Efficient Energy Automation with the IEC 61850 Standard
The IEC 61850 standard has been defined in cooperation with manufacturers and users to create a uniform, future-proof basis for the protection, communication and control of substations. In this brochure, we present some application examples and implemented stations with the new IEC 61850 communication standard. IEC 61850 already has an excellent track record as the established communication standard on the worldwide market for the automation of substations.
Its chief advantages are:
Siemens is the global market leader in this area. For you, that means: You benefit from the experience of projects for more than 1000 substations and 140000 protection devices implemented in accordance with the IEC 61850 communication standard by the end of 2010. Siemens offers you IEC 61850 technology that is certified as Class A by the independent testing laboratory KEMA. Future-proof investment due to convincing migration concepts: SIPROTEC 4 protection devices manufactured since 1998 can be upgraded to make them IEC 61850-compatible without any problem. The solutions from the SICAM 1703 and SICAM PAS product lines offer you flexible configurations for seamlessly integrating the latest IEC 61850 concepts into existing substations.
