North America - IEC 61850 is riding the leading edge of progress

Progress of IEC 61850 has arrived in North America according to the March 2011 Newton-Evans Research report “Market Trends Digest, March 2011”.

The report found out interesting figures, e.g., “Within the Substation, IEC 60870-5-103 was the most frequently used protocol (40%). IEC 61850 (31%) fell close to serial protocols Modbus (31%) and DNP3 (33%), however, 24% indicated that they plan on implementing IEC 61850 within the substation by YE 2013. If that becomes the case, IEC 61850 will become the most used protocol by far.
