The IEC61850 Standard

IEC 61850, the global standard for communication in substations, is bringing open, Interoperable, systems, and flexible architectures, to the substation automation domain.

Today’s power utilities operate more globally and require flexible, future-proof systems to cope with changing requirements, philosophies, and technologies.

Achieving this requires adherence to a standard ensuring essential features such as interoperability between devices from different suppliers, free allocation of functions, capability to follow the fast changing communication technology, and ease of engineering and maintenance. Utilities' investments are safeguarded by the long term stability of the standard.

ABB has, from the beginning, taken a leading role in the elaboration of a corresponding standard in the field of substation automation; IEC 61850. ABB will continue to carry out the elaboration, implementation and verification of interoperability in line with the evolution and extension of IEC 61850.
