IEC 61850 Client/Server

Automatic SCADA testing in accordance with IEC 61850

IEC 61850 Client/Server (VESM1186) performs protection testing by utilizing IEC 61850 SCADA communications, in particular the reports. This verifies as well if the IED issues the correct reports to the SCADA system. The test module is a client that communicates directly with the IED (the server), largely extending the scope of testing. The module has access to the entire data model of the IED and may interrogate any data attribute during testing. The module also controls the IED’s operation mode (test, test/blocked, off, on, and on/blocked) to isolate the IED under test within a live installation.

Key Features

  • Retrieval, evaluation, and logging of IEC 61850 reports from the IED
