Performance Measurements for IEC 61850 IEDs and Systems

Ever since IEC 61850 offered real-time communication by using GOOSE and/or Sampled Values, the performance of the IEDs and of the communication network has always been a big concern.  Since the concept of distributing mission and time critical information over a communication network is so revolutionary and unfamiliar to protection engineers, it causes much discomfort and objections. Current implementations are not backed by familiar ratings or specifications that allow at least a rough assessment of a device or a system suitability for a distinct purpose. Measuring the actual performance of an IED or communication system would put an end to assuming or guessing. More
