Fundamentals & Principles of IEC 61850 + Advanced IEC 61850 Training with Hands-on Digital Substation Workshop

Montreal, QC - Canada

Hydro Quebec

We’re seeing more folks interested in practical applications of IEC 61850 and our latest training furnished participants with a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental principles, encompassing data modeling, communication, testing/troubleshooting, and networking aspects. Our Tier I and Tier II courses, spanning across 5 days, featured a blend of classroom sessions and hands-on workshops, incorporating the latest Ed.2 devices (and firmware!) from prominent industry players to give our end users a realistic platform to practice what they’ve learned. Highlights from this week included a quick astronomy lesson by means of experiencing totality during the solar eclipse (once in a lifetime moment!) and well as the presentation debut of Tesco’s virtualized Protection, Automation, and Control (vPAC) solution. We understand the hesitation and challenges that come with digitizing systems and functions so we also introduced hardware-in-the-loop testing with an RTDS simulator in our training curriculum to plant the seed on not only how to become comfortable with digitalization in design but also where digitalization could go in the future. Exciting times ahead!

National Grid Customized IEC 61850 Testing & Troubleshooting

Syracuse, NY - USA

This customized 3-day course included classroom sessions as well as hands-on workshops that provided practical experience with testing and troubleshooting an IEC 61850 system composed of the latest Ed.2 devices from ABB/Hitachi, GE, SEL, Schneider, Siemens, Microchip, Omicron, Doble, and Vizimax. This “Mobile Digital Substation” also incorporates process bus devices. Additional information about the mobile digital substation is available on our website.

The training course included the theoretical aspects, as well as the practical hands-on testing and troubleshooting exercises, which allowed participants to become comfortable putting this theory into practice using preferred IED vendor(s). This includes hands-on experience with MMS reports, MMS controls, GOOSE configurations, Sample Value configurations, and other networking-related configurations, including PRP.

SCE Customized IEC 61850 Protection Training

California - USA

Southern California Edison

The objective of this customized training course was to provide an overview of key fundamentals and principles of IEC 61850 – including the data modeling, communication, testing/troubleshooting, and networking aspects – but more so how they have been adopted by SCE. This customized course is a combination of our Tier I and Tier II courses that is spread across 5 days and includes classroom sessions as well as hands-on workshops that integrate the latest Ed.2 devices from ABB/Hitachi, GE, SEL, Schneider, Siemens, Microchip, Omicron, Doble, and Vizimax. This “Mobile Digital Substation” also incorporates process bus devices. Additional information about the mobile digital substation is available on our website

Attendees “heard” about the IEC 61850 fundamentals that are applicable to SCE, and then “saw” how these IEC 61850 parameters are set within each IED. The IEC 61850 theoretical information was shared in an intuitive manner that is easily understood, regardless of the participants’ IEC 61850 proficiencies.

ATCO Training

Calgary, AB - Canada

Atco

This customized 3-day training course included modules that were structured in a manner to gradually increase the complexity as the participants built their confidence using the IEC 61850 standard.  It covered the general IEC 61850 details, as well as specific information (e.g. project specific) that Altalink would like covered with regards to their past/upcoming pilot project(s). The training course included the theoretical aspects, as well as the practical hands-on exercises that allowed participants to become comfortable putting this theory into practice using preferred IED vendor(s).
