IEC 61850-7-4-2020 Communication networks and systems for power utility automation – Part 7-4: Basic communication structure – Compatible logical node classes and data object classes.
This part of IEC 61 850 specifies the information model of devices and functions generally related to common use regarding applications in systems for power utility automation. It also contains the information model of devices and function-related applications in substations. In particular, it specifies the compatible logical node names and data object names for communication between intelligent electronic devices (IED). This includes the relationship between logical nodes and data objects.
The logical node names and data object names defined in this document are part of the class model introduced in IEC 61 850-7-1 and defined in IEC 61 850-7-2.
The names defined in this document are used to build the hierarchical object references applied for communicating with IEDs in systems for power utility automation and, especially, with IEDs in substations and on distribution feeders.
The naming conventions of IEC 61 850-7-2 are applied in this part. To avoid private, incompatible extensions, this part specifies normative naming rules for multiple instances and private, compatible extensions of logical node (LN) classes and data object names. Any definition is based on IEC 61 850 or on referenced well identified public documents. This part does not provide tutorial material. It is recommended to read parts IEC 61 850-5 and IEC 61 850-7-1 first, in conjunction with IEC 61 850-7-3, and IEC 61 850-7-2. This standard is applicable to describe device models and functions of substation and feeder equipment. The concepts defined in this standard are also applied to describe device models and functions for:
• substation-to-substation information exchange,
• substation-to-control centre information exchange,
• power plant-to-control centre information exchange,
• information exchange for distributed generation,
• information exchange for distributed energy resources,
• information exchange for metering,
• information exchanged for hydro power plants, or
• information exchange for wind generation plants.
Figure 1 provides a general overview of this standard. The groups of logical nodes defined in this standard are shown in Figure 1 . For convenience, the logical nodes are defined below in alphabetical order.IEC 61850-7-4 pdf download.
