Conformity of Intelligent Electronic Devices (IED) according to IEC 61850
Intelligent electronic devices which communicate via interfaces and protocols as defined in IEC 60870-5-101 or -104 have been used for the control and management of power generation and distribution systems for years. However, the IEC 61850 communication standard has become increasingly accepted in recent years as it also includes the definition and use of a logical link. New and modernised power or transformer stations increasingly use this new communication standard. Given this, almost all owners and operators of power stations and power distribution systems now make this standard a requirement. Manufacturers of IEDs are therefore forced to implement this communication mechanism in accordance with the IEC 61850 standard in their devices.
