Management information base module for electrical power system configuration and use

Artur Opaliński


Internet standards describe a virtual information store, termed the Management Information Base (MIB), which is made available through Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). No standard MIB exists to date for monitoring power lines in facilities over IP network. This paper defines a subset of the MIB for power system monitoring.
