The Electrical Communication Standard IEC 61850

 

IEC 61850 is the recognised communications standard for substations and has been around for over 20 years. With the continued push for further digitization of the various devices on our electrical system, it is only a matter of time before IEC 61850 becomes standardized across low voltage electrical systems as well. 


Presented by Steven Yan from the IPD Group, this presentation provides a basic overview of the protocol, details some of the advantages and discusses innovative and novel applications previously unavailable or difficult to implement using existing systems.
