THE COURSE

Older (‘legacy’) substation automation protocols and hardware/software architectures provided basic functionality for power system automation, and were designed to accommodate the technical limitations of the technologies available at the time. However, in recent years there have been vast improvements in technology, especially on the networking side. This has opened the door for dramatic improvements in the approach to power system automation in substations.

IEC61850 is a part of the International Electro-technical Commission (IEC) Technical Committee 57 (TC57) architecture for electric power systems. It is an important international standard for substation automation, and it is having a significant impact on how electric power systems are designed and built for the future. The model-driven approach of IEC61850 is an innovative approach and requires a new way of thinking about substation automation. This will result in significant improvements in the costs and performance of electric power systems.

This online course provides comprehensive coverage of IEC 61850 and will provide you with the tools and knowledge to tackle your next substation automation project with confidence.

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO:

  • Explain the basic scope and outline of IEC 61850 (including the latest revisions)
  • Describe the IEC 61850 hardware architecture for substation automation
  • Use the IEC 61850 data model to specify a substation automation system
  • Use the IEC 61850 model as a data integration platform
  • Specify the most appropriate networking components for substation automation
  • Perform device independent system specification and engineering
  • Create SSD, ICD, IID and SCD files
  • Create, capture and analyse GOOSE messages

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This online course is designed for personnel with a need to understand the techniques required to use and apply IEC 61850 to substation automation, hydro power plants, wind turbines and distributed energy resources as productively and economically as possible.

WHAT’S INCLUDED?

  • Four 50 minute live, practical sessions with your instructor and attendees 
  • The full technical eBook manual for “Practical IEC 61850 for Substation Automation for Engineers and Technicians” which includes course slides, cases studies, calculations and practical exercises
  • Four hours of additional in-depth video sessions covering many additional areas – yours to keep and watch at your convenience

PRE-REQUISITES:
A basic working knowledge of data communications in general, or some exposure to Ethernet and TCP/IP, would be useful but is not essential.
