Proposed transmission smart grids will use a digital platform for the automation of substations operating at voltage levels of 110 kV and above. The IEC 61850 series of standards, released in parts over the last ten years, provide a specification for substation communications networks and systems. These standards, along with IEEE Std 1588-2008 Precision Time Protocol version 2 (PTPv2) for precision timing, are recommended by the both IEC Smart Grid Strategy Group and the NIST Framework and…

Network Interactions and Performance of a Multifunction IEC 61850 Process Bus
A method, based on the Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) and virtual local area networks, is presented that separates management and monitoring traffic from the rest of the process bus, and a quantitative investigation of the interaction between various protocols used in a process bus is described.
Advanced networks for distributed measurement in substation automation systems
The results demonstrate that the commonly adopted Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) is not suitable for the most demanding measurement applications due to the loss of measurement samples during the network reconfiguration time (up to 200 ms), and more advanced redundancy protocols are able to satisfy also the most strict availability requirements, as suggested by the simulation results.

An IEC 61850-Compliant distributed PMU for electrical substations
A measurement architecture based on process bus and sampled values synchronized with IEEE 1588-2008 is proposed, so that voltage and current signals are acquired by a Merging Unit, while the signal processing is performed on a IED (Intelligent Electronic Device) that uses a new algorithm for synchrophasor measurement.
