IEC just Published Amendments to Three Core Parts of IEC 61850 as FDIS

Hurrah, after long wait ... now they are published:

IEC just Published amendments of the following three Core Parts of IEC 61850 as FDIS:

IEC 61850-7-2 - Services (57/2100/FDIS) - 138 pages
IEC 61850-7-3 - Common data classes (57/2101/FDIS) - 108 pages
IEC 61850-7-4 - Logical Nodes and Data Objects (57/2102/FDIS) - 422 pages

These amendments will be merged into the previous editions and made available as consolidated documents after FDIS ballot (Edition 2.1).

The consolidated documents (published as INF documents) comprise:

IEC 61850-7-2 (181 pages)
IEC 61850-7-3 (135 pages)
IEC 61850-7-4 (440 pages)

One of the most crucial issue solved now is the harmonization of definitions used in different domains like substation, protection, wind, hydro, DER, batteries, schedules, ...

NOTE: The three new documents (and the many other parts published or underway, e.g., 80-x, 90-x) make the standard series IEC 61850 even more comprehensive and MORE COMPLEX.

I hope that there will be enough people responsible for the future of the digitalization in the energy world understanding that there is no free lunch!! Education and training is key!

IEC 61850-7-2

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous
edition, based on almost 100 tissues ... and other issues.

IEC 61850-7-3

Compared to the second edition, this first revision of the second edition provides mainly clarifications and corrections to the second edition of IEC 61850-7-3, based on almost 100 tissues ... and other issues.

IEC 61850-7-4 

The motivation and goal of the amendment is to improve consistency of the data model over
all application domains of IEC 61850. Data (Logical Nodes, Data Objects, Data Attributes)
with the same semantics shall have the same naming where this part of IEC 61850 refers to
Logical Nodes and Data Objects and IEC 61850-7-3 to the Data Attributes.
Therefore, the amendement complements and updates the second edition of this part of
IEC 61850, which was published in 2010. It constitutes editorial revisions for consistency and
technical corrections of bugs as far as interoperability is touched.
To reach this goal and to keep it for all future as common working source a comprehensive
back-office UML version was created and will be maintained for future standard development.
The published parts of IEC 61850 such as IEC 61850-7-4, on which the amendment is based,
are generated automatically from the UML version. This allows publishing, voting and reading
the various parts of IEC 61850-7 as in the past.
This amendment includes changes with respect to IEC 61850-7-4:2010 based on almost 200 Tissues ... and other issues.
