    TIMEOUT: 120 s The C30 supports the Distributed Network Protocol (DNP) version 3.0. The C30 can be used as a DNP slave device con- nected to multiple DNP masters (usually an RTU or a SCADA master station). Since the C30 maintains two sets of DNP data change buffers and connection information, two DNP masters can actively communicate with the C30 at one time.

  • Page 143

    DNP analog input points that are voltages will be returned with values 1000 times smaller (for example, a value of 72000 V on the C30 will be returned as 72). These settings are useful when analog input values must be adjusted to fit within cer- tain ranges in DNP masters.

    The C30 supports the Manufacturing Message Specification (MMS) protocol as specified by IEC 61850. MMS is supported over two protocol stacks: TCP/IP over ethernet and TP4/CLNP (OSI) over ethernet. The C30 operates as an IEC 61850 server. The Remote inputs and outputs section in this chapter describe the peer-to-peer GSSE/GOOSE message scheme.

    The C30 supports the IEC 60870-5-104 protocol. The C30 can be used as an IEC 60870-5-104 slave device connected to a maximum of two masters (usually either an RTU or a SCADA master station). Since the C30 maintains two sets of IEC 60870-5-104 data change buffers, no more than two masters should actively communicate with the C30 at one time.

    The C30 relay supports IEC 61850 server services over both TCP/IP and TP4/CLNP (OSI) communication protocol stacks. The TP4/CLNP profile requires the C30 to have a network address or Network Service Access Point (NSAP) to establish a communication link. The TCP/IP profile requires the C30 to have an IP address to establish communications. These addresses are located in the ...

The data content must be configured before the data can be used. GGIO1 provides digital status points for access by clients.

    The protection elements listed above contain start (pickup) and operate flags. For example, the start flag for PIOC1 is PIOC1.ST.Str.general. The operate flag for PIOC1 is PIOC1.ST.Op.general. For the C30 protection elements, these flags take their values from the pickup and operate FlexLogic™ operands for the corresponding element.

    C.3.4 LOGICAL DEVICE NAME The logical device name is used to identify the IEC 61850 logical device that exists within the C30. This name is composed of two parts: the IED name setting and the logical device instance. The complete logical device name is the combination of the two character strings programmed in the settings.

  • Page 380: C.3.6 Logical Node Name Prefixes

    A built-in TCP/IP connection timeout of two minutes is employed by the C30 to detect ‘dead’ connections. If there is no data traffic on a TCP connection for greater than two minutes, the connection will be aborted by the C30. This frees up the con- nection to be used by other clients.

    MAC address for GSSE messages. If GSSE DESTINATION MAC ADDRESS a valid multicast Ethernet MAC address is not entered (for example, 00 00 00 00 00 00), the C30 will use the source Ether- net MAC address as the destination, with the multicast bit set.

  • Page 382

    The C30 has the ability of detecting if a data item in one of the GOOSE datasets is erroneously oscillating. This can be caused by events such as errors in logic programming, inputs improperly being asserted and de-asserted, or failed station components.

    REMOTE IN 1 ITEM item to remote input 1. Remote input 1 can now be used in FlexLogic™ equations or other settings. The C30 must be rebooted (control power removed and re-applied) before these settings take effect. The value of remote input 1 (Boolean on or off) in the receiving device will be determined by the GGIO1.ST.Ind1.stVal value in the sending device.

  • Page 384: C.4.6 Gsse Id And Goose Id Settings

    GSSE and GOOSE messages must have multicast destination MAC addresses. By default, the C30 is configured to use an automated multicast MAC scheme. If the C30 destination MAC address setting is not a valid multicast address (that is, the least significant bit of the first byte is not set), the address used as the destina- tion MAC will be the same as the local MAC address, but with the multicast bit set.

  • Page 385: C.5.1 Overview

    An ICD file is generated for the C30 by the EnerVista UR Setup software that describe the capabilities of the IED. The ICD file is then imported into a system configurator along with other ICD files for other IEDs (from GE or other ven- dors) for system configuration.

    Transmission GOOSE dataset may be added or deleted, or prefixes of some logical nodes may be changed. While all new configurations will be mapped to the C30 settings file when importing an SCD file, all unchanged settings will preserve the same values in the new settings file.

  • Page 387: C.5.3 About Icd Files

    Although configurable transmission GOOSE can also be created and altered by some third-party system con- figurators, we recommend configuring transmission GOOSE for GE Multilin IEDs before creating the ICD, and strictly within EnerVista UR Setup software or the front panel display (access through the Settings > Product Setup > Com- munications >...
