IEC 61850 – System Engineering Concept and Testing in Digital Substations
You already know the basics of IEC 61850 and want to dive deeper into the advanced topics? In this course, you get a clearer picture of the system engineering concept based on the Substation Configuration Language (SCL) and learn more about testing in Digital Substation environments. In a combination of theoretical and practical sessions, you work in a fully digital substation environment with IEDs from different vendors and redundant network architecture for station and process bus with PTP time synchronization. Understand how to efficiently test all aspects of IEC 61850 substations, from single IEDs to the entire substation communication, from testing protection functions to the substation network. Experience the OMICRON IEC 61850 testing solutions!
