IEC 61968-3:2021 provides utilities with the means to supervise main substation topology (breaker and switch state), feeder topology and control equipment status through SCADA, AMI and other data sources. It also provides the means for handling network connectivity and loading conditions. Finally, it makes it possible for utilities to locate customer telephone complaints and coordinate activities of field crews with respect to planned and unplanned outages.
IEC 61968-3 specifies the information content of a set of message payloads that can be used to support many of the business functions related to network operations. Typical uses of the message payloads defined in IEC 61968-3 include data acquisition by external systems, fault isolation, fault restoration, trouble management and coordination of the real-time state of the network.
The scope illustrates the possibility of implementing IEC 61968-3 functionality as either a single integrated advanced distribution management system or as a set of separate functions – OMS, DMS and SCADA. Utilities may choose to buy these systems from different vendors and integrate them using the IEC 61968-3 messages. Alternatively, a single vendor could provide two or all of these components as a single integrated system. In the case of more than one system being provided by the same vendor, the vendor may choose to use either extensions of the IEC 61968 messages or a proprietary integration mechanism to provide enhanced functionality over and above what is required/supported by the IEC 61968-3 specification. While this is a possible implementation, Subclause 4.3 defines the scope in terms of business functions that are implemented in common vendor offerings.
Annexes in this document detail integration scenarios or use cases, which are informative examples showing typical ways of using the message payloads defined in this document as well as message payloads to be defined in other parts of the IEC 61968 series

IEC TR 61850-7-5:2021, which is a technical report, establishes modelling concepts that help the user to understand how to apply the models defined in IEC 61850-7-4 and IEC 61850-7-3 to implement practical applications.
This document provides the basic concepts that are valid for all application domains using IEC 61850. Domain specific concepts are defined in other technical reports as in the document range of IEC 61850-7-5xx; as an example, IEC 61850-7-500 describes modelling concepts for functions related to substation automation.
On one side the number of potential topics for cross-domain modelling may be very high but on the other side it may be limited by domain specific restrictions often created by the historical evolution of IEC 61850 in the domains.
The first topic selected is the common control of power utility primary objects by means of the power utility automation systems based mainly on the long experience in substation automation systems. Common attributes for reliable power utility automation systems in all domains are quality and health. A special function having a broad application range in power utility automation systems is the scheduling of services as provided by the domain distributed energy resources (DER) used in smart grids, especially also for electric mobility. Not yet so much discussed in the context of IEC 61850 but very important for all IEDs is the impact of restart (power cycle) on the data model parameters. Non-agreed behaviour will raise problems for interoperability in multi-vendor systems.

IEC 62488-3:2021(E) applies to power line carrier terminals and networks used to transmit information over power networks including extra high, high and medium voltage (EHV/HV/MV) power lines using both digital and optionally analogue modulation systems in a frequency range between 16 kHz and 1 MHz (see also IEC 62488-1).
In many countries, power line carrier (PLC) channels represent a significant part of the utility-owned telecommunication system. A circuit normally routed via a PLC channel can also be routed via a channel using a different transmission medium such as point to point radio, optical fibre or open wire circuit.
It is therefore important that the input and output interfaces that are used between terminals in the communication system are standardised.
The issues requiring consideration of DPLC and/or APLC devices as parts of a telecommunication network can be found in IEC 62488-1.
The scope of this document also includes the description of I/O interfaces and test set-ups that are necessary to qualify characteristics of DPLC or ADPLC terminal at link level.

IEC 61968-13:2021 specifies profiles that can be used to exchange Network Models in a Utility or between a Utility and external applications to the utility. This document provides a list of profiles which allow to model balanced and unbalanced distribution networks in order to conduct network analysis (Power flow calculation). Therefore it leverages already existing profiles (IEC 61970-45x based on IEC 61970-301 (CIM base) or profiles based on IEC 61968­11 CIM extension for Distribution). This document reuses some profiles without any change, or eventually extends them or restricts them. Moreover it proposes other profiles to reflect Distribution needs.
Use of CIM in Distribution is not a new topic. This document includes informative parts, as CIM model extensions, which could be integrated in future versions of the IEC CIM Model. These extensions have been used by some utilities for utility internal information exchange use cases and to support information exchanges between different market participants like Transmisstion System Operators (TSO), Distributed System Operators (DSO), Distributed Network Operators (DNO) and Significant Grid Users (SGU) including generators and industry.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2008. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition was pre-tested during 2016 ENTSO-E interoperability tests. The interoperability test report mentions: "Some vendors demonstrated that the transformation between distribution network and CGMES is possible. This is a first step towards the efforts to have closer integration between CGMES and profiles for exchanging distribution data (CDPSM)."

IEC 61970-457:2021 specifies a standard interface for exchanging dynamic model information needed to support the analysis of the steady state stability (small-signal stability) and/or transient stability of a power system or parts of it. The schema(s) for expressing the dynamic model information are derived directly from the CIM, more specifically from IEC 61970-302.
The scope of this document includes only the dynamic model information that needs to be exchanged as part of a dynamic study, namely the type, description and parameters of each control equipment associated with a piece of power system equipment included in the steady state solution of a complete power system network model. Therefore, this profile is dependent upon other standard profiles for the equipment as specified in IEC 61970-452, CIM static transmission network model profiles, the topology, the steady state hypothesis and the steady-state solution (as specified in IEC 61970-456, Solved power system state profiles) of the power system, which bounds the scope of the exchange. The profile information described by this document needs to be exchanged in conjunction with IEC 61970-452 and IEC 61970-456 profiles’ information to support the data requirements of transient analysis tools. IEC 61970 456 provides a detailed description of how different profile standards can be combined to form various types of power system network model exchanges.
This document supports the exchange of the following types of dynamic models:
• standard models: a simplified approach to exchange, where models are contained in predefined libraries of classes interconnected in a standard manner that represent dynamic behaviour of elements of the power system. The exchange only indicates the name of the model along with the attributes needed to describe its behaviour.
• proprietary user-defined models: an exchange that would provide users the ability to exchange the parameters of a model representing a vendor or user proprietary device where an explicit description of the model is not described in this document. The connections between the proprietary models and standard models are the same as described for the standard models exchange. Recipient of the data exchange will need to contact the sender for the behavioural details of the model.
This document builds on IEC 61970-302, CIM for dynamics which defines the descriptions of the standard dynamic models, their function block diagrams, and how they are interconnected and associated with the static network model. This type of model information is assumed to be pre-stored by all software applications hence it is not necessary to be exchanged in real-time or as part of a dynamics model exchange.

IEC TR 62351-90-3:2021, which is a technical report, provides guidelines for efficiently handling both IT and OT data in terms of their monitoring, classification and correlations on them to deduce any possible useful outcomes about the state of the power system.
The convergence of information technologies (IT) and operational technologies (OT) refers to the integration of the systems, processes and data associated with the domains of IT and OT. This document provides guidelines for a comprehensive security monitoring for power grid components based on IT/OT convergent systems. The emphasis is about the development of a methodology and a set of recommendations for utility operators to build a general monitoring framework based on the analysis of the data collected from different IT and OT systems through network management, traffic inspection, and system activity readings. As such, the monitoring framework that this document introduces relies on the integration of management and logging information obtained using IEC 62351-7 and IEC 62351-14, respectively. Further systems and data sources from IT and OT would be considered such as the data obtained, for instance, through the IT network management using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), the passive network monitoring, and the functional characterization of control and automation processes.
This document's recommendations include the implementation of data collection, filtering and correlation mechanisms. The development of data analytics algorithms is out of the scope of this document and would be left to utility operators and owners. Finally, applications of the general monitoring framework guidelines and recommendations are provided for different power grid environments, namely for IEC 61850 substations and for Distributed Energy Resources (DER) systems.

IEC 61968-5:2020 is the description of a set of functions that are needed for enterprise integration of DERMS functions. These exchanges are most likely between a DERMS and a DMS. However, since this is an enterprise integration standard which may leverage IEC 61968-100:2013 for application integration (using web services or JMS) or other loosely-coupled implementations, there are no technical limitations for systems with which a DERMS might exchange information. Also, it should be noted that a DERMS might communicate with individual DER using a variety of standards and protocols such as IEC 61850, IEEE 2030.5, Distribution Network Protocol (DNP), Sunspec Modbus, or perhaps Open Field Message Bus (OpenFMB). One role of the DERMS is to manage this disparity and complexity of communications on the behalf of the system operator. However, the communication to individual DER is out of scope of this standard. Readers should look to those standards to understand communication to individual DER’s smart inverter.
The scope will be limited to the following use case categories:
• DER group creation – a mechanism to manage DER in aggregate
• DER group maintenance – a mechanism to add, remove, or modify the members and/or aggregated capabilities of a given group of DER
• DER group deletion – removing an entire group
• DER group status monitoring – a mechanism for quantifying or ascertaining the current capabilities and/or status of a group of DER
• DER group forecast – a mechanism for predicting the capabilities and/or status of a group of DER for a given time period in the future
• DER group dispatch – a mechanism for requesting that specified capabilities of a group of DER be dispatched to the grid
• DER group voltage ramp rate control – a mechanism for requesting that a DER group following a ramp rate curve
• DER group connect/disconnect – a mechanism to request that DER either isolate themselves, or reconnect to the grid as needed.

IEC 61970-301:2020 (E) lays down the common information model (CIM), which is an abstract model that represents all the major objects in an electric utility enterprise typically involved in utility operations. By providing a standard way of representing power system resources as object classes and attributes, along with their relationships, the CIM facilitates the integration of network applications developed independently by different vendors, between entire systems running network applications developed independently, or between a system running network applications and other systems concerned with different aspects of power system operations, such as generation or distribution management. SCADA is modeled to the extent necessary to support power system simulation and inter-control centre communication. The CIM facilitates integration by defining a common language (i.e. semantics) based on the CIM to enable these applications or systems to access public data and exchange information independent of how such information is represented internally. This edition reflects the model content version ‘IEC61970CIM17v38’, dated ‘2020-01-21’, and includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) Added Feeder modelling;
b) Added ICCP configuration modelling;

IEC TS 61850-1-2:2020, which is a technical specification, is intended for any users but primarily for standardization bodies that are considering using IEC 61850 as a base standard within the scope of their work and are willing to extend it as allowed by the IEC 61850 standards. This document identifies the required steps and high-level requirements in achieving such extensions of IEC 61850 and provides guidelines for the individual steps.
Within that scope, this document addresses the following cases:
• The management of product-level standards for products that have an interface based on IEC 61850
• The management of domain-level standards based on IEC 61850
• The management of transitional standards based on IEC 61850
• The management of private namespaces based on IEC 61850
• The development of standards offering the mapping of IEC 61850 data model at CDC level
• The development and management of IEC 61850 profiles for domains (underlying the role of IEC TR 62361-103 and IEC TR 61850-7-6)
This document includes both technical and process aspects:
On the technical side, this document:
• Reminds the main basic requirements (mostly referring to the appropriate parts of the series which host the requirements or recommendations)
• Lists all possible flexibilities offered by the standards
• Defines which flexibilities are allowed/possible per type of extension cases
On the process side, the document covers:
• The initial analysis of how the existing IEC 61850 object models and/or communication services may be applied and what allowed extensions may be required for utilizing them in new or specific domains (including private ones). The results of that step are expected to be documented
• The extension of the IEC 61850 object models for new domains. The typical associated work is to identify existing logical nodes which can be reused "as is", to determine if existing logical nodes can be extended, or to define new logical nodes
• The purpose and process to use transitional namespaces, which are expected to be merged eventually into an existing standard namespace
• The management of standard namespaces
• The development of private namespaces

IEC 61968-1:2020 is the first in a series that, taken as a whole, defines interfaces for the major elements of an interface architecture for power system management and associated information exchange.
This document identifies and establishes recommendations for standard interfaces based on an Interface Reference Model (IRM). Subsequent clauses of this document are based on each interface identified in the IRM. This set of standards is limited to the definition of interfaces. They provide for interoperability among different computer systems, platforms, and languages. IEC 61968-100 gives recommendations for methods and technologies to be used to implement functionality conforming to these interfaces.
As used in IEC 61968, distribution management consists of various distributed application components for the utility to manage electrical distribution networks. These capabilities include monitoring and control of equipment for power delivery, management processes to ensure system reliability, voltage management, demand-side management, outage management, work management, network model management, facilities management, and metering. The IRM is specified in Clause 3. The IRM defines the high-level view of the TC 57 reference architecture and the detailed in the relevant 61968 series, 61970 series or 62325 series. The goal of the IRM is to provide a common relevant context view for TC 57 that covers domains like transmission, distribution, market, generation, consumer, regional reliability operators, and regulators.
This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2012. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) update of IRM section, which has been out of date since the 2nd edition;
b) update to IRM model using ArchiMate modelling language;
c) addition of missing business functions and business objects;
d) alignment with newly released documents from the technical committee;
e) alignment with IEC 61968-100;
f) update of annexes.

IEC 62351-100-3:2020, which is a technical specification, describes test cases of data and communication security for telecontrol equipment, Substation Automation Systems [SAS] and telecontrol systems, including front-end functions of SCADA.
The goal of this document is to enable interoperability by providing a standard method of testing protocol implementations to verify that a device fulfils the requirement of IEC 62351-3. Note that conformity to IEC 62351-3 does not guarantee interoperability between devices using different implementations. It is expected that using this specification during testing will minimize the risk of non-interoperability. A basic condition for this interoperability is a passed conformance test of both devices.
The scope of this document is the specification of common available procedures and definitions for conformance and/or interoperability testing to ensure conformity to IEC 62351-3. The conformance test cases defined here are focused to verify the conformant integration of the underlying authentication/encryption protocol (TLS), as specified in IEC 62351-3, to protect TCP/IP based communications.
This document is not intended to test the underlying authentication/encryption protocol required by IEC 62351-3 to be implemented over TCP/IP (TLS). The conformance testing of the authentication/encryption protocol over TCP/IP is outside the scope of this document.
This document deals with data and communication security conformance testing; therefore, other requirements, such as safety or EMC are not covered. These requirements are covered by other standards (if applicable) and the proof of compliance for these topics is done according to these standards.

IEC 62357-2:2019 (E), which is a technical report, establishes the list of Use Cases developed by TC 57, Power systems management and associated information exchanges, in order to prepare International Standards, Technical Reports and Technical Specifications. Use Cases are fundamental to TC 57 publications This Technical Report:
• Identifies in existing standards, technical specification, reports and in ongoing TC 57 work (CD, DTS, DTR etc.) the Use Cases used as well as their links to standards, their status as Use Cases (level of description, standardization of the description referring to IEC 62559) and as IEC deliverables (are they in a TR/TS/IS, what is the status of the document CD, CDV etc.)
• Helps System Committees consolidate Use Cases through terminology and term definition work (link with existing relevant standards on the TC Terminology) and building links between roles and modelling frameworks (Role models). For example in TC 57 building links between the Use Case methodology and the roles used in IEC 62913-2 with CIM Interface Reference Model (IRM – IEC 61968).
• Shares and promotes those Use Cases within TC 57 and outside it. TC 57 mainly describes System Use Cases in the standards it publishes. Business roles and business Use Cases are mainly described within SyC SE (System Committee Smart Energy) deliverables (IEC 62559 series and IEC 62913 series).
• This document provides good input in reusing System Use Cases and System Roles inside and outside TC 57.
• Explains the content of its Use Cases to potential users and providing support on using those Use Cases for standardization (Normative context, maturity of the Use Case, location in standardization work, roles implied)
Those Use Cases aimed to be used as tools to identify requirements as input to further development of technical standards (whether TC 57 or not) and improve the consistency in this work and in that way contribute to interoperability. Use Cases facilitate cooperation at a system level with TCs, other standards-developing organizations, non-traditional players of electrotechnology, and regional organizations. Inside the IEC they provide a convergence platform with overall system level value for support of the Technical Committees and other standard development groups.
This document allows TC 57 to self-assess its work on Use Cases through KPIs (Key Performance Indicator) such as:
• % of Use Cases compliant with IEC 62559-2
• % of Business Use Cases (BUC) and System Use Cases (SUC)
• % of Business Roles and System Roles

EC 61850-8-2:2018 specifies a method of exchanging data through any kinds of network, including public networks. Among the various kinds of services specified in IEC 61850-7-2, only the client/server and time synchronization services are considered so far.
NOTE Client/server services of GOOSE and SMV models are mapped as well.
For the client/server services, the principle is to map the objects and services of the ACSI (Abstract Communication Service Interface defined in IEC 61850-7-2) to XML messages transported over XMPP. The mapping description includes mainly three aspects:
• The usage of the XMPP protocol itself, describing in details which features are really used and how they are used by the mapping.
• How to achieve end-to-end secured communications.
• The description of the XML payloads corresponding to each ACSI service thanks in particular to the XML Schema and XML message examples.

The conformance test cases defined herein are focused to verify the conformant integration of the underlying authentication, as specified in IEC TS 62351-5 and IEC TS 60870-5-7, to protect IEC 60870-5-101 and IEC 6870-5-104-based communications.
This document deals with data and communication security conformance testing; therefore, other requirements, such as safety or EMC, are not covered. These requirements are covered by other standards (if applicable) and the proof of compliance for these topics is done according to these standards.

IEC TR 62351-90-2:2018, which is a technical report, addresses the need to perform Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) on communication channels secured by IEC 62351. The main focus is the illustration of the state-of-the art of DPI techniques that can be applied to the various kinds of channels, highlighting the possible security risks and implementation costs. Additional, beyond state-of-the-art proposals are also described in order to circumvent the main limits of existing solutions.
It is to be noted that some communications secured by IEC 62351 are not encrypted, but only add integrity and non-repudiation of the message – however they are mentioned here for the sake of completeness around IEC 62351 and DPI

IEC 62325-503:2018 specifies a standard for a communication platform which every Transmission System Operator (TSO) in Europe can use to exchange reliably and securely documents for the energy market. Consequently a European market participant (TSO, regional supervision centre, distribution utility, power exchange, etc.) could benefit from a single, common, harmonised and secure platform for message exchange with other participants; thus, reducing the cost of building different information technology (IT) platforms to interface with all the parties involved. This edition cancels and replaces IEC TS 62325-503 published in 2014.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) Use of ISO/IEC 19464:2014, Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) v1.0 specification;
b) Splitting of the node described in the IEC TS 62325-503:2014 into a broker that implements the messaging function and a directory;
c) Increase of operability and resilience of the communication system with the ability for an endpoint to send and receive messages through several brokers;
d) Benefits of standardisation, performance and scalability of the AMQP protocol for transferring messages.

IEC 62351-9:2017 specifies cryptographic key management, namely how to generate, distribute, revoke, and handle public-key certificates and cryptographic keys to protect digital data and its communication. Included in the scope is the handling of asymmetric keys (e.g. private keys and public-key certificates), as well as symmetric keys for groups (GDOI). This document assumes that other standards have already chosen the type of keys and cryptography that will be utilized, since the cryptography algorithms and key materials chosen will be typically mandated by an organization’s own local security policies and by the need to be compliant with other international standards. This document therefore specifies only the management techniques for these selected key and cryptography infrastructures. The objective is to define requirements and technologies to achieve interoperability of key management. The purpose of this document is to guarantee interoperability among different vendors by specifying or limiting key management options to be used. This document assumes that the reader understands cryptography and PKI principles.

IEC 61970-301:2016 is available as IEC 61970-301:2016 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.
IEC 61970-301:2016 lays down the common information model (CIM), which is an abstract model that represents all the major objects in an electric utility enterprise typically involved in utility operations. By providing a standard way of representing power system resources as object classes and attributes, along with their relationships, the CIM facilitates the integration of network applications developed independently by different vendors, between entire systems running network applications developed independently, or between a system running network applications and other systems concerned with different aspects of power system operations, such as generation or distribution management. SCADA is modeled to the extent necessary to support power system simulation and inter-control centre communication. The CIM facilitates integration by defining a common language (i.e. semantics) based on the CIM to enable these applications or systems to access public data and exchange information independent of how such information is represented internally. This new edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- new model for grounding including Petersen coils;
- models for HVDC; addition of Static Var Compensation models;
- phase shift transformer updates;
- short circuit calculations based on IEC 60909;
- addition of non-linear shunt compensator;
- addition of model for steady state calculation inputs, Steady State Hypothesis;
- addition of base frequency model;
- Annex A with custom extensions added.
