Communication networks and systems for power utility automation - Part 4: System and project management

IEC 61850-4:2011 applies to projects associated with process near automation systems of power utilities (UAS, utility automation system), like e.g. substation automation systems (SAS). It defines the system and project management for UAS systems with communication between intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) in the substation respective plant and the related system requirements. This second edition constitutes a technical revision to align the document more closely with the other parts of the IEC 61850 series, in addition to enlarging the scope from substation automation systems to all utility automation systems. This publication is of core relevance for Smart Grid.

Kommunikationsnetze und -systeme in Stationen - Teil 4: System- und Projektverwaltung

Réseaux et systèmes de communication pour l'automatisation des systèmes électriques - Partie 4: Gestion du système et gestion de projet

La CEI 61850-4:2011 s'applique à des projets associés aux procédés proches des systèmes d'automatisation des compagnies d'électricité (UAS), par exemple les systèmes d'automatisation de poste (SAS). Elle définit la gestion du système et la gestion de projet pour les systèmes UAS avec communication entre des dispositifs électroniques intelligents (IED) dans le poste ou le site ainsi que les exigences concernant les systèmes associés. La présente seconde édition constitue une révision technique avec des détails plus proches des autres parties de la série de Normes CEI 61850. Le domaine d'application porte non seulement sur les systèmes d'automatisation de poste, mais aussi sur tous les systèmes d'automatisation pour les compagnies d'électricité. This publication is of core relevance for Smart Grid.

Komunikacijska omrežja in sistemi za avtomatizacijo porabe električne energije - 4. del: Sistemsko in projektno upravljanje

Ta del IEC 61850 velja za projekte, povezane s sistemi za skoraj popolno avtomatizacijo porabe električne energije (UAS, sistem za avtomatizacijo porabe), kot so na primer sistemi avtomatizacije razdelilnih postaj (SAS). Opredeljuje sisteme in projektno upravljanje za sisteme UAS s komunikacijo med inteligentnimi elektronskimi napravami (IED) v inštalaciji ustrezne razdelilne postaje in povezane sistemske zahteve. Specifikacije v tem delu se nanašajo na sistem in projektno upravljanje glede na: - inženirski proces in podporna orodja; - življenjski cikel celotnega sistema in njegovih IED; - zagotavljanje kakovosti, ki se začne v fazi razvoja in konča s prenehanjem delovanja in umikom iz obratovanja UAS in njegovih IED. Opisane so zahteve za sistem in proces projektnega upravljanja in za posebna podporna orodja za inženiring ter preskušanje.

FOREWORD

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

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

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

and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical

Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”).

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 organiza-

tions liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Or-

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

organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of 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 inter-

ested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any misinter-

pretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence be-

tween any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and ex-

penses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC Publica-

tions.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

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

International Standard IEC 61850-4 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 57: Power

systems management and associated information exchange.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2002. It constitutes a

technical revision to align the document more closely with the other parts of the IEC 61850

series, in addition to enlarging the scope from substation automation systems to all utility au-

tomation systems.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:

Part 4: System and project management
1 Scope

This part of IEC 61850 applies to projects associated with process near automation systems of

power utilities (UAS, utility automation system), like e.g. substation automation systems (SAS).

It defines the system and project management for UAS systems with communication between

intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) in the substation respective plant and the related system

requirements.

The specifications of this part pertain to the system and project management with respect to:

– the engineering process and its supporting tools;
– the life cycle of the overall system and its IEDs;

– the quality assurance beginning with the development stage and ending with discon-

tinuation and decommissioning of the UAS and its IEDs.

The requirements of the system and project management process and of special supporting

tools for engineering and testing are described.

sions for communication with other IEDs.
3.13
manufacturer
the producer of IEDs and/or supporting tools

NOTE A manufacturer may be able to deliver an UAS solely by use of his own IEDs and supporting tools (UAS

product family).
3.14
system integrator
a turnkey deliverer of UAS installations

NOTE The responsibility of system integration includes the engineering, the delivery and mounting of all participat-

ing IEDs, the factory and site acceptance tests and the trial operation. The quality assurance, the maintenance and

spare delivery obligations and the warranty are agreed in the contract between the system integrator and the cus-

tomer. A system integrator may use IEDs from several different manufacturers.
3.15
