Safety information
This chapter provides information on prevention of hazards.

3.1.

Backup copies
We suggest that you take backup copies before making any changes, especially ones
that might have side effects. Software and data need to be copied to another location,
usually to a CD or a backup tape. A writable DVD and DAT tape are commonly used.
Backup copying makes it easier to restore the application software in case of disk crash
or other severe failure when stored data is lost. It is therefore recommended that backup
copies are taken regularly.
There should be at least two system backup copies and two application copies. A new
backup is copied over the oldest backup. This way the latest version is always available,
even if the backup procedure fails.
Detailed information on how to take backup copies is delivered to the customer with the
application.

System backup
Usually, a system backup is taken after the application has been configured. It should
be taken again when changes are made to the SYS 600 system. This is the case, for
example, when the driver configuration or the network setup is changed.

Application backup
An application backup is taken at the same time with the system backup after the
application has been configured. It should be taken again when changes are made to the
application. This is the case, for example, when pictures or databases are edited or new
pictures are added.

3.2.

Fault tracing
A fatal error is an error that causes a breakdown or a locked situation in the SYS 600
program execution.
In case of a fatal error:
1. Write down the possible SYS 600 error messages.

SYS 600 9.3

MicroSCADA Pro

1MRS756664

IEC 61850 System Design

2. Shut down the SYS 600 main program. If this cannot be done in SYS 600 Control
Panel, try to end the task in Windows Task Manager.
Shutting down the base system computers by switching off
the power might damage the files.

3. In Windows, the data kept in the main memory at the moment of a fatal error is
placed in the drwtsn32.log file in a system folder, for example WINNT. Analyze and
copy the data in this file.
4. Restart the system.
5. Report the program breakdown together with possible the SYS 600 error messages
and the information from the drwtsn32.log file to the SYS 600 supplier.
Error messages in SCIL are called status codes. A list of status codes and short explanations can be found in SYS 600 Status Codes.

Requirements
The installation and configuration of the devices that use the IEC 61850-8-1 protocol
consist of:

4.1.

Hardware installation
Software installation

Hardware requirements
The hardware components listed below are usually required in IEC 61850 systems. In
addition to the hardware itself, this equipment may require the configuration of the
appropriate driver in the appropriate operating system.

Time synchronization device with SNTP Server (for example Meinberg LANTIME/GPS)
RuggedCom RS1600/8000 or RSG 2100, for example. For more information, see
http://www.ruggedcom.com.
OnTime FST208 Industrial Switch
Allied Telesyn AT-8016F/MT
Intel PRO/1000 MT Dual Port. For more information, see http://www.intel.com.
Printer Server
Media converter

Printer Server usually provides diagnostics information in Ethernet via the SNMP protocol. The proposed way to include this information into SYS 600 is to convert it into
OPC item updates using a third-party SNMP to the OPC Server component. The OPC
item updates are then mapped to the SYS 600 process database via OPC DA Client.

4.2.

Software requirements
The following software is required:

MicroSCADA Pro SYS 600 9.3

The following software is optional:

IED configuration tools (for example Communication Engineering Tool for SPAZC 40x version 2.0 or later)
PCM600
Connectivity Packages for IEDs (for example REF 541/543/545 Connectivity
Package version 2.0 or later)

Components of the IEC 61850-based system


The related components of the IEC 61850-based system (see Figure5.1-1) are described
in the following sections:

5.1.1,SYS 600 base system


5.1.2,OPC Data Access Client
5.1.3,IEC 61850 OPC Server
5.1.4,Related engineering tools

Figure5.1-1Related components of the IEC 61850-based system

5.1.1.

SYS 600 base system


Process displays and lists, providing the operator with information on the SYS 600 base
system, are found in process and report databases within the system. In the SYS 600
system, each signal update from an IED is represented with a unique addressing based
on station (Unit Number) and object addressing (Block and Bit number).
OPC DA Client interacts with the base system through a node connected to the TCP/IP
link. Thus the underlying IEDs using the IEC 61850-8-1 protocol are represented as
communication stations in the system.

12

1MRS756664

MicroSCADA Pro

SYS 600 9.3

IEC 61850 System Design

Consequently, the related base system objects, that is link, node and station(s), must be
introduced through system configuration:

LAN link (LINn:B)


Node (NODn:B)
Station(s) (STAn:B)

These definitions are usually included in the system configuration and found in the file
\sc\sys\active\sys_\sys_bascon.com.

5.1.2.

OPC Data Access Client


OPC DA Client is configured by using OPC DA Client Configuration Tool. In this tool,
configuration related to IEC 61850 OPC Server, SYS 600 base system objects and
application engineering is defined.
IEC 61850 OPC Server

IEC 61850 OPC Server CLSID and its location (Local or Remote Server) are assigned
in Server Properties.

SYS 600 base system objects

Configuration related to OPC DA Client Node and Primary/Secondary SYS 600


base system objects are assigned in CPI Node Properties.

Signal engineering

5.1.3.

OPC items exposed by IEC 61850 OPC Server are mapped to SYS 600 process
objects.
Each OPC item is defined to belong to a specific OPC group and communication
station representative. Position indications (binary signals) usually belong to an
OPC group with an update rate of 0 ms, which is supported by IEC 61850 OPC
Server. In this case, all signal changes are immediately sent to OPC DA Client.
Measurements (analog signals) usually belong to an OPC group with an update rate
of 1000 ms. In this case, signal changes shorter than 1000 ms are not sent to OPC
DA Client.

IEC 61850 OPC Server


IEC 61850 OPC Server is configured by using CET for IEC 61850 OPC Server and
interacts in real time with IEC 61850 process devices and OPC DA Client.

5.1.4.

Related engineering tools


When creating process objects into the application, IEC 61850 engineering involves
using tools like SCLImporter and OPC PO List. During single-line diagram engineering,
Display Builder (Monitor Pro) or Picture Editor (Classic Monitor) can be used. Further,
additional IED configuration tools such as CAP 505 may be required.

5.1.5.

IEC 61850 System Supervision Server


IEC 61850 SSS is a stand-alone executable OPC Client IEC 61850 server
(opcc_iec61850.exe) with a built-in OPC server for DCOM start-up and diagnostics.
IEC 61850 SSS enables mapping of SYS 600 OPC Server items to IEC 61850 process
objects and is configurable with SCL. To be able to generate events through IEC 61850,
the SSS must receive the data changes from the OPC server with OPC item updates, as
IEC 61850 does no explicit reading. IEC 61850 SSS requires an IEC 61850 license (SYS
or COM). OPC Server-related components are presented in Figure5.1.5-1.

A060813

Figure5.1.5-1OPC Server-related components

IEC 61850 SSS features


IEC 61850 SSS maps the following OPC items to IEC 61850 7-3 CDC attributes:

14

Event update (UPDATE)


Creates an OPC group for mapped items with a group update rate of 0 ms.
Sends events received as OPC item updates to IEC 61850 clients with reporting
service.
Value overrides (GOOD and BAD). The value GOOD overrides all updated
values, whereas BAD is used in case of errors (disconnect).
Event update timer (TIMER)

1MRS756664

MicroSCADA Pro

SYS 600 9.3

IEC 61850 System Design

Expects an update of a specified OPC item from OPC Server within timeout
milliseconds.
Creates an OPC group for mapped items with a group update rate of timeout
milliseconds.
Sends events received as OPC item updates to IEC 61850 clients with reporting
service.
If the OPC item update interval exceeds the timeout, the quality (the value of
the q-attribute) of the CDC is set to BAD.
Value overrides (GOOD and BAD). The value GOOD overrides all updated
values, whereas BAD is used in case of errors (disconnect and timeout).
On OPC Server disconnect, all the mapped CDC qualities are set to BAD.

The following values remain constant:

Configured values for CDC attributes.

IEC 61850 SSS start-up


When IEC 61850 SSS starts up, it will automatically perform the following tasks:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

5.1.6.

Reads the configuration (SCL, Systemc.xml).


Builds an IEC 61850 namespace according to SCL.
Connects to SYS 600 OPC Server (configured in SCL Communication ProgID).
Connects to OPC Items on SYS 600 OPC Server (configured in SCL CDC sAddrs).
Starts the IEC 61850 server for IEC 61850 clients.

IED connectivity
The concept of Connectivity Packages has been introduced together with MicroSCADA
Pro SYS 600 and will gradually replace the role of the LIB packages in IED engineering.
Unlike the LIB packages, the connectivity packages do not include IED tools. Instead,
PCM600 can be integrated and used together with SYS 600. However, the IED tools
included in the LIB packages can also be used together with SYS 600 and Monitor Pro
process displays. For further information on integrating IED tools, see SYS 600
Application Design and SYS 600 Process Display Design.
The same requirements apply to the connectivity packages in SYS 600 as to the LIB
packages. Consequently, IED connectivity in SYS 600 appears in the form of engineering
definitions related to process database and graphical user interface.
In the graphical user interface, the common user interface components of SA-LIB (for
example control dialogs) are used to interact with the process database. During singleline diagram engineering, the application-related set of process display symbols has been
selected to be used in process displays.

15

SYS 600 9.3

MicroSCADA Pro

1MRS756664

IEC 61850 System Design

The process database definitions contain instantiated SA-LIB standard functions and
have been created by the following means:

5.1.6.1.

Connectivity Packages
Load files provided by Integrated Engineering Toolbox
Object Navigator approach
List-Based Engineering Tool
SCL Importer

Connectivity Packages
The concept of Connectivity Packages for IEDs provides harmonized engineering and
minimizes the dependencies between different releases of IEDs, system products and
tools. IED configuration management of parameters, measurements and functions can
be realized by importing IED descriptions. This information is included together with
the IED when integrating the IED into system products and tools; see Figure5.1.6.1-1.

A060648

Figure5.1.6.1-1IED connectivity

Achieving full IED connectivity in SYS 600 requires that the application's process
database contains the following process object models:

16

control and supervision


protection functions

1MRS756664

MicroSCADA Pro

SYS 600 9.3

IEC 61850 System Design

The process database model of control and supervision consists of position indications,
commands and measurements, whereas the process database model of protection functions
consists of protection events. Connectivity Packages are used to construct this information
in a reliable way into the process database and to achieve effective engineering without
additional manual work.
Each Connectivity Package includes all the information and functionality required for
efficient integration of the IED into system level products and tools. The Connectivity
Package description of an IED is according to IEC 61850 and contains:

data signal description


parameter description
protocol addresses
documentation
IED interface modules, for example for disturbance file handling

The amount of IED information may differ depending on the service level of the connectivity package. The supported protocols (this manual focuses on the IEC 61850 protocol) and service level of a specific connectivity package is defined separately for each
IED.
Consequently, in SYS 600, the process database of the IEC 61850 system is created
using SA-LIB standard functions with default event and alarm handling. This is the case
when SCL Importer is used for importing the SCL information either from CID or SCD
files into the application. The created process database is connected to the SA-LIB process
symbols during display engineering and interacts with the Control dialogs of SYS 600
at run-time. For more information on SCL Importer, see 5.8,Creating process objects
and SYS 600 Application Design.
To understand the process object model of SA-LIB through the IEC 61850 modeling,
see 10,Conformance statements for the logical nodes supported by SA-LIB.

5.2.

Configuration environment
In IEC 61850-based systems, the following components need to be configured:

IED (SPA-ZC 40_ if used)


IEC 61850OPC Server
OPC Data Access Client
SYS 600 process database and HMI

Figure5.1-1 illustrates the software components, including their interrelationships and


underlying communication architecture. The SYS 600 base system, OPC DA Client and
IEC 61850 OPC Server are usually all located on the same computer.

5.3.

Configuring the SYS 600 base system


The SYS 600 base system is configured with the System Configuration Tool. This means
that the base system definitions related to the LAN link, the OPC DA Client node and
the communication station(s) are configured with the System Configuration Tool. It is
also possible to include the configuration of the SYS 600 base system in the sys_bascon.com file manually, but configuration using the System Configuration Tool is
recommended.
To configure the SYS 600 base system with the System Configuration Tool:
1. Open System Configuration Tool from Tool Manager.
2. Select the MicroSCADA Configuration object. Insert New LAN Link Object
Number 1, and click OK to add LIN1.
3. Select the LIN1 object. Insert New IEC 61850 Node Object Number 8, and click
OK to add NOD8.
4. Select the NOD8 object. Insert New SPA Station Object Number 60, and click OK
to add STA60. The configuration in tool is shown in Figure5.3-1.

1MRS756664

MicroSCADA Pro

SYS 600 9.3

IEC 61850 System Design

Traditionally, the configuration related to the SYS 600 base system is defined in the
sys_bascon.com file. In IEC 61850-based systems, this means that the base system
definitions related to the LAN link, the External OPC DA Client node and the communication station(s) are configured for both SYS 600 redundancy systems. The following
steps guide you through the base system configuration using the included configuration
tools.
To configure the system using System Configuration Wizard:
1. Open SYS 600 Control Panel.
2. In the SYS 600 Control Panel dialog, click Admin and then Wizard.
3. The System Configuration dialog appears. Follow the wizard and make the necessary
configurations.

4.

For a single system use e.g. the following configuration:


Select Base System Type Single System and Monitor Pro and OPC Data
Access Server enabled for OPC Data Access Server.
Use Node Name SYS_1, Node Number 9 and Station Address 209 for Base

Creating a LAN link


The SYS 600 base system is configured with the System Configuration Tool. This means
that the base system definitions related to the LAN link, the OPC DA Client node and
the communication station(s) are configured with the System Configuration Tool. It is
also possible to include the configuration of the SYS 600 base system in the sys_bascon.com file manually, but configuration using the System Configuration Tool is
recommended.
To create the LAN link, the External OPC DA Client node and the communication station(s) using System Configuration Tool (LAN link LIN1, External OPC DA Client node
NOD8 and station STA60 are created here as an example):
1. Start SYS 600 Monitor.
2. Start System Configuration Tool (System Conf) from System Configuration tab
in Tool Manager.

IEC 61850 Redundancy


Redundancy in the nodes (Station and IED) is achieved by attaching two different,
redundant networks by two ports to each node. Each node selects independently the
network to use. The nodes are the only non-redundant parts. IEC 62439-3 specifies the
PRP (Parallel Redundancy Protocol), a "redundancy in the nodes" solution, in which
nodes use both networks simultaneously. PRP is based on full duplication and parallel
operation of two redundant networks. PRP nodes send signals to and receive signals
from both networks at the same time, providing bumpless recovery. This offers zero
recovery time, making PRP suited for all real time applications.
Redundancy in the network (LAN) is achieved using RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol). The RSTP standard provides at best a 2 second recovery time.

IEC 61850 System Design

DuoDriver (v2.2 or later) with PRP and compatible network interface cards (NIC) are
used for IEC 61850 communication redundancy. Using DuoDriver and PRP with SYS
600 requires that the connected IEDs also support DuoDriver for communication
redundancy.

Installing DuoDriver
To install and configure DuoDriver:
1. Install and configure the NICs used for redundant IEC 61850 communication before
installing the DuoDriver. The NICs to-be-paired must be named appropriately.
2. Set the static IP address.
For Windows XP SP2 (and earlier), set a static IP address for NIC A manually,
and disable TCP/IP protocol for NIC B.
For Windows Vista, Server 2008 and XP SP3, configure a static IP address for
both NICs (IP of NIC B not used). Disable IPv6. The IP address of NIC A is
used for both paired NICs.
The configuration of DuoDriver requires that all redundant NICs are plugged into an active switch/router during
the installation.
3.

4.

5.5.

Install DuoDriver by executing the DuoDriver install package included in SYS 600
installation (e.g. C:\sc\Setup\DuoDriver\setup.exe).
DuoDriver is configured during the installation. To change the configuration, the
driver must be reinstalled. The DuoDriver setup names the paired instance of
DuoDriver, pairs the NICs, and clones the MAC address of the paired NICs. The
configured instance name and NIC name are used in the IEC 61850 OPC Server
namespace to identify the DuoDriver diagnostics.
After installation disable DuoDriver for other Ethernet interfaces.

Building the physical IEC 61850 network


The devices in the IEC 61850 network should first become connected in system
according to the wiring diagrams and layout pictures. Setting up the devices may require
that their addresses and the protocols in question are configured according to the system
requirements.

CET for SPA-ZC 40x converts the project files to an IEC 61850 data object model using
connectivity packages. However, the connectivity packages do not necessarily support
all the functions of an IED. Functions not mapped to the IEC 61850 structure are reported
after import.
CET for SPA-ZC 40x imports default data sets and RCBs to the logical device LD0; see
Figure5.6.3-1. A data set includes data attributes selected from an IED's IEC 61850 data
model. The data sets are used in the IEC 61850 event reporting model. If the same data
attributes that have been selected to be included in a data set are used in an RCB, the
data set generates a spontaneous event which is sent to the IEC 61850 client. If the data
set is not used in an RCB, the IEC 61850 client reads the data separately.
After adding a new IED, give it a unique name in the network.
Spaces are not allowed in the IED's name. Renaming can be
done in Project Explorer; see Figure5.6.3-1.

Downloading the configuration and exporting the CID file


After you have built the IEC 61850 data object model and configured the communication
addressing, you can download the configuration to SPA-ZC40_, see Figure5.6.4-1.
1.
2.

Right-click the IEC 61850 device object and select CID Export.
If you download configuration to SPA-ZC40_ for the first time, replace the default
IP address 192.168.2.10 with a new address according to the planned network
structure.

When the new configuration is being downloaded to SPA-ZC40_, CET checks if the
basic IP addresses are changed. If a change is detected, CET asks whether you want to
take the new addresses into use. If you do not accept the changes, SPA-ZC40_ uses the
old IP addresses from the previous configuration.

If the connection to the system, to which SPA-ZC40_ is connected, is enabled, the


Export function tries to determine the SPA-ZC40_ version and exports the export file
accordingly. If a connection to the system cannot be established, prompt the correct
version to be exported; see Figure5.6.4-2.

With CID Export, you can export a configuration in CID format to the hard drive. Further,
it is possible to export a data set in SCL files at different levels. For example, if you
select to export a data set at the FCD level, an information report from SPA-ZC 40_
always contains value, quality and time in one structure. You can also export the CID
or ICD file to your workstation's file system and use it in system level tools, for example
to configure your IEC 61850 client.

Configuring report control blocks


RCBs control the spontaneous event reporting. The client can modify the event reporting
by setting RCB attributes. Both buffered and unbuffered RCBs are supported. The RCB
attributes' default values are suitable for the following ABB products:

RCBs are located under the logical device LD0 and logical node LLN0; see Figure5.6.61. For information on RCB dedication, see SYS 600 IEC 61850 Master Protocol (OPC).

A060032

Figure5.6.6-1Reporting model

RCBs have the following properties:

Buffered reporting
IEC 61850 buffers events also during a communication break.
Buffer Time
The default value is 100 ms. Consequently, the RCB waits 100 ms for other events
after the first change before sending the report.
Integrity Period
The default value is 0 ms. If the integrity period is > 0 ms, SPA-ZC 40_ sends a
report with all data listed in the linked data set within this period. This feature is not
enabled by default, because it causes excessive load to the server and the network.
Report ID
SPA-ZC 40_ uses the Report ID as the MMS address of the RCB. Report ID is
empty by default. At the default value, a default RCB MMS path name is used.
Option Fields
Defines what information is sent in the report.
SPA-ZC 40_ adds information on buffer overflow, report entry ID and sequence
number, and allows segmentation by default. Other fields are RCB configuration
version, data reference in the MMS address format, name of the used data set and
report sending time.
Max
Defines how many clients use the RCB, that is the number of required RCB instances.
If two clients for buffered reporting are defined, Max has to be set to 2. SPA-ZC
40_ creates two instances of the RCB name, for example rcbStatNrml01 and rcbStatNrml02. For unbuffered reporting, Max has to be the same or higher as the number
of defined clients in accordance with the IEC 61850 standard.
Trigger Options
Data Change, Data Update and Quality Change triggers are used by default. Consequently, changes in value and quality generate information reports. A period
trigger is not used by default.
To edit the properties, right-click the dataset and select Properties.

Figure5.6.6-2Report control block

Buffered reporting requires that clients are defined. Report Client definitions link a certain
RCB to a certain client. The client can import the CID file to check which RCB instance
it has to use. If Max is set to 2, the configuration must have two clients with buffered
reporting. The first client on the list uses the first RCB instance (rcb name ...01) and the
second client the second instance (rcb name ...02 ).
Unbuffered reporting does not require that clients are defined, but it is recommended
for clarity. Client IED Name has to match with the client name in SCL.
Every modification in an RCB increases the RCB configuration revision by one. Each
revision generates a CID file, enabling the IEC 61850 client to compare the received
revision to the file configuration revision.

The following communication options are available:


Filter DOs that dont belong to DataSet: This option limits the amount of data
objects being imported. If a data object does not belong to any data set, it is not
imported. Some IEDs can provide huge amounts of data that is not reported, that is,
not updated in COM600 HMI. Performance can be enhanced by checking this option.

on objects affected by the import operation. Select this option only if you know that
the importable file contains better descriptions than your current configuration.
Do not import substation information: This option does not update the substation
structure. It can be used if you only must update the communication configuration.
Import substation information from a separate template: This option allows you
to select a template that provides the substation configuration. It is useful, if there
are several identical configurations and you have created a good template for the
substation information.
Import protocol configuration (sAddr): Imports the protocol-specific information.
If this option is selected, both the object tree and protocol configuration are done.
If this is not selected, only the object tree structure is created.
Do not import DO's without protocol configuration (sAddr): If this option is
selected, none of the data objects without protocol configuration information are
created to the object tree.
It is important to dedicate specific instances of the IED Report

61850 clients cannot enable reporting from a single RCB


instance and will cause communication failures.

To allow multiple IEC 61850 clients to receive the same data values from the IED,
multiple instances of the report control classes must be made available. Specify the RCB
instances using Report Enabled and Report Client and dedicate them to clients using
Report Client.
To enable IEC 61850 OPC Server to use the server-specific RCB instances and thus
receive spontaneous events, the Report Control Identity object property of the OPC
Server must match one of the Report Client fields in the device's RCB configurations.
All configured RCBs without a Report Enabled field are used with as is RCB naming.
The RCBs without instances specified for the IEC 61850 OPC Server are discarded. For

Timeout handling
When parameter setting or disturbance upload operations are performed by using relay
tools such as CAP, SMS or LIB, their default timeout of 5 seconds is used. In CET for
IEC 61850 OPC Server, the default SPA TCP timeout is 3 seconds.
To enable fluent interaction in case of possible communication failures during relay toolspecific operations, it is recommended not to change the default SPA TCP timeout. The
configuration parameters should be defined according to the following principle: SPA
TCP Timeout (3 seconds) < Read/Write timeout of OPC DA Client (4 seconds) < default
timeout of relay tools (5 seconds).

5.8.

Creating process objects


In the IEC 61850-based system, SCL Importer usually creates the application objects
into the SYS 600 process database from the files following the SCL model. The prerequisite is that the SCL files contain the Substation section, whose content is further applied
to the Object Identification attribute values, which in turn are assigned to the process
objects.
Before importing the SCL file, ensure that the Subnetwork
field contains exactly the same subnetwork name as the configured IED in the IEC 61850 OPC Server in CET (e.g. text
IEC61850 Subnetwork). The subnetwork name appears
later in the External OPC DA Client configuration. Also fill
in the Substation, Voltage Level and Bay fields.

If the substation is given another name than TEMPLATE in


the SCL file, SCL Importer assumes that Substation, Voltage
Level, Bay and Subnetwork objects are already defined in the
file. In this case, these fields are disabled. If Substation,
Voltage Level, Bay and Subnetwork need to be redefined
before importing, select the file type Configured IED
Description Files (.cid) in the file selection dialog.

The object text for protection process objects can be, for example, translated into a
selected language by describing it in the SCL file with a key, such as
PTOC_NOC3LOW_OP. The translated object text is available after importing a language
file that includes the values for the used keys, for example PTOC_NOC3LOW_OP="3I>
trip". If the translated text is used in the SCL file, the related default language file
(English) is delivered with the connectivity package.

Configuring OPC Data Access Client


The following phase of the configuration is skipped when
using the automatic External OPC DA Client configuration
option in SCL Importer.

OPC DA Client is used for receiving communication from IEC 61850 OPC Server. The
relationship to IEC 61850 OPC Server is defined when configuring OPC DA Client.
Each OPC DA Client configuration file usually contains the connection to one IEC 61850
OPC server. However, the related configuration to be included into each OPC DA Client
may also be a subset of the overall OPC Namespace found in IEC 61850 OPC Server.
Consequently, OPC DA Client may subscribe to only part of the IEC 61850 OPC Server
signals representing only part of the system, for example OPC items related to only
medium- or high-voltage process devices. One IEC 61850 OPC Server can thus serve
several OPC DA Client instances at runtime.

One or multiple OPC groups are defined for each communication station representing
an IEC 61850 process device. For OPC groups containing items related to position
indication and control commands, the update rate should be 0 ms. For OPC groups containing measurement values, however, an update rate of for example 1000 ms is accepted.
The update rate setting specifies the interval time for OPC DA Client's polling of OPC
items from IEC 61850 OPC Server. An update rate of 0 ms means that no events are lost
and the functionality is supported by IEC 61850 OPC Server.

5.9.4.

Defining configuration for the IEC 61850 system


The Disable Device Refresh flag disables device refreshing within the External OPC
DA Client so that the OPC Server is always trusted to have the latest data from the IED.
When the flag is disabled a device refresh issued by the External OPC DA Client can
cause duplicate events. The Disable Device Refresh flag should always be enabled in
IEC 61850 systems.
To define the configuration for the IEC 61850 System in External OPC DA Client

IEC 61850 Hot Stand-by system topology


The configuration of the IEC 61850 communication system in the SYS 600 HSB environment is presented in Figure5.10.1-1. In HSB systems that include IEC 61850 process
devices, the OPC DA Client and the IEC 61850 OPC Server are usually both located on
the same computer with the SYS 600 base system.

A060454

Figure5.10.1-1Topology of a typical HSB system with IEC 61850 process communication

IEC 61850 process devices of a physical network are configured to have two masters,
one in Computer A and another in Computer B. When a fault occurs in the primary base
system (computer A), including the HOT application, the shadowing application in the
stand-by base system (computer B) starts and takes over all the operational functions.
In HSB systems, there is usually a need to minimize the switch-over time.
In Figure5.10.1-1, the IEC 61850 OPC Servers and External OPC DA Clients are active
both in the primary (including HOT application) and the stand-by (including the shadowing application) computer. This way the latest data from IEC 61850 process devices is
always available on the IEC 61850 OPC Servers. The changes are stored into the buffers
of both External OPC DA Clients to prevent event loss during switchover. When the
main application is COLD the shadowing state of the application is HOT_RC, the buffering of the data updates is made in SYS 600.
The External OPC DA Client should be located on the same computer as where the base
system is running. The External OPC DA Client should be configured according to the
application initialization procedures (APL_INIT_*), as defined in 5.10.2,Starting OPC
Data Access Client instance.

5.10.2.

Starting OPC Data Access Client instance


In Hot Stand-by systems the External OPC DA Client should be started from the
watchdog (WD) application. In a standalone system it should be started from the main
application. This startup logic is included into the command procedure APL_INIT_1

Single-line diagram engineering


Single-line diagram engineering is required to connect the process objects to process
displays. This is done either by using Display Builder or Picture Editor, depending on
whether Classic Monitor or Monitor Pro graphics are used in the system.
The overall documentation for Display Builder in Monitor Pro is included in SYS 600

For process symbols representing IEC 61850 process
devices, the polarity of the position indication is different
compared to devices communicating via other protocols,
such as LON and SPA. Consequently, value swapping is
required for IEC 61850-related process symbols during

Configuring IEC 61850 System Supervision Server


There are two types of configurable mapped basic object types available: Timer and
Update.

Timer
If configured as Timer, the values are received from the OPC Server, and the quality
and timestamp are set according to the quality and timestamp of the received OPC item.
If the timer expires or the OPC Server disconnects, the CDC value is set to 0 and the
quality to BAD. The values can be overridden by good (Good Value) or bad (Bad Values)
values. Good values are always used when updates are received from the OPC Server.
Bad values are used if the timer expires or the OPC Server disconnects.
A Timer object creates an OPC group for mapped items with group update rate = Update
Rate. It expects an update of the specified item within Time Out msec. If an update is
not received, the quality is set to BAD (and the value is updated with Bad Value, if
configured). If an update is received, the value is updated (overridden by Good Value
if configured).

Update
If configured as Update, the values are received from the OPC Server, and the quality
and timestamp are set according to the quality and timestamp of the received OPC item.
The indication value can be overridden by configuring a Good Value. This value is used
for all updated values, that is, every updated value from OPC Server is overridden. If
the OPC Server is disconnected, the CDC quality is set to BAD (if Bad Value is configured, the value is overridden).
The following example shows how to configure status information of the local DuoDriver
to be reported by the IEC 61850 System Supervision Server. By default the SSS is configured to connect to the MicroSCADA OPC Server (ABB.MicroSCADA.OPC.Server.DA).

Configuring IEC 61850 Redundancy diagnostics

5.13.1.

Local machine DuoDriver status diagnostics


DuoDriver offers a driver level diagnostics interface, which can be accessed from the
IEC 61850 OPC Server. The IEC 61850 OPC Server uses API to obtain the diagnostics
and offers data through its OPC interface. The DuoDriver interface status information
(boolean) is available through the OPC path Attributes\DuoDriver\Node name\NIC
name\Working.
The IEC 61850 OPC Server does not require configuration. On startup it checks if
DuoDriver is installed and creates the OPC items for DuoDriver diagnostics for all
instances of the DuoDriver. The DuoDriver diagnostics are available in all instances of
the IEC 61850 OPC Server.
The status diagnostics are mapped to MicroSCADA process objects with the External
OPC DA Client. Additional diagnostics for network debugging are made available in
the DuoDriver Management and Configuration GUI.
A specific STA object should be created for DuoDriver local diagnostics. When the
importing option Create Process Objects for DuoDriver Server status is enabled
during an IED import, MicroSCADA SCL Import Tool configures the External OPC
DA Client and adds MicroSCADA process objects for the local machine DuoDriver
status diagnostics automatically (see Figure5.8.1-1). The import tool checks from
operating system registry if DuoDriver is installed, resolves DuoDriver instance names

Redundancy Supervision Status (RSS) CDC with boolean attributes stValA and stValB
is used for SrcSt. The information is accessible to every IEC 61850 client connected to
the IED and is mapped to MicroSCADA process objects through the IEC 61850 OPC
Server and External OPC DA Client.
The IEC 61850 OPC Server is configured with CET and the DuoDriver status diagnostics
are available through the OPC, if the SrcSt data object is found in the IED configuration.

server (e.g. MicroSCADA OPC Server). The Reset function can be used to shutdown
SSS.

IEC 61850 System Supervision Server generates either the log file EventLog.txt, in
case of OPC DA Client-related errors, or the log file mms.log, in case of SCL configuration or IEC 61850-related errors.

In case of major errors, IEC 61850 System Supervision Server generates printouts
to command prompt.

Distributed system topologies


The proposed system topology for the .png system is presented in Figure5.10.1-1,
including the SYS 600 HSB pair with dedicated OPC DA Client and .png OPC Server
components. Technically, it is also possible for either OPC DA Client, .png OPC Server
or both to be located on different computers in the same office network.
Figure7-1describes the system topology where OPC DA Client and .png OPC Server
are located on the same computer and the SYS 600 base systems on separate computers
on the LAN network. The communication between the SYS 600 base system and OPC
DA Client is based on the proprietary ACP protocol over TCP/IP.

A060523

In this topology, there are more computer-to-computer connections. DCOM-based


communication occurs over the network between separate OPC DA Client and .png OPC

data becoming a problem if the used LAN network is not well designed and reliable.
However, in a reliable LAN network, the DCOM is as good as any other protocol.

have been correctly set. Check the timeout
settings as described in 5.7.5, Timeout handling.
When the SNMP OPC Server is connected to
MicroSCADA Pro, the related process objects
appear as not sampled, i.e. process object
statuses and values are not reflecting the
appropriate OPC items from the SNMP OPC
Server.

Ensure that the System Messages Enabled (SE)


attribute is defined as disabled (value 1) in the
configuration. This attribute is defined in the CPI
Node Properties dialog of the Configuration
Tool.

When the IEC 61850 OPC Server is connected


to MicroSCADA Pro, all the process objects
appear as not sampled, i.e. process object
statuses and values are not reflecting the OPC
items from the IEC 61850 OPC Server.

If System Messages Enabled (SE) is defined


as enabled (value 4) in the configuration of the
External OPC DA client, ensure that the Device
connection status items are added to the same
configuration. For more information, see the
External OPC Data Access Client manual.
If the Device connection status items are correctly configured, or the System Messages
Enabled (SE) is defined as disabled (value 1)
and process objects are still not updated, check
that the node and the application values in the

Description

IP Address

An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a unique identifier for a


node or host connection on an IP network. An IP address is
represented as 4 decimal values separated by decimal points.
This is known as "dotted decimal" notation. Example:
140.179.220.200 The IP address and the subnet mask
determine which part belongs to the network address and which
part belongs to the node address.

Logical Device

Representation of a group of functions. Each function is defined


as a logical node. A physical device has one or several LDs.
