New: Hands-On Training with Real Devices and Process Signals

19 years after IEC 61850 standardization started, 10 years after publication of the first set of IEC 61850 core documents, and 10 years after intensive training worldwide, we are now facing a new challenge: Can everybody do hands-on work with the new technology without spending a lot of money?

Yes, You can – if you work with NettedAutomation GmbH.

NettedAutomation GmbH is entering into a new phase of training: using real devices and solutions to work with in the public 3 days general training courses. The program of the 3 days courses is as follows:

  • 1 1/2 days Introduction and basics on IEC 61850 (and briefly on IEC 60870-5-104)
  • 1/2 day Hands-on training on designing ICD and CID documents
  • 1/2 day Configuring and using Server devices for monitoring and control using IEC 61850 and IEC 60870-5-104
  • 1/2 day Configuring and using Client devices for IEC 61850 and gateways to IEC 60870-5-104 and proxy server to IEC 61850

The first new training session according to this program will be conducted from October 15-17, 2014 in Frankfurt (Germany). The hands-on sessions using real devices, as depicted in the following figure, show the devices involved. Further evaluation software running under Windows (offered for free) will be provided at the beginning of the course.


On request we are preparing the above evaluation package with one com.tom 3.1S (104 Server, 61850 client and server), one com.tom 5.1 (104 Server, 61850 Server, Modbus client), a simple meter with Modbus RTU, 24 V power supply, relay to operate a fan, and a fan - mounted on DIN Rail. The com.tom (application, communication, and gateways) are configured via a web browser and a CID file – no programming or extra tools required.

Contact NettedAutomation GmbH to receive an offer for the above evaluation set, for the training in Frankfurt in October, or for an in-house training.

NettedAutomation will provide several evaluation sets for the hands-on training in October. For in-house hands-on training NettedAutomation can offer communication with these and other devices – even: bring your own devices.

By the way, beginning in fall 2014, NettedAutomation will also offer (with senior power and protection engineers) intensive 3 days Seminars on Protection and Control with IEC 61850 for HV/MV substations using GOOSE, SV, SCADA, … SCL:

  • IEC 61850 Introduction and experience. Where are we today?
  • Return of experience and application: with Protection and Control (mainly in medium and high voltage) Substation Automation and with SCADA systems.

All Presentations will be supported by practical examples

Contact NettedAutomation for further details on the special protection and SCADA training courses.

Please stay tuned.
