AC800F controler with IEC61850 bus
Is it possible to connect and configure ABB REF xxx Feeder Terminals and REM xxx Motor/Generator Terminals via IEC61850 bus to AC800F controler, Freelance system? Does ABB have dedicated module for this purpose?
I think there is necessary to start a little bit wider.
In case of implementation (IEC61850) generaly you have 2 possibilities:
1. horizontal integration / implementation (HW communication module / card)
2. vertical integration / implementation (implementation directly application layer)
IEC 61850 implementation possibilities (for better idea about solution):
The easiest way for implementation is vertical one (also regarding saving costs for DCS HW, DCS licenses, engineering thru all phases (no interconnection thru controllers). If there is requeted in DCS tzhe same functionality like for standard SCADA solution than use this variant - this is the right way.
Horizontal variant is more complicated and more expencive for implementation. DCS HW communication module / card is node of IEC61850 (has to be imported to IED concept like any other IED - SCD imports / exports, configurations and so on). Additionally this implementation is used only for "quick" telegrams (blocking conditions, protection functions, regulators, voltage / current trasmittion to other protection devices). Generaly is this kind of solution suitable for tasks / functions with very high priority. Beacuse of this it is not suitable for hudge data trasmittion like prtection logs and tasks with lower priorities like standard substation control. Be sure you will have a problem to find application where can be this implementation suitable (especially if all protection / blocking interfaces on substations are hard wired).
Hope this helps.
It is not possible to connect and configure ABB REF xxx Feeder Terminals and REM xxx Motor/Generator Terminals via IEC61850 bus to AC 800F controler, Freelance system.
However it is possible to connect and communicate with ABB REF & REM devices over communication protocols - Modbus to get status and measurement signals to AC 800f. in sevaral projects in PDCS system this combination is used (freelance - modbus - REFxxx/PRxxx)
If you are looking for IEC61850 based solution. It is possible with AC 800M, System 800xA. Find Special Report IEC 61850 at page 42 about system 800xA & IEC 61850 @
