straton for IEC 61850

IEC 61850 is a new worldwide accepted standard that defines the communication between electrical switchgear, control equipment in substation automation and the related system requirements.

 

Straton IEC61850 tools

Copalp has developed the Straton IEC 61850 tools that simplifies the configuration under the IEC 61850 standard and includes all the parameters and tools for an intuitive use. Straton IEC 61850 includes as well the definition of the parameters (creation of ICD with the SCL editor) as the use of these parameters (the import of file of parameter setting is supported) and offer to users:

  • The great number of drivers. Connect any kind of equipment to the 61850 world using our drivers (MODBUS, CANopen, Profibus, Profinet, EtherNet/IP, DNP3, IEC 60870).
  • Integration keeping actual architecture of the existing device
  • Software or hardware solution through our partners
  • Import variables directly from the connected IEDs or other devices.
  • IEC61850 plus GOOSE integrated into a complete IEC 61131-3 PLC
  • IEC61131-3 PLC act as GOOSE publisher and react to critical events within the time limits needed in a substation application. 
  • Integrated SCL Editor

What are the avantages of IEC 61850?

Because many different communication protocols are being used in substation automation, protocol converters are commonplace.  Equipment vendors are facing significant challenges interfacing communications, leading to higher development costs for hardware vendors and increased integration and maintenance costs for network operators. 

IEC 61850 has been devised to send messages between sender and receiver in an optimal way, making communication as direct as possible to avoid losses in performance and functionality. IEC 61850 standard provides a consistent standard unifying substation automation and distributed power generation equipment, from the switchgear right up to supervisory control and monitoring functions.
