IEC TR 61850-90-16:2021(E) which is a technical report, specifies the mechanisms for the system management of Smart Grid Devices as IEC 61850 equipment in power utility automation as well as telecommunication and cybersecurity equipment.
System Management of Smart Grid Devices or Smart Grid Device Management refers to functionalities that are not directly linked to the operational role of the equipment (which for grid automation equipment would be to protect and allow remote supervision and control on the grid) but allow it to perform its operational functions in the best conditions possible.
The main functions of Smart Grid Device Management can be categorized as illustrated in Figure 1 and described below. These actions being available from remote information systems, they affect system automation functions, telecommunication functions and cybersecurity functions as these three categories are interacting in a Smart grid Device or system.
The Smart Grid domain has been chosen for these use cases, including distributed energy resources. This content is expected to be applicable to other domains, such as industrial automation domain and grid user domain.
