Title: Energy grid device commissioning method and system

Abstract: A commissioning method and system. The method includes receiving details of a configuring process enabled by a power grid monitoring/control device associated with a power grid network topology comprising monitoring points associated and a power distribution grid. The power grid network topology is validated with respect to a configuration of measurement types, event types, and controls of the power distribution grid. Network point identifiers for each of the monitoring points are retrieved and a mapping report associating the power grid monitoring/control device with the power grid network topology using the network point identifiers is generated. The power grid monitoring/control device is registered for remote operation functionality and multiple grid events. The power grid monitoring/control device is commissioned into the power distribution grid.
