- Standards Perspective
Tesco is actively involved in the development and maintenance of the relevant standards, including IEC 61850 and IEC 61869. We are fortunate to have tested and evaluated many of the IEC 61850 process bus devices that are available, and understand the strengths of each device.
- End-User Perspective
From an end-user’s perspective Tesco has assisted with the creation of an International IEC 61850 Process Bus User Task Force, which is composed of 20 power utilities across 7 countries.
The objective of this international task force is to identify, document, classify, and prioritize the common concerns and recommendation found across international process bus users, so they can be shared with the process bus industry stakeholders. It aims to establish a consensus among utilities as it pertains to the business justification, technological challenges, and designing/testing methodologies related to IEC 61850 process bus.
