The design and development of control and management systems for the automation of elements of a power and/or transformer station is hardly rocket science. Things can become more complicated when we look into the requirements needed to implement a host of different protection and security mechanism, coupled with the integration of a communication solution in accordance with IEC 61850.
In addition to selecting a suitable MMS stack for communication and ensuring that the communication on this stack is effected via the mechanisms defined in the IEC 61850 standard, the configuration files, i.e. ICD files in SCL format, must be prepared for the Intelligent Electronic Devices (IED). The defined scope of application decides which characteristics an IED must ultimately have. However, do all required mechanisms, such as communication via GOOSE, or reporting or even sampled values, function accurately? Tests performed in the design and development laboratory can support to reveal fundamental problems to attain compliance to the IEC 61850 standard.
