IEC 61850

The main target of the IEC 61850 standard is to improve the automation of the electrical substation. Avoiding proprietary protocols and being able to integrate equipment of different manufacturers “interoperability”. Using technologies that can reduce the cost in wiring and engineering time. Seeking for improvements in the commissioning and maintenance tasks.
