 IEC 2020
FOREWORD
This amendment has been prepared by IEC technical committee 57: Power systems
management and associated information exchange.

The motivation and goal of the amendment is to improve consistency of the data model over

all application domains of IEC 61850. Data (Logical Nodes, Data Objects, Data Attributes)

with the same semantics shall have the same naming where this part of IEC 61850 refers to

Logical Nodes and Data Objects and IEC 61850-7-3 to the Data Attributes.

Therefore, the amendement complements and updates the second edition of this part of

IEC 61850, which was published in 2010. It constitutes editorial revisions for consistency and

technical corrections of bugs as far as interoperability is touched.

To reach this goal and to keep it for all future as common working source a comprehensive

back-office UML version was created and will be maintained for future standard development.

The published parts of IEC 61850such as IEC 61850-7-4, on which the amendment is based,

are generated automatically from the UML version. This allows publishing, voting and reading

the various parts of IEC 61850-7 as in the past.

This amendment includes the following changes with respect to IEC 61850-7-4:2010:

• provides clarifications and corrections to the second edition of IEC 61850-7-4, based on

the tissues = {671, 672, 674, 675, 676, 677, 679, 680, 682, 683, 685, 686, 689, 693, 694,

695, 696, 712, 713, 714, 715, 716, 724, 725, 732, 734, 735, 736, 742, 743, 744, 748, 749,

772, 773, 774, 775, 776, 800, 802, 808, 819, 830, 831, 835, 838, 842, 843, 844, 849, 871,

877, 878, 879, 881, 882, 902, 908, 909, 910, 911, 912, 913, 920, 928, 932, 933, 937, 939,

940, 952, 967, 991, 1007, 1029, 1044, 1046, 1071, 1075, 1076, 1077, 1081, 1086, 1117,

1119, 1128, 1137, 1139, 1176, 1177, 1190, 1191, 1203, 1205, 1229, 1235, 1236, 1244,

1250, 1256, 1258, 1259, 1261, 1269, 1273, 1278, 1282, 1292, 1294, 1310, 1316, 1330,

1331, 1333, 1339, 1347, 1348, 1364, 1368, 1375, 1380, 1390, 1404, 1411, 1420, 1423,

1425, 1426, 1456, 1568};

• adds to each functional LN group a parent abstract Logical node where the functional

nodes are children from (full object oriented model). Since all abstract LNs are in a

common clause, the relative position of the functional LNs is not changed within their

clause.
• adds new abbreviated terms
• has extension of the list of abbreviate terms to be used for object names
• has more precise combination rules for abbreviated terms to object names

• has extensions by new logical nodes mainly from power quality domains and others

• has corrections of editorial errors.
Clauses 4 through 8 and their subclauses (except for 5.1, 5.2, and 5.3) and XML
enumerations from Annex H are automatically generated from the UML model.
The structure of the document has been changed for the following reasons:

– To split the description of logical nodes preliminaries (Clause 5) from logical node

specification (Clause 6). Some content of this clause has been moved from the previous

description of logical nodes (was in IEC 61850-7-4:2007(revision A – 5.1 and 5.2).

– To include abstract logical nodes. These abstract logical nodes have been described in

6.2.

– The specification of logical nodes begins with 6.3 (was in IEC 61850-7-4:2007 (revision A

– 5.3). In consequence all clauses in IEC 61850-7-4:2007 (revision A beginning with 5.3

count one number higher (beginning with 6.3) than they were in IEC 61850-7-4
(revision A).

 IEC 2020

– The description of data object semantics and enumerations starts with Clause 7. A new

clause has been included to specify the enumerations used in IEC 61850-7-4 separately.

Annex J and Annex K have been added.
The text of this amendment is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
57/2102A/FDIS 57/2133/RVD

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

on voting indicated in the above table.

The content of this part of IEC 61850 is based on existing or emerging standards and

applications. In particular the definitions are based upon:

• the specific data objects types defined in IEC 60870-5-101 and IEC 60870-5-103;

• the common class definitions from the Utility Communication Architecture 2.0: Generic

Object Models for Substation and Feeder Equipment (GOMSFE) (IEEE TR 1550);
• CIGRE Report 34-03, Communication requirements in terms of data flow within
substations, December 1996.

A list of all parts of the IEC 61850 series under the general title Communication networks and

systems for power utility automation, can be found on the IEC website.

This IEC standard includes Code Components i.e. components that are intended to be directly

processed by a computer. Such content is any text found between the markers

BEGINS> and , or otherwise is clearly labeled in this standard as a Code

Component. In the current version of this document, such indication is made at the beginning

of each concerned top-level clauses

The purchase of this IEC standard carries a copyright license for the purchaser to sell

software containing Code Components from this standard directly to end users and to end

users via distributors, subject to IEC software licensing conditions, which can be found at:

http://www.iec.ch/CCv1.

If any updates are required to the published code component that needs to apply immediately

and can not wait for an amendment (i.e. fixing a major problem), a new release of the Code

Component will be issued and distributed through the IEC WebSite. Any new release of the

Code Component related to this part will supersede any previously published Code
Component including the one published within the current document.

This publication contains attached nsd files which compose the Code Component of this part.

These files are intended to be used as a complement and do not form an integral part of this

standard.

– Full version will contain definition of the whole LNs defined in this standard with the

documentation associated and access will be restricted to purchaser of this part

– Light version will not contain the documentation but will contain the whole definition of the

LNs as per full version, and this light version will be freely accessible on the IEC website

for download, but the usage remains under the licensing conditions.

The Code Components for IEC 61850 data models (like LN definition in this IEC standard) are

available as the file format NSD defined by standard IEC 61850-7-7.

The Code Component included in this IEC standard are potentially subject to maintenance

works and user shall select the latest release in the repository located at:
http://www.iec.ch/tc57/supportdocuments
The latest version/release of the document will be found by selecting the file

IEC 61850-7-4.NSD.{VersionStateInfo}.full.zip with the filed VersionStateInfo of the highest

value.

Each Code Component is a ZIP package containing the electronic representation of the Code

Component itself, with a file describing the content of the package (IECManifest.xml).

The IECManifest contains different sections giving information on:
– The copyright notice
– The identification of the code component
– The publication related to the code component
– The list of the electronic files which compose the code component

– An optional list of history files to track changes during the evolution process of the

code component

The life cycle of a code component is not restricted to the life cycle of the related publication.

The publication life cycle goes through two stages, Version (corresponding to an edition) and

Revision (corresponding to an amendment). A third publication stage (Release) allow

publication of Code Component without need to publish an amendment.

This is useful when InterOp Tissues need to be fixed. Then a new release of the Code

Component will be released, which supersedes the previous release, and distributed through

the IEC TC57 web site.

3 Terms and definitions
Add the following new terms and definitions:
3.1
<> logical node class

abstract logical node class which is never instantiated, used to group common data objects

into a semantically meaningful entity and reuse them in a logical node class through

inheritance
3.2
<> logical node class

abstract logical node class with one special rule for changing the presence condition of some

of its data objects when they are inherited in the derived statistics (“ds”) context: in a logical

node that does not inherit from statistics logical node (i.e., Group L), the inherited “ds”

presence condition is not applicable (‘na’)
3.3
deprecated element

element still maintained in this edition of the standard, for backwards compatibility purpose,

but which is intended to be phased out in the next version of the standard

Note 1 to entry: A deprecated element by definition indicates what should be used instead.

3.4
presence condition

condition which specifies the occurance rules of data objects of logical node classes in

LNinstances of implementations
Note 1 to entry: Annex I shows an overview about possibles presence conditions.
3.5
scheduled entity

data object of one of the following common data classes APC, ASG, INS, ING SPC, SPG,

ENC or ENG where the control output or the value of the setting may be determined by the

scheduling system
3.6
scheduling system

collection containing a schedule controller and the schedules to which the schedule controller

refers

Note 1 to entry: The scheduling system is associated to a scheduled entity (by reference in the schedule

controller) and determines the behaviour of the scheduled entity.

4.2 Abbreviated terms used in data object names

The following terms are used to build concatenated data object names. For example, ChNum

is constructed by using two terms "Ch" which stands for "Channel" and "Num" which stands

for "Number". Thus the concatenated name represents a "channel number".

Table 1 shows normative terms that are combined to create data object names for all domains

of IEC 61850 and for the domain of IEC 61400-25.
