VOLTTRON Message Bus Protocol Adapter

VOLTTRON is an open, distributed, agent-based control and sensing software platform that is designed to facilitate more efficient management of energy use among appliances and devices, including heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, lighting, electric vehicles and others. The goals of this project are:

  • Extend the VOLTTRON platform with a common data model and include support for SEP2, DNP3 and OCPP, which are the most commonly used protocols for grid transactions and electric vehicle charging management. 
  • Deploy a reference implementation at both SLAC's GISMo Laboratory and NREL's ESIF that is connected to live loads, energy resources and storage to provide geographically distributed references to the relevant industry.
