Communication for battery energy storage systems compliant with IEC 61850
This paper examines the development and implementation of a communication structure for battery energy storage systems based on the standard IEC 61850 to ensure efficient and reliable operation. It explores this standard's capability to define suitable data exchange with battery energy storage systems and the feasibility of implementation in the field. It also analyzes the extent to which standard IEC 61850's information model and defined interfaces suffice to ensure communication that enables full integration of a battery energy storage system in an electrical (smart) grid. A data model compliant with the standard is developed and subsequently tested in prototype implementation among a control center, photovoltaic system and battery energy storage system.
