IEC 61850 Edition 2 and Zenon Wizards:
In 2015 zenon was certified to comply with the IEC 61850 edition 2 standards. The standard requires a client (zenon) to read data from a server that is certified to the IEC 61850 standard. Zenon was one of the first worldwide to be successfully tested and certified with the new standard of Edition 2, which was issued by TUV SUD Product Service GmbH in Germany. Additionally, to make working with the IEC standard easier for the engineer, zenon also provides 2 wizard tools to be able to create a complete energy project within an hour.
The IEC 61850 SSD Import wizard reads an SSD file and draws a single-line diagram into a zenon screen and creating the functions of the primary devices as described in the SSD file. The wizard also allocates the elements properties of the respective points, such as a transformer, circuit breaker, disconnector switch, etc. In this way engineering standard can such as colour coding properties and appearance can be built and easily adhered to and accepts them into all single-line diagrams.
The IEC 61850 Client Driver wizard reads the SCD file that contains all the necessary information regarding the device as already configured and enters this information into the zenon project. I independently create components not yet present and configures the buffered and unbuffered reports and assigns these reports correctly if the SCADA servers are designed for redundancy. The wizard also creates the required variables form the reports and datasets and prevents the variables that should not be transferred with the report from being used by mistake. Thus, the difficulty of driver configuration is reduced considerably and is no longer the main focus.
IEC 61850 Edition 2 is made easy with zenon drivers and wizards that help make quick progress during everyday engineering and relieve the engineer of inconvenient tasks.
