First Draft on how to use IEC 61850 models in substations (IEC 61850-7-500)

IEC TC 57 has recently published a first Draft IEC TR 61850-7-500 – Use of logical nodes for modelling applications and related concepts and guidelines for substations (57/1371/DC). The document comprises almost 60 pages.

Comments are requested by 2013-07-12 at the latest.

The technical report is intended to provide guidelines and explanations, how the logical nodes defined in IEC 61850-7-4 shall be combined and used to model applications from substation automation domain.

A crucial goal is to show the most common application of Logical Nodes in
modelling simple and complex functions, to improve common understanding in modelling and data exchange, and finally to lead to implementations which keep at least interoperability.

For those people that are interested in process bus applications, it is highly recommended that you review that document!

If you are interested in this work, please contact your national mirror committee of TC 57.
