What is IEC 61850?
IEC 61850 is not just a communications protocol. It is a comprehensive standard for the design ofsubstation automation systems and applications.
- how to describe the devices in an electrical substation and
- how to exchange the information about these devices
- at configuration time and
- at run-time.
IEC 61850 is the global standard for power utility automation and Smart Grids. It is a key standard to enable interoperability between equipment and systems from different manufacturers.
