OPC server strange behaviour without IEDs
We are implimenting IEC61850 communication from the 800xa to a substation at an industy.
The substations IEDs are not yet connected to the network, and thus the IEDs are not up and running yet.
An OPC server have been configured and all IEDs have been added (still offline).
When looking at the OPC server it behaves very strange, it changes status of it state continuisly. It switch between states Initilized, Error, Service. This is the 4th OPC server added.
Is the behaviour of the OPC server because there is no connection the the IEDs yes?
If no, any ideas why the OPC serve state is behaving so strange?
This is correct behaviour as there is no IED online OPC server will trying to connect everytime.
Simulate any one IED in the same OPC network in CET as attached and OPC server will be in service.And don't forget to remove it from simulation when real IED is connected to network.
