Welcome to the Fundamentals of IEC 61850 Online Training Programme

This 12-week community-based learning event has been developed in collaboration with 20+ IEC 61850 specialists from across the European smart grid sector, to ensure that your engineers have all the theoretical and practical knowledge they need to embark on their IEC 61850 journey.
IEC 61850 is far more than a communication protocol. It is an engineering philosophy and a common language for all those working with digital substation technology. As the use of IEC 61850 becomes business-as-usual for substation automation, it is essential for the technicians, design specialists and specification engineers involved to have a solid grounding in the standard.
