International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 61850-10:2013
Title Communication networks and systems for power utility automation - Part 10: Conformance testing
Project Number 23673
Abstract/Scope IEC 61850-10:2012 specifies standard techniques for testing of conformance of client, server and sampled value devices and engineering tools, as well as specific measurement techniques to be applied when declaring performance parameters. The use of these techniques will enhance the ability of the system integrator to integrate IEDs easily, operate IEDs correctly, and support the applications as intended. The major technical changes with regard to the previous edition are as follows: - updates to server device conformance test procedures; - additions of certain test procedures (client device conformance, sampled values device conformance, (engineering) tool related conformance, GOOSE performance).

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
