IEC 61850-8-1 Edition 2 approved as International Standard

The 2nd Edition of IEC 61850-8-1 has been approved with 100 per cent support by the national committees of IEC TC 57.

IEC 61850-8-1 Ed. 2.0: Communication networks and systems for power utility automation - Part 8-1: Specific communication service mapping (SCSM) - Mappings to MMS (ISO 9506-1 and ISO 9506-2) and to ISO/IEC 8802-3

The standard will be published soon.

This mapping has been implemented in many IEDs. Even in the wind power market, this mapping is the most crucial mappings … the other four mappings defined in IEC 61400-25-4 may be implemented as well.

Please note that most of the changes and corrections have been implemented by many IEDs, because many of them have been made during the edition 1 Tissue process. The first Tissue goes back to 2005.

Click HERE for the list of Tissues for part IEC 61850-8-1 Edition 1. The green Tissues are those that have been solved already – most of them are required for conformance testing. IED’s TICS (Tissue Implementation Conformance Statement) have to indicate which of the green Tissues have been implemented.
