What does Self-Description in IEC 61850 and IEC 61400-25 mean?

The other day I was asked to explain the self-description to a larger group of SCADA and Asset management experts. The requirement was, to do it in some 3 minutes. I have many ways to explain it: slides, live presentation, or just a white-board.

I decided to produce a short video clip – because I have the right equipment on my desk and convenient tools to produce a video.

Hi Karlheinz, Your video illustrates very nicely how non-IEC 61850 components can be given a sugary IEC 61850 coating to make them delicious for integrating into IEC 61850 systems. I am looking forward to another instalment which illustrates (at least for this PLC) how to map non-IEC 61850 components to logical nodes. Pesumably this process can also generate a compatible ICD file. It's a great way to use existing, trusted products to build Smart Grid capability. Cheers, Neil
