IEC 61850 LAN Design and Testing
Ethernet is considered a fast, reliable, and scalable local area (LAN) technology that is becoming the predominant LAN technology within electrical substations. Through a combination of lectures and instructor demonstration lab exercises, this course presents the fundamentals of Ethernet to allow students to understand and correctly apply this LAN technology within the digital substation.
- Understand the requirements of an IEC61850 OT Ethernet LAN
- Understand the fundamentals of ethernet LAN operation
- Understand the fundamentals of the design, configuring, and testing of an ethernet LAN to verify the LAN meets the requirements of digital substation applications.
- Modern ethernet media
- Hub and switch operation
- Key features of managed switch web-based Interfaces
- The ethernet frame
- Switch learning Network redundancy (RSTP, PRP, HSR)
- MMS, GOOSE, and SV filtering using VLANs
- Data flows or “Virtual Wiring” and switch logic
- Introduction to PTP
- Introduction to testing sampled values relays with an OMICRON CMC test set
- Instructor Demonstration Lab exercises
8am - 5pm, each day
