OpenIEC61850 - Overview
OpenIEC61850 is an open source implementation of the IEC 61850 standards series licensed under the LGPL. The library is written in Java and consists of an MMS client and server. Up to now the following ACSI services are supported:
- Association model services
- All GetDirectory and GetDataDefinition services
- GetDataValues and SetDataValues
- DATA-SET model services
- Report-Control-Block services (client only so far)
At Fraunhofer ISE we are using OpenIEC61850 for communication with DERs such as CHP units and PV plants.
In cases where Java is not an option (e.g. if you want to implement a server on very resource constrained systems) you can also consider libiec61850 which is an alternative implementation in C.
