IEC 61850 compliance and verification
Head of Section Intelligent Networks & Communication
DNV GL’s independent testing and verification services help you prove the quality and interoperability of your IEC 61850 devices and implementations
Prove the quality and interoperability of your IEC 61850 devices and systems
The IEC 61850 standard enables the integration of all protection, control, measurement and monitoring functions, and supports high-speed substation protection applications. Hence IEC 61850-compliant systems are particularly attractive to TSO and DSOs looking to maximise reliability and interoperability in their networks.
Expert guidance brings market success
As part of a broad portfolio of data communication protocol services, DNV GL offers independent IEC 61850 verification and conformance testing. This helps you prove the quality and interoperability of your substation automation products including protection and control together with SCADA systems and components such as RTUs. In addition, it allows you to solve any compliance issues during development. As a result, network operators can implement your IEC 61850-based systems and devices without additional risk. To make certain that your products are tested efficiently and effectively, we work with you to prepare a customised test plan that may cover any further technical specifications you might require. Subsequently, our highly skilled engineers perform the agreed services at our state-of-the-art laboratories, or at a location of your choosing. After testing, we provide you with a complete test report. If any tests are failed, you receive additional information to shine a light on the cause of the issue(s). You can also call on our support and experience to achieve full compliance.
Work with the leading test lab
Through years of participation in international user and standardisation groups, (such as UCAIUG and IEC) we have gained a deep understanding of the standard. Real-life implementations at end-users as well as hundreds of tested devices at our leading test lab built up our practical experience. Hence, we can provide you with quality and support that is second to none, whether it’s in adopting best practices or overcoming the challenges associated with achieving verification or compliance.
