Abstract New Standard on the Net – IEC 61850 Guido Hahnloser Hirschmann Automation and Control Ethernet is a communication technology successfully introduced onto the market more than 20 years ago; it is used in the office and industrial sector. A look back at the past of Ethernet reveals a dynamic technology with development phases becoming shorter and shorter. Intelligent equipment and open networks based on Ethernet have a very large effect on changes in industrial automation. Ethernet is a transparent and simple communication technology on different levels of industrial automation and it is very cost effective. Nowadays more and more intelligent electronic devices are available for power automation which could communicate with Ethernet technology. The presentation show the development of the communication technology for substations. Communication equipment has to match the special requirements for the substation area. These requirements are specified in IEC 61850 standard. Very important is e.g. that the communication equipment (switches) supports redundant structures with fast reconfiguration time and the so-called “GOOSE” protocol.
