IEC 61850 standard series offers, among other things, convenient and flexible methods of carrying out testing in SASs. Logically isolating IEDs using the simulation feature and monitoring the status of subscriptions for GOOSE and SV communication via dedicated LN classes are two of the most useful features introduced in Edition 2 of IEC 61850 standard. With IEC 61850 fast becoming the industry norm for power system automation in many parts of the world, it is important that personnel responsible for operating power grids are familiar with it. This paper discusses the implementation and the application of advanced IEC 61850 Edition 2 features related to testing in a digital real-time simulator.
