network. The new guideline mandated that the combination of cloud service,
    authentication, and encryption ensures to protect student data, unbundling the security and the network design.
    “Nagasaki-Takaoka Model” in which data trust is ensured on the open network has aimed to be the reference model
    of distance learning for K12 education in Japan. In December 2020. Takaoka City is ready to start distance learning
    in every elementary school and junior high school.
