What is a Logical Node?
By Karlheinz Schwarz, SCC, schwarz@scc-online.de
Motivation The standard IEC 61850 Communication networks and systems in substations and the
coming standard IEC 61400-25 Communications for monitoring and control of wind power
plants use the concept of Logical Nodes (LN) as a key element to define the information of
a device to be communicated. This paper introduces the concept of LNs.

Modeling A key issue are the LNs representing functions or equipment used in power systems. Each
oncept LN provides a list of well organized and named information. The LN XCBR5 represents
the circuit breaker number 5 with the data Pos (Position) and Mode. Services defined
in IEC 61850-7-2 allow the exchange of this information.

ACSI overview and basic concepts

General

The models of the ACSI provide

the specification of a basic model for the definition of the substation-specific information models contained
in IEC 61850-7-3 (common DATA classes) and IEC 61850-7-4 (compatible LOGICAL-NODE classes and
compatible DATA classes) and
the specification of information exchange service models.

The information models and information exchange services are interwoven. From a descriptive point of view, the
two aspects are separated to some degree (see the excerpt shown in Figure 1). The common models (for
example, LOGICAL-NODE and DATA classes including their services) are applied in IEC 61850-7-3 and IEC
61850-7-4 to define many specialized information models - the substation automation models.

Figure 1 - Excerpt of conceptual model

Other service models required for substation automation systems (for example, DATA-SET and reporting provide
specific information exchange services) are also defined in this part of the standard; these models are linked to
LOGICAL-NODEs and DATA. The information exchange services are completely defined in the ACSI. The
information models defined in IEC 61850-7-4 reference the services defined in the various models of the ACSI.

Overview of basic information models

The conceptual models to build the domain-specific information models are:

SERVER - represents the external visible behaviour of a device. All other ACSI models are part of the
server.
NOTE 1 A server has two roles: to communicate with a client (most service models in IEC 61850 provide
communication with client devices) and to send information to peer devices (for example, for sampled
values).
LOGICAL-DEVICE (LD) - contains the information produced and consumed by a group of domain-specific
application functions; functions are defined as LOGICAL-NODEs.
LOGICAL-NODE (LN) - contains the information produced and consumed by a domain-specific application
function, for example, overvoltage protection or circuit-breaker.
DATA - provide means to specify typed information, for example, position of a switch with quality
information and timestamp, contained in LOGICAL-NODEs.
Each of these information models is defined as a class. The classes comprise attributes and services. The
conceptual class diagram of the ACSI is depicted in Figure 2.

NOTE 2 The classes are major building blocks that provide the framework for substation automation device
models. Additional details on the modelling and relations between IEC 61850-7-4, IEC 61850-7-3, and this part of
IEC 61850 can be found in IEC 61850-7-1.

NOTE 3 The numbers in the circles indicate the respective clauses in this part of IEC 61850.

The Name class is inherited by the classes LOGICAL-DEVICE, LOGICAL-NODE, DATA, and DataAttribute.

EXAMPLE In an implementation the logical device, logical node, data, and data attribute have each an object
name (instance name) which is a unique name among classes of the same container to which they belong. In
addition, each of the four has an ObjectReference (path name) which is a concatenation of all object names from
each container. The four object names (one per column) can be concatenated.

Logical device Logical node Data Data attribute

Object name "Atlanta_HV5" "XCBR1" "Pos" "stVal"


Description High-voltage station 5 Circuit-breaker 1 Position Status value

Overview of the other service models

In addition to the models listed above, the ACSI comprises the following models that provide services operating
on data, data attributes, and data sets.

DATA-SET - permits the grouping of data and data attributes. Used for direct access and for reporting and
logging.
Substitution - supports replacement of a process value by another value.
SETTING-GROUP-CONTROL-BLOCK - defines how to switch from one set of setting values to another
one and how to edit setting groups.
REPORT-CONTROL-BLOCK and LOG-CONTROL-BLOCK - describe the conditions for generating
reports and logs based on parameters set by the client. Reports may be triggered by changes of process
data values (for example, state change or dead band) or by quality changes. Logs can be queried for later
retrieval. Reports may be sent immediately or deferred. Reports provide change-of-state and sequence-of-
events information exchange.
control blocks for generic substation event (GSE) - supports a fast and reliable system-wide distribution of
input and output data values; peer-to-peer exchange of IED binary status information, for example, a trip
signal.
control blocks for transmission of sampled values - fast and cyclic transfer of samples, for example, of
instrument transformers.
control - describes the services to control, for example, devices.
time and time synchronization - provides the time base for the device and system.
file transfer - defines the exchange of large data blocks such as programs.

An overview of the conceptual service model of the ACSI is shown in Figure 3.

NOTE 1 The numbers in the circles indicate the respective clauses in this part of IEC 61850.

NOTE 2 The class diagrams are conceptual. Details are defined in the respective clauses. Comprehensive
diagrams are contained in IEC 61850-7-1. The DATA class may be defined recursively. The operations for
substitution and control are restricted to the lowest level in the DATA class. The DataAttributes may be defined
recursively as well.

The logical node is one of the major building blocks that has associations to most of the other information
exchange models, for example, report control, log control, and setting control.

Any other information exchange service model, for example, report control, log control, and setting control shall
inherit the ObjectName and ObjectReference as depicted in Figure 2.

NOTE 3 The class models and services are defined using an object-oriented approach allowing for the mapping
of class models and services to different application layer and middle ware solutions.

NOTE 1 IEC 61850-7-4 defines specialized logical node classes - the compatible logical node classes, for
example, XCBR representing circuit-breakers.

The definition of LOGICAL-NODEs for the substation-application domain is refined by the definition of specific
DATAin IEC 61850-7-4. The definitions in IEC 61850-7-4 (and IEC 61850-7-3 for the common DATA classes)
shall be taken into account to get the comprehensive definition of substation-domain-specific LOGICAL-
NODEs.

NOTE 2 IEC 61850-7-4 defines further attributes for LOGICAL-NODEs; for example,, the mode (behaviour:
ON, BLOCKED, TEST, etc.) of the substation-specific LOGICAL-NODE is defined in IEC 61850-7-4. The state
model of a LOGICAL-NODE is modelled as a specific DATA (named Mod).

10 Data

The DATA shall have the structure defined in Table 16.

An instance of a DATA class may contain zero or more instances of a CompositeCDC, SimpleCDC or a
DataAttribute. However, they cannot all be absent, so at least one of these elements shall be present.

NOTE 5 The structure of a DATA class is recursive since a CompositeCDC is also of type DATA class. The
level of recursion may be restricted by a SCSM, so the number of levels of recursion of CompositeCDCs is
normally no greater than 1.

NOTE 6 DATA or part of a DATA may be referenced in a DATA-SET. The persistent existence of DATA is
expected as long as they are referenced as members of a DATA-SET. A system has to take special measures
to ensure their existence.

10 Data Attribute Type

The DAType shall be as defined in Table 17.

NOTE 1 An instance of a DAType may contain 0 or more instances of a CompositeComponent or a


PrimitveDAT. However, they cannot both be absent, so at least one of these elements must be present.

NOTE 2 The structure of a DAType is recursive since a CompositeComponent is also of type DAType. The
level of recursion may be restricted by a SCSM, so the number of levels of recursion of
CompositeComponents is normally no greater than 2.

The ObjectReference syntax shall be:

LDName/LNName[.Name[. ...]]

The "/" shall separate the instance name of a logical device (LDName) from the name of an instance of a
logical node (LNName). The "." shall separate the further names in the hierarchy. The "[ ]" shall indicate an
option. The inner square bracket "[. ...]" shall indicate further names of recursively nested definitions.
NOTE 1 In any case where the context of the text provides sufficient information that an instance of a class is
meant, the term "instance of" is not used.

NOTE 2 Clause 19 specifies constraints on the use of the type ObjectReference.

6 Server

The class SERVER shall represent the externally visible behaviour of a device. The SERVER shall be a
composition as defined in Table 11.

NOTE 1 IEC 61850-7-4 defines specialized logical node classes - the compatible logical node classes, for
example, XCBR representing circuit-breakers.

The definition of LOGICAL-NODEs for the substation-application domain is refined by the definition of specific
DATAin IEC 61850-7-4. The definitions in IEC 61850-7-4 (and IEC 61850-7-3 for the common DATA classes)
shall be taken into account to get the comprehensive definition of substation-domain-specific LOGICAL-
NODEs.

NOTE 2 IEC 61850-7-4 defines further attributes for LOGICAL-NODEs; for example,, the mode (behaviour:
ON, BLOCKED, TEST, etc.) of the substation-specific LOGICAL-NODE is defined in IEC 61850-7-4. The state
model of a LOGICAL-NODE is modelled as a specific DATA (named Mod).

GetDataDirectory
GetDataDefinition

An instance of a DATA class may contain zero or more instances of a CompositeCDC, SimpleCDC or a
DataAttribute. However, they cannot all be absent, so at least one of these elements shall be present.

NOTE 5 The structure of a DATA class is recursive since a CompositeCDC is also of type DATA class. The
level of recursion may be restricted by a SCSM, so the number of levels of recursion of CompositeCDCs is
normally no greater than 1.

NOTE 6 DATA or part of a DATA may be referenced in a DATA-SET. The persistent existence of DATA is
expected as long as they are referenced as members of a DATA-SET. A system has to take special measures
to ensure their existence.

10 Data Attribute Type

The DAType shall be as defined in Table 17.

NOTE 1 An instance of a DAType may contain 0 or more instances of a CompositeComponent or a


PrimitveDAT. However, they cannot both be absent, so at least one of these elements must be present.

NOTE 2 The structure of a DAType is recursive since a CompositeComponent is also of type DAType. The
level of recursion may be restricted by a SCSM, so the number of levels of recursion of
CompositeComponents is normally no greater than 2.

Table - Semantic of a small subset of data attributes from IEC 61850-7-3 (2004-01-03)

DataSemantics
DAName Semantics
actVal Binary counter status represented as an integer value.
Angle reference. Indicates the quantity that is used as reference for the phase angle.
angRef For the indicated quantity, the fundamental frequency (index = 1) is used as
reference by convention.
Name of the common data class. Used together with cdcNs, for details see IEC
cdcName
61850-7-1.
cdcNs Common data class name space. For details see IEC 61850-7-1.
Uniquely identifies the configuration of a logical device instance. ConfigRev in LLN0
(at LD level) has to be changed at least on any semantic change of the data model
configRev
of this LD related to the client functionality. How this is detected and performed is left
to the user. Also the semantics of configRev concerning other LNs is left to the user.
crvPts The array with the points specifying a curve shape
Specifies the control model of IEC 61850-7-2 that corresponds to the behaviour of
the data. NOTE 2 If a data instance of a control class has no status information
associated, then the attribute stVal does not exist. In that case, the value range for
ctlModel is restricted to direct-with-normal-security and sbo-with-normal-security.

ctlModel

If the change of the status was caused by a control, the content shall show the
control sequence number of the control service. All service primitives belonging to
one control sequence shall be identified by the same control sequence number. The
ctlNum
use of ctlNum is an issue of the client. The only thing that the server shall do with
ctlNum is to include it in the responses to the control model and in the reports about
a status change that is caused by a command.
Determines the control activity. For the CDC INC, the integer value 0 shall be
transmitted to reset the value. For the CDC BSC, if the data attribute persistent is
FALSE, higher and lower refer to one step in the data attribute posVal of the data
ctlVal
attribute valWTr. For the CDC ISC, the INTEGER value refers always to a dedicated
position in the data attribute posVal of the data attribute valWTr which has to be
reached directly.
Textual description of the data. In case of the common data class LPL, the
d
description refers to the logical node.
dataNs Data name space. For details see IEC 61850-7-1.
Deadband. Shall represent a configuration parameter used to calculate all
deadbanded attributes (for example mag attribute in the CDC MV). The value shall
db represent the percentage of difference between max and min in units of 0,001 %. If
an integral calculation is used to determine the deadbanded value, the value shall be
represented as 0,001 % s.
General direction of the fault. If the faults of individual phases have different
dirGeneral
directions, this attribute shall be set to both.
dirNeut Direction of the fault for neut.
dirPhsA Direction of the fault for phase A.
dirPhsB Direction of the fault for phase B.
dirPhsC Direction of the fault for phase C.
dU Textual description of the data using unicode characters. For further details, see d.
BOOLEAN value, which controls the freeze, process. If TRUE, freezing shall occur
frEna
as specified in strTm, frPd and frRs. If FALSE, no freezing shall occur.
Time interval in ms between freeze operations. If frPd is 0, only a single freeze is
frPd
performed at the time indicated in strTm.
frRs Indicates that counter is to be automatically reset to zero after each freezing process.
frTm Time of the last counter freeze.
frVal Frozen binary counter status represented as an integer value.
Logical "or" of the phase values, for example trip or start. The attribute shall also be
general
set if not all phases have a fault condition.
hwRev HW-revision.
instMag Magnitude of a the instantaneous value of a measured value.
ldNs Logical device name space. For details see IEC 61850-7-1.
lnNs Logical node name space. For details see IEC 61850-7-1.
location Location, where the equipment is installed.
Deadbanded value. Shall be based on a dead band calculation from instMag as
illustrated below. The value of mag shall be updated to the current value of instMag
when the value has changed according the configuration parameter db. NOTE 7 The
figure above is an example. There may be other algorithms providing a comparable
result; for example as an alternate solution, the dead band calculation may use the
integral of the change of instMag. The algorithm used is a local issue. NOTE 8 This
value mag is typically used to create reports for analogue values. Such a report sent
"by exception" is not comparable to the transfer of sampled measured values as
mag

supported by the CDC SAV.

Maximum process measurement for which values of i or f are considered within


max process limits. If the value is higher, q shall be set accordingly (validity =
questionable, detailQual = outOfRange).
Defines together with minVal the setting range for ctlVal (CDC INC, BSC, ISC),
maxVal
setVal (CDC ING) or setMag (CDC APC, ASG).
Minimum process measurement for which values of i or f are considered within
min process limits. If the value is lower, q shall be set accordingly (validity =
questionable, detailQual = outOfRange).
Defines together with maxVal the setting range for ctlVal (CDC INC, BSC, ISC),
minVal
setVal (CDC ING) or setMag (CDC APC, ASG).
Net current. Net current is the algebraic sum of the instantaneous values of currents
net flowing through all live conductors (sum over phase currents) and neutral of a circuit
at a point of the electrical installation.
neut (WYE) Value of phase neutral. For further details see phsA (WYE).

Contains information related to the originator of the last change of the controllable
origin
value of the data.
Value of phase A. In the WYE class, values for phsA, phsB, phsC neut, net and res
have been simultaneously acquired or determined. It shall be assumed that any jitter
phsA (WYE)
between the acquisition times dedicated for phsA, phsB, phsC neut, net and res is
neglectable. The jitter for simultaneity shall be as indicated in the time quality field.
phsA (ACT, ACD) Trip or start event of phase A.
Value of phase A to phase B measurement. In the DEL class, values for phsAB,
phsBC and phsCA have been simultaneously acquired or determined. It shall be
phsAB assumed that any jitter between the acquisition times dedicated for phsAB, phsBC
and phsCA is neglectable. The jitter for simultaneity shall be as indicated in the time
quality field.
This array shall contain the harmonic and subharmonics or interharmonic values
phsABHar
related to phase A to phase B. For further details see Har.
phsB (WYE) Value of phase B. For further details see phsA (WYE).

phsCA Value of phase C to phase A measurement. For further details see phsAB.
pulseConfig Used to configure the output pulse generated with the command if applicable.
Magnitude of the counted value per count. actVal/frVal and pulsQty are used to
pulsQty
calculate the value: value = actVal pulsQty value = frVal pulsQty
Quality of the attribute(s) representing the value of the data. For the different CDCs q
applies to the following data attributes:

q
Range in which the current value of instMag or instCVal.mag is. It may be used to
issue an event if the current value changes and transitions to another range. Range
shall be used in the context with configuration attributes like hhLim, hLim, lLim, llLim,
min and max as shown below. NOTE 9 The use of algorithms to filter events based
on transition from one range to another is a local issue. NOTE 10 This value with the
trigger option data-change as described in 61850-7-2 may be used to report an
event to the client.

range

rangeC Configuration parameters as used in the context with the range attribute.
Residual current. Residual current is the algebraic sum of the instantaneous values
res of currents flowing through all live conductors (i.e. sum over phase currents) of a
circuit at a point of the electrical installation.
Specifies the SBO-class according to the control model of IEC 61850-7-2 that
corresponds to the behaviour of the data. The following values are defined:

sboClass

Specifies the timeout according to the control model of IEC 61850-7-2 that
sboTimeout
corresponds to the behaviour of the data. The value shall be in ms.
serNum Serial number.
This attribute shall describe the curve characteristic. The values are defined below.
Each curve is of the form x = f(y). There are three options to describe f(y):
characteristic = 1 16: As a formula based on up to 6 parameters A, B, C, D, E and
F. The formula is standardised by ANSI or IEC. ANSI and IEC also specify the
values for A, B, C, D, E and F in that case, the corresponding attributes (setParA, ...,
set ParF) are read-only. characteristic = 17 32: As a definable formula based on
up to 6 parameters A, B, C, D, E and F. In that case it may be possible, that the
parameters may be modified. The specification of the formula is a local issue. The
actual shape of the curve may be read out using a dedicated data of the CDC CSD.
characteristic = 33 48: As a definable curve specified as an array of n (x,y) pairs.
The specification of the array is a local issue. The actual shape of the curve may be
read out using a dedicated data of the CDC CSD.

setCharact
Attribute used to set the parameter A of the setting curve (see detailed description
setParA
under setCharact).
Attribute used to set the parameter B of the setting curve (see detailed description
setParB
under setCharact).
Attribute used to set the parameter C of the setting curve (see detailed description
setParC
under setCharact).
Attribute used to set the parameter D of the setting curve (see detailed description
setParD
under setCharact).
Attribute used to set the parameter E of the setting curve (see detailed description
setParE
under setCharact).
Attribute used to set the parameter F of the setting curve (see detailed description
setParF
under setCharact).
setMag The value of an analogue setting or set point.
setVal The value of a status setting.
Determines according to the sampling theorem the highest possible harmonic or
interharmonic detectable. The minimum is 2 frequency. The value shall represent
smpRate (HMV, HWYE, HDEL)
the number of samples per nominal period. In the case of a d.c. system, the value
shall represent the number of samples per s.
Sampling rate that has been used to determine the analogue values. The value shall
smpRate (MV, CMV, WYE, DEL) represent the number of samples per nominal period. In the case of a d.c. system,
the value shall represent the number of samples per s.
Defines the step between individual values that ctlVal (CDC INC, BSC, ISC), setVal
stepSize
(CDC ING) or setMag (CDC APC, ASG) will accept.
Starting time of the freeze process. If the current time is later than the start time, the
strTm first freeze shall occur at the next freeze interval (frPd) expiration, computed from the
start time setting.
stSeld The controllable data is in the status "selected".
stVal Status value of the data.
Used to enable substitution. If this attribute is set to true, the attribute(s) representing
the value of the data instance shall always be set to the same value as the attribute
(s) used to store the substitution value of the data. If this attribute is set to false, the
attribute(s) representing the value of the data instance shall be based on the process
value. For the different CDCs subEna applies to the following data attributes: It is the
responsibility of the client application, in particular in the case of multiple attributes to
be substituted, to set all relevant substitution values before enabling substitution. To
prevent wrong operation in a specific mapping to one Get-Service request, the
substitution is recommended to be mapped to two setDataValue services: the first
one to set the substitution values and the second to set subEna to true.
subEna

Shows the address of the device that made the substitution. The value of null shall
subID
be used if subEna is false or if the device is not known.
subMag Value used to substitute the data attribute instMag.
subQ Value used to substitute the data attribute q.
Value used to substitute the attribute representing the value of the data instance. For
the different CDCs subVal is used to substitute the following data attributes:

swRev SW-revision.
Timestamp of the last change in one of the attribute(s) representing the value of the
data or in the q attribute. For the different CDCs t applies to the following data
attributes:

t
Units of the attribute(s) representing the value of the data. For the different CDCs
units applies to the following data attributes:

units

vendor Name of the vendor.


xD Description of the value of the x-axis of a curve.
xUnit Unit of the x-axis of a curve.
yD Description of the value of the y-axis of a curve.
yUnit Unit of the y-axis of a curve.
Configuration parameter used to calculate the range around zero, where the
analogue value will be forced to zero. The value shall represent the percentage of
difference between max and min in units of 0,001 %. For the different CDCs zeroDb
zeroDb applies to the following data attributes:
Use of XML for the common data attributes of IEC 61850-7-3

Version 2003-08-26 (has been automatically created from a XML file through a
transformation)

These examples are intended to demonstrate that:

a single XML document (Data_Semantic.xml) contains the complete definition of the data semantics
the transformation (Data_Semantic_VIEW.htm) automatically creates a table from the XML
document
the transformation automatically creates hyper links for easier navigation
the transformation automatically creates anchors for easier navigation by other html pages

Benefit: DEFINE THE DATA SEMANTIC ONCE IN XML -- USE THEM MANY TIMES for different views!!!

Table - Semantic of a small subset of data from IEC 61850-7-4 (2004-01-03)

Data Semantic
DataName Semantics
Amp Current of a non-three-phase circuit.
Phase angle correction of a phasor (used for example for instrument
AngCor
transformers/transducers).
Rated current, intrinsic property of the device, which cannot be set/
ARtg
changed from remote.
Since the logical device controls all logical nodes that are part of the logical
device, the mode of the logical device ('LDMode' = LLN0.Mod) and the
mode of a specific logical node ('LNMode' = XXXX.Mod) are related. The
behaviour of a logical node is therefore a combination of LLN0.Mod and
XXXX.Mod and is described in the 'LNBeh' = XXXX.Beh. This Data is read-
only and has the same possible values as Mod (Mode). The value is
determined according the following table:

Beh
This Data is used to block 'close operation' (for example, for XCBR, XSWI,
YPSH) from another logical node such as a protection node or from a local/
BlkCls remote switch. An example may be the low isolation gas density. Block
closing is not reflected in operating capability. TRUE = block operation
'close circuit breaker .
This Data is used to block 'open operation' (for example to XCBR, XSWI,
YPSH) from another logical node such as a protection node or from a local/
BlkOpn remote switch. An example may be the blocking of the buscoupler also for
trips during busbar transfer. Block opening is not reflected in operating
capability. TRUE = block operation 'open circuit breaker'.
This is an enumeration representing the physical capabilities of the breaker
to operate. It reflects the switching energy as well as additional blocking
due to some local problems. CBOpCap is always less or equal to
MaxOpCap.

CBOpCap

More values (6...n) describe higher Operating Capabilities. A new value, i.


e. a new line in the table must start alternating with 'Close' and 'Open' and
must end always with 'Open'.
This Data is used to enable the charger motor; used to prevent overload of
ChaMotEna the power supply after a busbar trip. TRUE = enable charger motor, FALSE
= disable charger motor.
Magnitude correction of a phasor (used for example for instrument
Cor
transformers/transducers).
Diag TRUE = Diagnostic is running, FALSE = Diagnostic is not running.
This information reflects the state of external equipment, for example circuit
EEHealth breaker controlled by the logical node XCBR. The values are the same as
for the Health.
This information reflects the name plate of external equipment, for example
EEName
the circuit breaker XCBR controlled by the logical node CSWI.
This information reflects the state of the logical node related HW and SW.
More detailed information related to the source of the problem may be
provided by specific Data. For LLN0, this Data reflects the worst value of
'Health' of the logical nodes that are part of the logical device associated
with LLN0.

Health

Health states 1 ('green') and 3 ('red') are unambiguous by definition. The


detailed meaning of Health state 2 ('yellow') is a local issue depending from
the dedicated function/device.
Hz The frequency of a power system in Hz.
Rated frequency, intrinsic property of the device, which cannot be set/
HzRtg
changed from remote.
LEDRs Resets all light emitting diodes, true causes reset to occur.
This changeover is always done locally with a physical key or toggle
switch. The physical key or toggle switch may have a set of contacts from
which the position can be read. This Data indicates the switchover between
local and remote operation; local = TRUE, remote = FALSE. At bay level
Loc 'local' means operation from the bay unit and 'remote' means opereation
from a station unit. At process level, 'local' means operation direct on the
process device, for example on a circuit breaker and 'remote' means
operation from a bay unit. If in a Logical Device the Loc of LLN0 is in
contradiction to the Loc of any contained LN, 'local' is always dominant.
This Data shall provide the information of the operation capability available
MaxOpCap when the switch mechanism is fully charged. The Maximum Operating
Capability gives the information about the maximum of CBOpCap.
Mod

NamPlt This is the name plate of the logical node.


Operate (Common Data Classes ACT) indicates the trip decision of a
Op
protection function (LN). The trip itself is issued by PTRC.
This Data represents a count of operations that is not resetable. In general,
OpCnt this type of counter is included in the following LNs: XCBR, XSWI, and
YLTC. The counter shall not be reset from remote but maybe from local.
This Data indicates the Operation time in h of a physical device since start
OpTmh
of the operation. Details are LN specific.
PF Phase to ground power factor for Phases 1, 2, and 3, including Angle.
PhV Phase to ground voltages for Phases 1, 2, and 3, including Angle.
This Data is accessed when performing a switch command or to verify the
Pos switch status or position. When this Data is also used for a hand-operated
switch, the (optional) CtlVal attribute in IEC 61850-7-3 does not exist.
Point On Wave switching capability.

POWCap

PPV Phase to phase voltages.


Rat Winding ratio of an instrument transformer/transducer
RsDlTmms Time delay in ms before reset once reset conditions have been met.
Start (Common Data Classes ACD) indicates the detection of a fault or an
Str
unacceptable condition. Str may contain phase and directional information.
Sum of switched amperes, resetable. This Data indicates the sum or
integration of all switched currents since the last reset of the counter for
SumSwARs
example after maintenance of the contacts, the nozzle and other aging
parts.
TotPF Average power factor for a three-phase circuit.
TotVA Total apparent power in a three-phase circuit.
TotVAr Total reactive power in a three-phase circuit.
TotW Total real power in a three phase circuit.
