IEC 61850 based substation automation systems – Users expectations and stakeholders interactions



The IEC 61850 standard series has gradually replaced old protocols in Digital Substation Automation Systems. Its main user benefit is to allow interoperability between Intelligent Electronic Devices of different vendors in automation systems and increase DSAS engineering efficiency. However, early implementation experiences pointed out several difficulties in applying the standard. This Brochure covers both general and detailed level user expectations for IEC 61850 based DSAS and describes main stakeholder interactions that are needed in order to improve the interoperability.
