|Publication Date:||1 July 2014|
|ICS Code (Telecontrol. Telemetering):||33.200|
This part of IEC 61850 defines the general requirements, mainly regarding construction, design and environmental conditions for utility communication and automation IEDs and systems in power plant and substation environments. These general requirements are in line with requirements for IEDs used in similar environments, for example measuring relays and protection equipment.
When communication or automation IEDs are an integral part of another device in the power plant or substation, then the environmental requirements for the device itself apply to the communications equipment.
