IEC 61850-7-410 A1 Ed.2 – Amendment for several new models just published

IEC 61850-7-410 A1 Ed.2 (57/1485/CDV): Amendment 1 to IEC 61850-7-410 Ed.2: Communication networks and systems for power utility automation - Part 7-410: Basic communication structure - Hydroelectric power plants - Communication for monitoring and control

has been published for comments and vote by 2014-12-12

The reason for the amendment is that a number of logical nodes, originally intended for hydropower plants, have been found to have wider usage in power system control. To make them more generic, the logical node names are modified and, in some cases, additional data objects are added. A few completely new logical nodes are also added.

Within the scope of WG18, some of the logical nodes have been modified to allow usage in thermal power plants for power evacuation related components such as excitation, synchronization, frequency and active power control as well as electrical protection devices.

Process control for thermal power plants is not included in the scope of this amendment.
