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).
