Communication networks and systems for power utility automation - Part 7-420: Basic communication structure - Distributed energy resources and distribution automation logical nodes
The IEC 61850 DER information model standard utilizes existing IEC 61850-7-4 logical nodes where possible, while defining DER and DA specific logical nodes to provide the necessary data objects for DER and DA functions, including for the DER interconnection grid codes specified by various countries and regions.
Although this document explicitly addresses distribution-connected resources, most of the resource capabilities, operational functions, and architectures are also applicable to transmission-connected resources.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2009. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) Generic approach of modelling to support any kinds of DER including generation, storage and controllable loads;
b) Generic approach to support physical and virtual aggregation of DERs;
c) Full support of a wide range of operational functions to cover in particular grid codes functions as expressed in IEEE 1547 and EN 50549 or IEC 62786.
