IEC 61850 University is excited to be conducting a training course in New Orleans this week with one of North America’s visionary utilities who are actively deploying this technology within the power utility sector, which includes a process bus pilot project!
The major aspects of IEC 61850 were covered in this 3 Day training course, including the fundamentals and principles and more advanced topics such as:
- Validation techniques for GOOSE & sampled value messages;
- Network design considerations and best practices using network shaping mechanisms, such as VLANs, MAC filtering, etc;
- Testing and virtual isolation mechanisms, including the intended use and sequence of enabling/disabling these testing/simulation attributes;
- Latest updates to IEC 61850 Ed.2/2.1 and the provisions that ought to be taken for multi-vendor mixed systems (Ed.1/Ed.2);
- IEC 61850 Ed.2/2.1 binding mechanisms including the new “Input” element;
- Specification and engineering aspects for top-down and bottom-up workflow processes, which included a system specification and engineering demonstration using the Helinks STS Tool;
Special thank you to Mr. Chan Wong for hosting/coordinating the training course; the group of participants who were engaged in the interactive discussions; as well as Mr. Christoph Brunner and Mr. Alex Apostolov for leading the discussions.
