IEC 61850 Gateway for PLCs

A master thesis by Jonas Lidén (2006, Stockholm/Sweden) discusses the use of IEC 61850 for Vattenfall Vattenkraft AB’s technical systems for turbine controllers. The work started with an investigation of today’s automation products with focus on station bus communication. Today Vattenfall Vattenkraft AB are modernising their automation products in many of their hydro power plants, and the turbine controllers are developed by SwedPower AB on standard PLC’s (Programmable Logic Controller).

The report describes the implementation and the results of the testing.
