IEC 61400 Windpower Solutions
For the management of wind power plants, The IEC developed a dedicated management standard, IEC 61400-25. This comprehensive standard describes the information model, the exchange model and the mapping to various communication protocols, used between wind turbines (they are regarded as IEC “servers”) and the SCADA management system of the network operator (they are regarded as IEC “client systems”).
The 61400-25 information model is very comparable to the 61850 models, and Xelas Energy could elegantly included the support of this standard in its development tools and testing tools. So- wherever we discuss/mention IEC 61850, the support of the IEC 61400 specifics is implicitly included.
