  • IEC 61850

  • IEC 61850 Before IEC 61850 -  Power substations were mostly managed by substation

    automation systems that -  Utilize simple, straightforward and highly specialized communication

    protocols  Less concerned about the semantics of the exchanged data

     Devices from different manufacturers used different substation automation protocols, disabling them to talk to each other

     Utilities were paying enormous money and time to configure the devices to work together in a substation

     Hence, device manufacturers recognized the need for a unified international standard to support seamless cooperation among products from different vendors

     The IEC 61850 international standard, drafted by substation automation domain experts from 22 countries

  • IEC 61850  Takes advantage of a comprehensive object-oriented

    data model and the Ethernet technology  Part 1 to Part 3 - general ideas about the standard  Part 4 – defining the project and management

    requirements in an IEC 61850 enabled substation  Part 5 - specifying the required parameters for physical

    implementation  Part 6 - defining an XML based language for IED

    configuration  Part 7 - elaborating on the logical concepts  Part 8 – mapping of the internal objects to the

    presentation layer and to the Ethernet link layer  Part 9 - mapping from sampled measurement value

    (SMV) to point-to-point Ethernet

  • IEC 61850 Interface Model

    Source: ABB

  • IEC 61850 - ACSI Abstract Communications Service Interface - ACSI

     Defines a set of Objects

     Defines a set of Services to manipulate and access those objects

     Defines a base set of data types for describing objects

     Example ACSI services – GetDataSetValue, CreateDataSet, DetDataDirectory

  • IEC 61850 - SMV Sampled Measured Values (SMV)

  • IEC 61850 - GOOSE IEC61850 Generic Object Oriented Substation Event - GOOSE

     Device to multi-device communication – Local or Wide Area

     Bridgeable but Non-routable  User-defined Dataset sent in an

    Ethernet Multicast message  Message sent on change of state as

    well periodically to enable detection of device failure

     Reliability effected through message repeat

    GOOSE Header: • Multicast Address • Name • Time Until Next GOOSE • Etc.

    User-Defined Dataset • Status Information • Analog Values • Data Quality • Time

  • IEC 61850 – GOOSE Messaging

  • IEC 61850 – GSSE/MMS Generic Substation State Events (GSSE)

     Only Status data can be exchanged through GSSE and it uses a status list (string of bits) rather than a dataset as is used in GOOSE

     GSSE messages are transmitted directly over IEC/ISO 8802-2 and 8802-3 (IEEE 802.3) using a similar mechanism to GOOSE messages

     As the GSSE format is simpler than GOOSE it is handled faster in some devices.

     GSSE is being progressively superseded by the use of GOOSE and support for it may eventually disappear

    Manufacturing Message Specification (MMS)

    It is a messaging system for transferring real time process data and supervisory control information between networked devices and/or computer applications. MMS Defines the following -

     A set of standard objects which must exist in every device, on which operations like read, write, event signaling etc. can be executed.

     A set of standard messages exchanged between a client and a server stations for the purpose of monitoring and/or controlling these objects.

     A set of encoding rules for mapping these messages to bits and bytes when transmitted.

  • IEC 61850 - SCL SCL – Substation Configuration Language

     Description language for communication in electrical substations related to the IEDs

     XML based language that allows a formal description of - – Substation automation system and the switchyard and the

    relation between them – IED configuration – IEC 61850 language used in the XML files is called SCL

    IEC 61850: The SCL language (IED modelling)


    IEC 61850: The SCL language (IED modelling) It is possible to “structure” the Logical Nodes, and group them under different Logical Devices. The “rules” of this structure are described in the XML file.

  • The SCL file also describes what the IED can do (services). In this case it seems that the IED cannot offer upload of disturbance recorder file, as the “FileHandling Service” is not listed:
