IEC 61850 IED Configuration Guides & IEDScout Job Aides
Tesco was engaged to build on the success of our Configuration Guides which are used in the IEC 61850 University’s Mobile Digital Substation hands-on process bus training. The original format consists of settings and configurations summary, along with high-level steps following the “IEC 61850 integration workflow”, and some specific hints and tips to help the course participants navigate IED vendor tools they may not have previous experience with.
Tesco developed detailed training and reference manuals for each of the client’s four IED vendors, including the IEC 61850 integration workflow steps, references between the vendor proprietary terminology and IEC 61850 standard terminology, highlighting the representation of configurations in drawing or table form versus the actual vendor IED configuration tools (ICT) versus the actual configuration in the substation configuration language (SCL / XML).
In addition, Tesco produced detailed job aides covering the usage of Omicron IEDScout and other related troubleshooting tools in a live substation environment. These job aides were designed to introduce the capabilities of the tool and to gain experience with simulated scenarios in which these capabilities might be useful.
All of this was achieved using implementations of the client’s standard schemes, so the material covered by the materials is directly applicable to the client’s actual field installations.
