How to analyze digital substation traffic efficiently and can we automate it?
How to analyze digital substation traffic efficiently and can we automate it?

In this paper we will review several Wireshark features which allow for more efficient network traffic capture analysis; we will find out where can we take network traffic capture files from and what are the basic requirements for these files; last but not least - we will see if we can automate capturing and analysis of digital substation traffic.

Verification of SCD files for digital substations: requirements and practical experience
Verification of SCD files for digital substations: requirements and practical experience

This paper describes the fundamentals and practical experience of performing analysis and quality assurance of SCL files for digital substations. The basic requirements for visualization of SCD files, verification and detailed analysis of IEC 61850-based data exchange are presented.

Disrespectful Sampled Values subscriber behaviour
Disrespectful Sampled Values subscriber behaviour

Teaser: Some IEDs require that SV (or maybe GOOSE) messages on ingress port of the IED have proper VLAN tag (as configured in the subscription), thus resulting in failure to receive the untagged messages (or messages with another VLAN ID tag). Such behaviour of an IED is wrong but sometimes you can meet this. Read the full article to dig into the details.

When GOOSE can't fly!
When GOOSE can't fly!

Everyone who ever dealt with the commissioning of IEC 61850 based systems had situations when there were problems in establishing successful GOOSE communications between IEDs. The reasons for that are always different. There may be a fault of the commissioning engineer, a fault of the vendor or it may be a fault of both parties at the same time. We have faced such situation recently and this was the case when one could blame... decide yourself who is to blame in this situation, having read this note about nuances in configuring GOOSE-communications between IEDs of two different vendors.
