Establishing a Vendor Independent Specification Process to
Support Top-Down Engineering
of IEC 61850 Systems

Previously held on Thursday, December 14th, 2023 at 10am EST

A consortium of leading European utilities have agreed to an Engineering Process Common Vision which offers a unified perspective on IEC 61850 engineering.

 This “Common Vision” (IEC61850 Engineering Process Common Vision ( aims to establish an industry- and standardization-supported top-down engineering solution, eliminating user- or vendor-specific approaches while introducing a fully digitalized, machine-readable specification format.

In support of this vision, Elia has led a “proof of concept” initiative, designed to spur development of the tools, and processes necessary for the common vision to become a common reality. In this pursuit, Elia enlisted the support of industry leading organizations, including Elvexys, Helinks, Siemens, and Triangle MicroWorks.

Together, we are excited to further explain the following topics:

  • Introduction to the Common Vision
  • Introduction to the IEC61850 standard enhancements related to the engineering process
  • Explanation and Demonstration of:
    • Concept Phase of the Engineering Process, i.e. defining Application Templates
    • Specification Validation through Simulation
    • Device Selection and Validation from Specification
    • Project System Configuration
    • Device Configuration
During this webinar, we will demonstrate the design of a real digital substation system using tool prototypes from Helinks(STS), Triangle MicroWorks (Distributed Test Manager) and Siemens (DIGSI 5).
