How to convert DNP3 to IEC61850
Introduction DNP3 and IEC61850 are two competing standards which allow to communicate intelligent electronic devices within substations. At least that was the idea when they started to be specified more than 20 years ago. IEC61850 is more complicated both in terms of functionality it covers as well as for implementation. This...
