Pre-requsites to install CI868 in existing 800xA 5.1 system with PM864 controller
Kinldy help me with the installation & configuration of CI868 with PM864 controller being presently used. We are using IEC 61850 for communication with power automation relays.
Some basic questions - Are the libraries readily available within the control builder for communication with the CI868 module?
What are the basic steps to be followed for configuring the IEC 61850 card with the controller and our stand alone system ( single engineering node ) ?
Could you please share the link for the best available manual on CI 868 card which describes the protocol in detail and its connectivity also.

About libraries: ABB released a powerful library this year called MIDAS: http://www04.abb.com/global/seitp/seitp202.nsf/0/00c65b96ca0a033783257d65002c41
System 800xA 5.1 FP4 RevD offers you the possibility to configurate CI868 as IED (IEC61850) or as an OPC Server (MMS).
Basicly, you need to import your .SCD file using the IEC61850 Wizard Tool (right-click button in CI868).
There are two blocks availables for IED control in the librarie ProcessObjBasicLib 2.5-3 (IEDCommandSend and IEDStatusRecieve).
Control Builder Application for IEC 61850 GOOSE Communication configuration workflow starts at page 314 in 9ARD171384-510_B_en_System_800xA_IEC_61850_5.1_Engineering_Workflow manual.
