IEC 61850 is the current international standard used for electrical grid data communication and electrical substation modeling. It is optimized for efficient and reliable transfer of process data and commands within and between Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) and substations. IEC 61850 has been designed for use over a high-speed network.

This two-day training course focuses on the functionality and features of the IEC 61850 communication protocol. Participants will learn about the objective, scope, capabilities, benefits and restrictions of the IEC 61850 standards. Moreover, the course provides a basis for discussing IEC 61850 with suppliers, consultants and other parties and for structuring the introduction of IEC 61850 to your organization. New developments and practical experiences from IEC 61850 implementations are also covered.

This course was organized on December 7 & 8, 2012. A date for the next course hasn't been determined yet.
