IEC 61850 Information Models for Large Power Plants

Experts defining and using IEC 61850 for hydro power plants are working on the second edition IEC 61850-7-410 (Hydroelectric power plants – Communication for monitoring and control). This second edition will comprise quite comprehensive models for large power plants - the device models cover more or less the whole electrical side, while the mechanical side covers only hydro power plants.

It is intended to use the existing definitions of the electrical side (Power System Stabilizer functions, complete excitation systems, other controls, ...) for other Large (non-hydro) Power Plants. And further it is intended to convince experts of non-hydro Power Plants to start working on extended/new models for mechanical components of large plants.

Please post a comment (see below) on the above.
