Vendors, who develop their own 61850 network devices or management systems want to be sure about their compliance and system documentation, long before they get the external official certificate.
During system upgrades, customer integration tests or during development projects there is a steady need to verify functions are conformant to the standard. Using the test suite also helps for detailed understanding about the way the IEC-61850 standard is structured.
During substation engineering, especially when using multiple vendors, standard conformance testing can save a lot of time. The integration of DER, distributed energy resources such as wind and solar, also requires further standardization because of the diversity of DER systems.
The IEC 61850 Conformance Test Suite is compatible with:
- IEC 61850-10 Ed 2 : Conformance Testing
- UCA International Users Group Testing Sub Committee:
- Conformance Test Procedures for Server Devices with IEC 61850-8-1 Edition 2 interface
