The protocolstack IEC 61850, Client allows the communication between ipConv gateway and IEC 61850 devices.
Disturbance data recorded and saved in COMTRADE format (Common Format for Transient Data Exchange) are stored on the protection devices MiCOM P74x.
The ipConv gateway reads out these COMTRADE files and converts the disturbance data internally to information objects compliant to IEC 60870-5-103.
The gateway is able to buffer numerous disturbance files.
The time synchronisation of the IEDs (Intelligent Electronic Device) is done by an NTP server configured within the gateway.
The gateway time is set by the master control station.
