IEC 61850 Substation Automation System testing
Testing the automation, control, and SCADA communication in IEC 61850 Substation Automation System (SAS) is as time consuming as testing the protection – or often even more. StationScout simplifies the testing and reduces the required effort significantly.
With its powerful functions, StationScout is a specialist for the whole lifecycle of a SAS – from engineering to continuous maintenance. The clear status overview provides ideal support for commissioning and maintenance engineers during the different tasks in Substation Automation Systems utilizing IEC 61850.
Status overview: StationScout provides a clear overview of the substation, visualizing the communication according to IEC 61850 in SCL files, values and states in the substation.
Signal tracing: The communication diagram of StationScout allows for signal tracing, from the overview down to the detailed communication message attributes.
Automated testing: StationScout is able to re-use predefined test plans for an automated testing procedure.
Cyber security: The dedicated hardware of StationScout ensures cyber secure operation within the substation communication network.
Simulation: The powerful simulation features of StationScout simplify testing and commissioning. Missing IEDs and IOs can also be simulated.
Defining own names: IEC 61850 abbreviations are quite cryptic. Defining of own names in StationScout allows for comfortable asset handling.
