What are the benefits of IEC 61850 Edition 2?
The experience gathered by applying the IEC 61850 standard in realized projects has been fed back to standardization committees. This feedback has been used to revise the IEC 61850 standard and Edition 2 is to be published shortly. Edition 2 will not replace the entire Edition 1 but only those parts which the feedback showed to be in need of optimization or amendment. Publication of the IEC 61850 Edition 2 standard is scheduled for mid 2012.
IEC 61850 Edition 2 improves the quality and interoperability of devices and will be applied from mid 2012 onwards. This course will familiarize staff who are already familiar with IEC 61850 Edition 1 with the new aspects included in Edition 2.
The training requires a basic knowledge about IEC 61850 Edition 1 or the Smart Grid training for beginners and comprises:
- All new contents of IEC 61850 Edition 2
- All changes of IEC 61850 Edition 2
