IEC 61850 was developed on the basis of some key requirements which are also at the core of every OPAL-RT solutions: Technology independent, flexible and expandable.
OPAL-RT’s Real-Time Simulators work great with every protection and control IEDs that operates as a logical node defined in IEC 61850-7-4 and based on the IEC 61850 light edition (LE) and standard edition:
- Protective relay
- Merging unit
- Setting less protection relay
- State estimation based tools
- IEC 61869-9 Low Power Instrument Transformers (LPIT) / Non-Conventional Instrument Transformers (NCIT)
In addition, OPAL-RT supports IEEE1588v2 as well as IEC 61850-9-3, the leading standard for time synchronization in digital substations.
