What are the typical feature of IEC61850?
Typical features of IEC 61850 are listed below:
Interoperability: Different vendors are allowed to provide complete integration of monitoring, protection and control functions within one or two IEDs.
Free Configuration: Any possible number of substation protection and control functions can be integrated at bay level IED.
Simple Architecture: As the plenty of point-to-point copper wires are reduced to just simple Ethernet based communication links. Further, functional hierarchy architecture provides better communication performance for time critical applications.
Overall Cost Saving: The high-speed digital communication at process level allows replacing the traditional copper wiring using communication link, which could save a lot of effort and cost for substation automation system.
