Standard IEC 61850-7-420 (DER) now available

A further part of IEC 61850 "Communication networks and systems for power utility automation" has been published:

Part 7-420: Basic communication structure – Distributed energy resources logical nodes

This standard in conjunction with other standards of the series IEC 61850 and IEC 61400-25 provide a comprehensive set of standardized means to engineer, monitor, operate and maintain distributed energy systems.

One of the key issues to understand is the fact that many tools, software and IEDs (like programmable controller, HMI clients, etc.) developed for IEC 61850 can be used for distributed energy applications.
