Communication networks and systems for power utility automation - Part 8-2: Specific communication service mapping (SCSM) - Mapping to Extensible Messaging Presence Protocol (XMPP)


Do you need a multi-user copy?



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.
