On May 4th, OSMOSE organised a webinar that introduced the IEC61850 standard on communication protocols in electrical substations, and the latest related developments performed in the project.

The IEC61850 is an international standard defining rules and guidelines for substation protection and automation system communication, configuration and testing, supported by a datamodel and a configuration language. It provides an engineering process to allow efficient device configuration. OSMOSE provides and demonstrates the required extensions for engineering process extensions to support an efficient top-down end-to-end engineering process from concept and specification to configuration. The project also provides recommendations for IEC61850 WG10 in order to integrate the projects developments into a future release of the standard.
During the webinar, the interoperability needs and issues were presented, as well as the IEC61850 scope and structure, its applications fields, and complementarity with other standards. The webinar concluded on the ongoing developments within the OSMOSE project for the standard’s implementation (subject of a second webinar).
