TÜV SÜD organizes IEC 61400-25 (IEC 61850) Interoperability Workshop on 18.-19. March 2013

The USE61400-25 user group focuses on minimizing the interoperability risks of communication between devices or/and systems claiming conformance to the IEC 61400-25 standard. In order to fulfill this goal, interoperability workshops are held periodically. The next workshop will be held on 18.-19. March 2013.

This interoperability workshop is free of charge for all current USE61400-25 members. Nonmembers are cordially invited to join the workshop as well. To subscribe for the interoperability workshop please return the signed registration form to the testing team [Word doc].

The interoperability workshop will be held at
TÜV Süd, Ridlerstr. 65, Raum E005
80339 München, Germany

18th and 19th of March 2013.
18th March: 13:00 – 18:00
19th March: 9:00 – 12:00

Please note that the standard IEC 61400-25 is based on IEC 61850 in general and on IEC 61850-8-1 (MMS Mapping) in particular. The MMS Mapping is – to my knowledge – the solution that is used in most applications. The interoperability test is thus also a kind of an IEC 61850 interoperability test. as can be seen from the registration form:


One of the supporting turbine manufacturers that offers IEC 61400-25 connectivity is REpower. In a paper Repower published recently they referred to IEC 61850 as the basis for IEC 61400-25. See also blog post on the paper.
