This course will empower attendees by providing them with knowledge required to understand why IEC 61850 should be considered for smart grid projects. It will provide a summary of the key benefits of IEC 61850, including a checklist that provides a step-by-step approach to planning and specifying an IE C61850 project. Attendees will learn how to break down their high-level smart grid initiatives into manageable IEC 61850 use-cases. In addition, they will hear about the value-added features of IEC 61850 and will be taught how to articulate these benefits to the relevant stakeholders within their organization.

Major points covered include discussion about what differentiates IEC 61850 from its counterparts, the scope of IEC 61850 and where it fits into the smart grid roadmap, IEC 61850 basics, specific IEC 61850 use cases for various domains (distributed generation, bulk generation, transmission and distribution), the implications to the organizational structure when integrating IEC 61850 and how this impacts the work flow processes.
