ABB's latest activities and support with regard to IEC 61350


Der Standard IEC 61850
Offene Kommunikation in Schaltanlagen im deregulierten Strommarkt
von Dr. Klaus-Peter Brand, Dr. Wolfgang Wimmer (ABB Schweiz)

Der Standard IEC 61850 ist ein leistungsfähiger, zukunftssicherer Kommunikationsstandard mit einer Modellierung auf semantischer Ebene. Er wird in Kürze offene Schaltanlagen-Automatisierungssysteme ermöglichen und mit allen seinen Eigenschaften die Konkurrenzfähigkeit der Benutzer im deregulierten Markt deutlich erhöhen.

XML in IEC 61850 standard

IEC 61850 is an emerging standard for communication within Substation Automation (SA) systems, striving for interoperability among devices (e.g. bay control units) as well as system levels (e.g. bay units and operator station).
Part 6 of the standard defines the so called Substation Configuration Language (SCL). The SCL describes the SA system configuration as well as the switchyard structure. It will mainly be used by engineering tools as import/export format.

Major advantages of XML are: huge tool support (off-the-shelf), world-wide acceptance, good integration with Web Technologies, etc.Thus, the use of XML as description language will:

  • drastically reduce the implementation effort of SCL related tools
  • improve acceptance of the SCL and the whole standard in general

The prototypes prove the concept and can serve as sample implementations.
