Christoph Brunner about origins of IEC 61850 and its future developments

The new episode of Big Energy, produced by Tekvel team, is already on YouTube. This time we met Christoph Brunner - convenor of IEC TC57 WG10 - who knows everything about IEC 61850, what has been in the past and what is coming in the future. Enjoy, like and share with engineers community!

Describing non-61850 devices in the the SCL-file
Describing non-61850 devices in the the SCL-file

Tekvel Park detects host on the network by their different communication activities, displaying them as GHOST IEDs if they were not described in an SCD-file. This post shows a way to describe non-61850 IEDs (as well as HMI PCs and other network devices) in the SCL file, thus forcing Tekvel Park not to detect them as ghosts.

Realtime and post-event Sampled Values analysis with Tekvel Park
Realtime and post-event Sampled Values analysis with Tekvel Park

Tekvel Park is known to be industry's first tool to visualise GOOSE and SV communications between the IEDs of different manufacturers including vendor-specific syntax analysis to provide a complete picture of communications. With this newest version we introduce fully-featured Live Mode and Event Recording for Tekvel Park.

Bad habit of using GGIO logical nodes
Bad habit of using GGIO logical nodes

There are quite a few people saying that GGIO is a bad thing. Having a good semantic model provided by IEC 61850, it’s pretty silly to get rid of semantics by means of GGIO. However, it happens a lot due to several reasons. We tried to investigate how relevant the problem is, and what are primary factors for that.

Enjoy spectacular views on GOOSE communications in substations
Enjoy spectacular views on GOOSE communications in substations

We are really excited to present a tool, which assists protection and control engineers to create projects and work with projects with IEC 61850 GOOSE communications. Inside our team we named this tool as GOOSE wheel. We are sure that similar to Ferris wheel which provides spectacular view on a certain areas in our real life, GOOSE Wheel will provide spectacular views on IEC 61850 GOOSE enabled substations worldwide.

Pitfall with GOOSE subscription in DIGSI 4.90
Pitfall with GOOSE subscription in DIGSI 4.90

We like Siemens IEDs and do often reference DIGSI configuration tool as a very deliberate instrument to configure IEC 61850 communications. But having updated to version 4.90 of the tool, we encountered a pitfall in configuration of GOOSE communications. We have managed to understand and resolve a problem, only having looked into SCD file. We decided to tell the story so that other engineers do not waste their time (because it is always what we lack).
