The participants will gain essential knowledge in substation communication based on Ethernet and IEC61850. The participants will be familiar with the concept and configuration of device communication via IEC61850 protocol on the basic of data exchange between the devices belonging to the bay or station level they are connected to the Ethernet Bus. The basics of the Ethernet communication profile and the application of diverse communication topologies will be presented. The basics of testing Ethernet compliant with IEC61850 will be presented. The participants will realize a GOOSE communication between SIPROTEC 5 devices as well as between SIPROTEC 5 and SIPROTEC devices.

Professional users of power supply utilities and industry who deal with the planning, configuration, commissioning, maintenance and operation of SIPROTEC 5 and SIPROTEC 4 as well as to Station Automation Systems with IEC61850 Communication Systems.
