One of the functions required by utilities is the testing of protection schemes. Some schemes are quite simple and self-contained whereas other schemes involve many parts of this utility. This use case follows from the scheme design concepts through the analysis of the finished scheme. The objective is to stress the 61850/CIM interface to discover aspects of the “seams” which exist between these two standards. The CIM and 61850 must both be used at least at both ends of the process for this use case to be of practical use.
