MiCOM Configuration Language (MCL) This is a proprietary language file which contains a MiCOM device's IEC 61850 configuration information. This makes it easier to connect different manufacturers’ products together and simplifies wiring and network changes. It allows common substation files to be exchanged between all devices and between different manufacturers' toolsets. ● Edit Logical Devices and Logical Nodes. Users can specify and provide their own SCL files to ensure that IEDs are configured according to their requirements.1 IEC 61850 CONFIGURATOR TOOL FEATURES The IEC 61850 configurator allows you to: ● Select and check IEC 61850 Edition 1 or Edition 2.2 IEC 61850 SUBSTATION CONFIGURATION LANGUAGES The following languages are used. ○ Range (minimum and maximum measurement values). ● Configure the operation of control objects (circuit breaker trip and close): ○ The control mode (such as Direct. ● Define datasets for inclusion in report and GOOSE control blocks. ● Configure GOOSE control blocks for publishing (outgoing) messages.

It also allows you to extract a configuration file so you can view. ● Configure IED time synchronisation using SNTP. The IEC 61850 Configurator tool is used to configure the IEC 61850 settings of MiCOM IEDs. It standardizes the way data is transferred to and from IEC 61850 compliant IEDs. ● Transfer IEC 61850 configuration information to and from an IED. ● Configure virtual inputs. Substation Configuration Language (SCL) This is an XML-based standard language used to configure IEC 61850 IEDs in substations. ○ Deadband (percentage change of measurement range for reporting).

To ensure consistency with the configuration of other IEDs in the system. The IEC 61850 Configurator can be used before commissioning an IED to create a blank configuration ICD file. The ICD file can be preinstalled as a template in the IEC 61850 Configurator and opened directly.

5.14 EXPORTING CONFIGURED SCL FILES
Any IED configuration in an Editor window can be exported to a configured SCL file, if it has not been
opened for restricted editing. To export a configured SCL file, the IEC 61850 Configurator tool needs the
IED's ICD template file.
1. In an Editor window, select Tools then Export Configuration to SCL.
2. Select the MCL configuration file which is to be exported.
3. Specify the destination file name for the configured SCL file.
Configuration items that are specific to MCL are not exported. This is because the information is not
supported by the SCL schema. It is therefore important to save the configuration in an MCL file.
The main reason for exporting configured SCL files is to allow configuration information to be shared
between multiple tools. This is for the configuration of, for example, GOOSE message exchange.

Note:
For IEC 61850 Edition 2 products, two different types of SCL schema can be exported:
Schema v3.1 for complete Edition 2 systems.
Schema v2.1 for mixed Edition 1 and Edition 2 systems. This is the backwards compatible version.

5.15 EXPORTING LOGICAL DEVICE AND NODE MODELS TO A DOCUMENT
A document containing logical node and device model lists may be exported as a Microsoft Word file (*.doc
or *.docx), or an Adobe Reader Portable Document Format (PDF) file to a user defined location.
1. Select Tools then Export Logical Devices to Doc. The Save As dialog appears.
2. Choose a suitable location and file name.
3. Select the Save as type: Word Document (*.docx), Word 97-2003 (*doc) or PDF Document (*.pdf)
4. Select Save.
A document will be created that identifies the modified logical nodes and devices. Use this in combination
with the device PIXIT for the complete IEC 61850 modelling documentation.

5.16 MANAGING LOGICAL DEVICES AND NODES
The Manage Logical Devices option allows users to customise the IEC 61850 modelling structure.
Information can be presented in a standardised manner between different IEDs.
This option is currently only available for devices that support IEC 61850 Edition 2
The following restrictions apply when editing logical devices and nodes:
● Logical Devices can be freely renamed or and all can be deleted except for SYSTEM
● Logical Nodes can be both freely renamed or deleted, except for LLN0 and LPHD.
● Only Logical Nodes can be moved between different Logical Devices
● Only new Logical Devices can be created

Note:
If using test mode features, logical nodes should not be moved from their default locations. This is because if a
logical node is moved, its test mode behaviour will no longer be consistent between parent and child.

5.16.1 EDITING LOGICAL DEVICES AND NODES
To edit logical devices and nodes, select Tools then Manage Logical Devices. The configuration view is
selected by the Hierarchy view and Flat view radio buttons.

Configuration Views
● Flat view, is the standard view for devices with IEC 61850 Edition 1. All logical devices are at the same
level, and there is no hierarchy shown between the logical devices.
● Hierarchy, presents logical devices grouped as parents and children. This is used to model nested
functions and sub-functions, for example CB Control contains the sub-function CB Fail in the
hierarchy view, whereas in the flat view both of these logical devices are presented at the same level.

5.16.2 CONFIGURING LOGICAL DEVICES
To create a logical device:
1. In the Manage Logical Devices window, select Add LD, and assign a name using the Inst field.
2. Select Save.

Note:
A new logical device is indicated with a green icon.

To delete a logical device:
1. Select the tick box next to the logical device.
2. Select Remove.

Note:
Multiple selections can be made when deleting.

To rename a logical device:
1. In the Manage Logical Devices window, select the required logical device then Edit and modify the
Inst (instance) field as necessary.
2. Select Save.

To restore a logical device to its default setting:
1. Select Compare with default.
2. In the Default Configuration window, select the tick box next to the logical device.
3. Select Restore

Note:
Multiple selections can be made when restoring.

To finalise configuration changes:
1. Select Apply Configuration.The new logical device structure will then be in effect.

5.16.3 CONFIGURING LOGICAL NODES
To move a logical node:
1. Click on the logical node then drag and drop it onto the newly created logical device.

Note:
Logical nodes cannot be moved to a default logical device, they can only be moved to user created logical devices.

This document assumes the PMU devices to which you want to connect have already been configured and are available for connection. These measurements are then communicated back to a central Phasor Data Concentrator (PDC). Measurements are timed to a common GPS clock generating 1 pulse per second. These instabilities can lead to underfrequency or overfrequency or out-of-step conditions.118 standard defines synchronized phasor measurements used in power system applications.

22 MU AGILE CONFIGURATOR
The MU Agile Configurator is a software tool used to configure MU Agile AMU IEDs. It allows you to create
IED configurations or open previously stored IED configurations, which can then be sent to selected IEDs.
Alternatively you can edit an IED's configuration directly.

22.1 IEC 61850 SUBSTATION CONFIGURATION LANGUAGES
The following languages are used.

AMU Configuration Language (AMU)
This is a proprietary language file which contains an AMU's IEC 61850 configuration information. This file is
used for transferring data to or from an MU Agile AMU.

Substation Configuration Language (SCL)
This is an XML-based standard language used to configure IEC 61850 IEDs in substations. It allows
common substation files to be exchanged between all devices and between different manufacturers' toolsets.
This helps to reduce inconsistencies in system configurations. Users can specify and provide their own SCL
files to ensure that IEDs are configured according to their requirements.
SCL also allows IEC 61850 applications to be configured off-line without needing a network connection to the
IED. Off-line system development tools can be used to generate the files needed for IED configuration
automatically from the power system design. This significantly reduces the cost of IED configuration by
eliminating most of the manual configuration tasks.
SCL specifies a hierarchy of configuration files, which enable the various levels of the system to be
described: SSD, SCD, ICD, CID and IID files.

22.2 IEC 61850 SUBSTATION CONFIGURATION FILES
These files all use the standard Substation Configuration Language (SCL). They have the same construction
but differ depending on the application.

System Specification Description (SSD)
This contains the complete specification of a substation automation system including a single line diagram
for the substation and its functionalities, or logical nodes. The SSD contains SCD and ICD files.

Substation Configuration Description (SCD)
This contains information about the substation, all IEDs, data types and communications configuration. An
SCD file is produced when engineering a system from the top down. To ensure consistency with the
configuration of other IEDs in the system, this SCD file normally should not be edited. If there is no SCD file
available, you can open an ICD file and edit this to suit the IED application. The ICD file can be preinstalled
as a template and opened directly, or it can be provided separately.

IED Capability Description file (ICD)
This describes the IED's capabilities, including information on its data model (Logical Devices or Logical
Node instances).

Settings Application Software S1 Agile

22.3 OPENING AN ICD TEMPLATE FILE
If there is no SCD configuration file available, open an ICD template file for the MiCOM IED type that is to be
configured. Once the ICD template is successfully loaded you can then look for all the IEDs that are
connected.
1. Select File then New. The Select Template window appears.
2. To select the template, enter the IED model number or select the product group. The lower pane
shows information about the IED's associated ICD template file, the SCL header details and the IEC
61850 features supported by the IED.

22.3.1 TEMPLATE INSTALLED FOR REQUIRED IED TYPE
If you can find the IED type or ICD template, highlight it and click the Select button. The configuration opens
in manual editing mode so it can be customised for the application.

22.3.2 TEMPLATE NOT INSTALLED FOR REQUIRED IED TYPE
1. If there is no installed ICD file for the IED type that is to be configured, but there is one available from
your supplier, click Browse for External.
2. A search dialog box appears. When you have found the required ICD file, click Open.
3. If the selected ICD Template file is already available as an installed template, a message appears and
a new IED Configuration is created from the installed file.
4. If the selected ICD Template file has additional supported model numbers, a message appears asking
if the additional model numbers should be merged into the installed template.
5. Select Yes to merge the new model numbers into the installed ICD Template file. This makes it
available the next time the Template window appears.
6. If the selected ICD Template file is not installed, a message asks if it should be added to the
application template library.
7. Select Yes to copy the selected ICD template file into the application library. This makes it available
the next time the Template window appears.

22.4 OPENING AN EXISTING AMU CONFIGURATION FILE
1. Select File then Open. A search dialog box appears.
2. Select the required AMU file and click Open.
3. The tool tries to automatically match the AMU data to an installed ICD Template file and then display
the configuration data in a read-only mode.
4. If it cannot automatically match the AMU data to an ICD Template file, the Template window appears.
This allows you to manually assign the AMU data to an ICD Template file. If there is no suitable
template available, click Cancel.
5. A message asks if the configuration is to be opened with Restricted Editing. Select Yes to display the
configuration data in a read-only mode.
