In response to fulfill part of NOJA Power’s mission to offer its customers integrated solutions using innovative products, the company has incorporated IEC 61850 to its recloser controller (RC). IEC 61850, the standard protocol for power utility automation, has been approved to be utilised for smart grid solutions. It includes features that other protocols do not support, such as interoperability with intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) from different manufactures, self-describing components and using well-known protocols in the industry, like manufacturing message specification (MMS) and Ethernet to increase the speed requirements to safeguard the electrical system. These characteristics of the IEC standard are acknowledged by power utility engineers as essential for effective smart grid applications. Taking advantage of the characteristics of the company’s recloser to make it a versatile implementation of the standard’s versatility is not a specific characteristic of IEC 61850, but depends on how it has been applied to a device.
