Modelling the IEC 61850-6 Substation Configuration Language SCL with UML and Enterprise Architect Training Course - 2 Days

The content of the course is currently under development. It is envisaged that it will be split roughly between a day introducing the basic concepts of object orientation and the IEC 61850-5 specification and a second day spent teaching how to model them in UML using Enterprise Architect. The hands-on aspect of the course will include getting the structure of the Substation Configuration Language (SCL) into Enterprise Architect in UML form and modelling examples of Substation Automation System (SAS) requirements and solutions in UML based upon the SCL model structure. The modelling should be sufficient to get students to the point where they can produce models up to and including those specified in part e) of Section 5 'Intended Engineering Process with SCL' of the specification. Please let us know if you would like to see any variation of this proposed content.

Delegates will learn:
  • The basics and the necessary detail of the Unified Modelling Language
  • The basics and the necessary detail of Object Orientation
  • The basics and the necessary detail of the use of Enterprise Architect
  • The basics and the necessary detail of the IEC 61850-6 Substation Configuration Language SCL
  • How to import the Substation Configuration Language (SCL) schema into Enterprise Architect using the xml definition in the specification
  • How to describe a system specification in terms of the single line diagram, and allocation of logical nodes (LN) to parts and equipment of the single line to indicate the needed functionality
  • How to describe pre-configured IEDs with a fixed number of logical nodes (LNs), but with no binding to a specific process
  • How to describe pre-configured IEDs with a pre-configured semantic for a process part of a certain structure, for example a double busbar GIS line feeder
  • How to describe complete process configuration with all IEDs bound to individual process functions and primary equipment
  • How to add all predefined associations and client server connections between logical nodes at a data level
  • How to interpret a specification in UML that describes the above system attributes
Suitable for:
Suitable for

Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Electrical Equipment Specifiers, Real-time Systems Developers and Analyst/Programmers with at least 2 years experience. No prior understanding of either object orientation or UML is required.

The client is expected to provide an appropriate conferencing service that allows the instructor to join the online meeting, share their screen, talk to each and every student on the course and view their screen if necessary to support their individual modelling work. They should also provide a computer for each student loaded with at least the evaluation version of Enterprise Architect or another suitable modelling tool. For a discussion of the use of modelling tools, please see Modelling Tool Use on Courses. Copies of all presentations, exercises and solutions will be provided electronically.
