IEC 61850 for DER systems at PGE (Portland, OR)

One of the latest announcements to use and support IEC 61850 comes from the US - from Portland General Electric (PGE) ... according to ISA's InTech news report 2008-10.

"... PGE received a grant from GridApp to take GenOnSys applications to the next version, GenOnSys 2.0. “In order to be able to go into that world, we wanted a standard [IEC 61850-7-420] we and other utilities could use to allow everyone to do things the same way,”

"GenOnSys is able to provide a distributed realtime monitoring, live video cameras, and alarming system based on the IEC 61850-7-420 object standard for all sites."
