The substation automation system Sicam PAS by Siemens is world's first system of its kind to be certified to IEC 61850 Edition 2.
This enables network operators and energy suppliers to integrate not only protection devices of various manufacturers in Sicam PAS, but also devices from other areas of application like Power Quality that comply with IEC 61850 Edition 2 requirements.
In addition, energy suppliers using the certified Siemens system can expand their Edition 1 substation with Edition 2 systems and future-proof them. Just under two years ago, the Siprotec 5 protection devices from Siemens were world's first to receive the certification according to IEC 61850 Edition 2.
With the certification of the client implementation of the Sicam PAS substation automation system, Siemens closes this gap in Edition 2.
IEC 61850 has become a constant for substation automation now and is more than only an Ethernet-based protocol.
With Edition 2, it advances into further power supply areas, because it defines engineering processes, data and service models, the conformity test and the entire substation communication. This expands the application spectrum of the certified devices and systems.
The Sicam PAS substation automation system from Siemens was tested in the laboratories of DNV-GL (Det Norske Veritas – Germanischer Lloyd) in Arnhem in the Netherlands and is certified according to the regulations of the UCA (International Users Group), a nonprofit organization of network operators and manufacturers based in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA.
Siemens is not only supporting its users by providing state-of-the art products and systems, but also driving standards such as IEC 61850 with its expertise.
A very early and long term leading engagement is provided to introduce and continuously improve and extend activities on IEC 61850, to define and support testing procedures resulting in UCA certificates and also to define and support international interoperability tests.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
