IEC 61850 Edition 2.1 of Core Documents Published

The other day IEC TC 57 has published five more parts as Edition 2.1 - it took several years to get there! But finally it was successful.

I would call these Edition 2.1 documents simply the real Edition 2 documents.

First of all, what does Edition 2.1 mean?

The original edition 2 documents needed some corrections and updates. All crucial corrections et cetera have been documented in the Tissue Database (https://iec61850.tissue-db.com/default.mspx). The solutions provided on the Tissue Database have been used as input to the standardization process and led to amendments number 1 of the corresponding parts. These amendments have been commented and balloted officially by the members of TC 57. These amendments 1 are now the official documents that are amending the edition 2 documents (both are valid for the next years).

In order to make the "edition 2.1" more readable and understandable, there are other documents available: The consolidated parts 2.1 ... comprising the "old" stuff, the fixes and the extensions.

Consolidated Version of part 7-2: https://webstore.iec.ch/publication/66525 :

So: This consolidated version consists of the second edition (2010) and its amendment 1 (2020). Therefore, no need to order the amendment in addition to this publication.

Note: The first Tissues for edition 2.1 have already be posted, e.g., for part 7-2 Edition 2.1:

The following Previews for edition 2.1 consolidated versions are available:
