FOREWORD

1) The IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of the IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, the IEC publishes International Standards. Their preparation is

entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with may

participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising

with the IEC also participate in this preparation. The IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization

for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two

organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of the IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an

international consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation

from all interested National Committees.

3) The documents produced have the form of recommendations for international use and are published in the form

of standards, technical specifications, technical reports or guides and they are accepted by the National

Committees in that sense.

4) In order to promote international unification, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC International

Standards transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional standards. Any

divergence between the IEC Standard and the corresponding national or regional standard shall be clearly

indicated in the latter.

5) The IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with one of its standards.

6) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this International Standard may be the subject

of patent rights. The IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 61334-4-512 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 57:

Power system control and associated communications.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
57/544/FDIS 57/562/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged

until 2004. At this date, the publication will be
• reconfirmed;
• withdrawn;
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.

5 Management Information Base (MIB)

This standard provides a selection of DLMS objects gathered together in a so-called

Management Information Base (MIB). This selection corresponds to a set of variables that are

used for the management of the PLAN (Power Line Automation Network) profile. This profile is

based on IEC 61334-5-1 (physical layer and MAC sublayer), IEC 61334-4-32 (LLC sublayer),

IEC 61334-4-42 (Application protocols), IEC 61334-4-511 (CIASE protocol) and IEC 61334-4-41

(DLMS) standards.

From a DLMS point of view, an MIB is associated with a specific VDE called the "Management

VDE".
Characteristics of the Management VDE:

The Management VDE is accessible from the LLC sublayer through an SAP equal to 0.

The conformance block characteristics of this VDE are described in IEC 61334-4-511.

The VDE type is 0.

The resources attribute of the VDE is associated with the Visible String: PLAN MIB 1.0.

The DLMS view of the MIB leads to consider mainly management Named Variable Objects.

The types of the objects that are involved in the systems interoperability are defined in a DLMS

objects description way.

The Named Variable Objects are sorted according to the communication layer to which they

are mainly bound. The present clause describes the objects parameters, the specific type of

the named variable described and any remarks on their use.

A DLMS name space from 0 to 4095 (in decimal notation) is reserved for extensions of

standardized Management Objects. Specific manufacturer objects can be added to the

Management VDE provided that their names are greater than 4096 (in decimal notation).

The present MIB is designed to facilitate implementation in very simple devices. It is also

anticipated that DLMS will exchange information based on other standardized MIB definitions.

For example, SNMP RMON (Internet RFC 1757: “Remote Network Monitoring Management

Information Base”, February 1995) is a widely applied set of definitions supported in many

network protocols for remote management. Since the name space of DLMS is constrained,

mapping to this large data structure would consume too much of the limited name space. It can

therefore be accomplished through the definition of a single Named Variable Object of type

STRUCTURE, and, Detailed Access would be used to navigate the structure to its individual

components. The name 4088 (in decimal notation) is reserved for the future definition of

SNMPs RMON MIB. The Named Variable Objects from 4032 to 4080 are similarly reserved for

definition of other MIBs including CMIS/CMIP based MIBs.

5.1 General types definition
5.1.1 Structure

The DCP Systems Management uses the same types as DLMS (see IEC 61334-4-41, 10.2 for

further details). However, there is a need for a special type “list”. The DCP System

Management uses the existing type “array” where the type “list” is needed. The type “array” for

that purpose has a special characteristic; i.e. it has a maximum size and a variable number of

elements.
Table 1 – Type Description argument
Type Description Code
Kind of Type M
Array[-list] S
[Maximum] number of Elements M
Type Description M
Structure S
List of Type Description M
Simple S
Class M

A type is described by a recursively specified argument. This argument describes a branching

tree, called a type tree. The leaves of this tree are the simple data elements of the variable

described by the type. If a type describes a complex variable, then the type tree will have one

or more non-leaf nodes, each of which represents a complex type constructed from the

possible complex types represented by the subordinate nodes of the type tree.
5.1.2 Arguments

The Kind of Type argument, of type CHOICE, indicates the selection which has been chosen to

describe this node of the type tree. The possible values for this argument are: ARRAY,

STRUCTURE or SIMPLE. Only the array type is described here, as it can be different from that

of the one in DLMS.

The Array argument is selected when the selection for the Type Description argument is

ARRAY. It indicates that the node being described is a complex type that is constructed from

an ordered sequence of elements, all of a single type. The first element is numbered zero.

– The [maximum] number of elements argument, of type Unsigned8, specifies the [maximum]

number of elements in the array[-list]: if the array has a variable length (list), it indicates the

maximum number of elements, or else it specifies the number of elements (which is a

constant). It must be specified in the implementation specifications.

– The Type Description argument specifies the type of the array elements through a recursive

reference to the Type Description argument.
The arrays and the lists have the same type description.
Detailed access is not allowed on lists, but is allowed on arrays.

When the management object specified in the following is an array, it is always a variable

length array: a list. Its name contains the word "list" (like L-SAP-list). When it is a counter, its

name contains the word “counter”.

5.2 MIB objects linked to Physical Management Variables

For further details, see IEC 61334-5-1. The following MIB objects are directly associated with

the Physical Management Variables of the same name.
1. delta-electrical-phase::= NamedVariableObject {
variable-name 8, -- in decimal
scope-of-access VDE-specific,
scope-may-change TRUE,
life-time-is-vde TRUE,
type-description Unsigned8,
read-write-flag READ-ONLY,
available TRUE

The delta-electrical-phase variable indicates the phase difference between the client's

connecting phase and the server's connecting phase. The following values are predefined:

0: Not Defined: the server is temporarily not able to determine the phase difference,

1: the server system is connected to the same phase as the client system,

2: the phase difference between the server's connecting phase and the client's connecting

phase is equal to 60 degrees,

3: the phase difference between the server's connecting phase and the client's connecting

phase is equal to 120 degrees,

4: the phase difference between the server's connecting phase and the client's connecting

phase is equal to 180 degrees,

5: the phase difference between the server's connecting phase and the client's connecting

phase is equal to −120 degrees,

6: the phase difference between the server's connecting phase and the client's connecting

phase is equal to −60 degrees.
2. max-receiving-gain::= NamedVariableObject {
variable-name 136, -- in decimal
scope-of-access VDE-specific,
scope-may-change TRUE,
life-time-is-vde TRUE,
type-description Unsigned8,
read-write-flag READ-WRITE,
available TRUE

The max-receiving-gain variable corresponds to the maximum allowed gain bound to be used

by the server system in the receiving mode. No unit is specified. The unit, the default value as

well as the authorized values shall be specified in the implementation specifications.

5.3 MIB objects linked to MAC Management Variables

See IEC 61334-5-1 for more explanations. Among the following MIB objects, only the

synchronisation-locked object is not directly linked to a MAC Management Variable. All the

other objects have the same names as the associated MAC Management Variable described in

IEC 61334-5-1.
3. mac-address::= NamedVariableObject {
variable-name 32, -- in decimal
scope-of-access VDE-specific,
scope-may-change TRUE,
life-time-is-vde TRUE,
type-description Unsigned16,
read-write-flag READ-ONLY,
available TRUE

The mac-address variable contains the value of the physical attachment (MAC address)

associated to the local system. In the unconfigured state, the MAC address is NEW-address.

This variable is locally written by the CIASE when the system is registered (with a Register

service). The value is used in each outgoing or incoming frame. The default value is "NEW-

address".
This variable is set to NEW:
– by the MAC sublayer, once the time-out-not-addressed delay is exceeded,

– when the reset-NEW-not-synchronised MIB object is written (see the description of this

object).
When this variable is set to NEW:
1 the system loses its synchronisation (function of the MAC-sublayer)

2 the system automatically aborts all its abortable VAA objects that are linked to the mac-

address.
4. mac-group-addresses::= NamedVariableObject {
variable-name 40, -- in decimal
scope-of-access VDE-specific,
scope-may-change TRUE,
life-time-is-vde TRUE,
type-description SEQUENCE OF Unsigned16,
read-write-flag READ-WRITE,
available TRUE

The mac-group-addresses variable contains a set of MAC group addresses used for broadcast

purposes. The ALL-configured, ALL-physical-address and NO-BODY addresses are not

included in this list. These ones are internal predefined values. This variable shall be written by

the initiator using DLMS services to declare specific MAC group addresses on a server system.

This variable is locally read by the MAC sublayer when checking the destination address field

of a MAC frame not recognized as an individual address or as one of the three predefined

values (ALL-configured, ALL-physical and NO-BODY addresses).

The list has a limited size. This size must be specified in the implementation specifications.

variable-name 48, -- in decimal

scope-may-change TRUE,
life-time-is-vde TRUE,
type-description Unsigned8,

available TRUE

The repeater variable specifies whether the system effectively repeats all frames or not. If the

repeater variable is equal to 0, the server system should never repeat the frames. If it is set to

1, the server system is a repeater: it has to repeat all frames received without error and with a

current credit greater than zero. This variable may be written or read using DLMS services. The

value is internally read by the MAC sublayer, each time a frame is received. The default value

is 1.
6. synchronisation-confirmation-time-out::= NamedVariableObject {
variable-name 24, -- in decimal
scope-of-access VDE-specific,
scope-may-change TRUE,
life-time-is-vde TRUE,
type-description Unsigned16, -- in seconds
read-write-flag READ-WRITE,
available TRUE

A server system which just gets frame synchronised (detection of a data path equal to

AAAA54C7 hex) will automatically lose its frame synchronisation if the MAC sublayer does not

identify a valid MAC frame during a period of time equal to the value of the synchronisation-

confirmation-time-out variable. This delay is expressed in seconds and starts after the

reception of the first four bytes of a physical frame. The value of this variable can be modified
