IEC61850 Based Open Platform for Smart Grid Application Development

Abstract: This research proposes an IEC61850 based open platform, which allows modular, standard based and efficient application development for smart grid applications, such as smart grid control, protection and monitoring. The research provides a hardware platform and application interface (API) with IEC61850 modelling for logical nodes common for application development. In addition, it describes the engineering tools and processes necessary to successfully design, implement and operate the smart grid system built upon the open platform.

Bio: Professor Huimin Li received the BSc and MSc degrees in Electrical Power Engineering from Xian Jiaotong University, Xian, China in 1984 and 1987 respectively, and the PhD in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from Strathclyde University, Glasgow, UK.

Currently, he is distinguished professor at the Shandong University of Technology (SDUT), Zibo, China, distinguished visiting professor at the Shandong University, Jinan, China and Chairman of board of GridNT Inc, Jinan, China. Dr Li worked as Member of Technical Staff for Nortel Networks in 1995-1998, Member of Scientific Staff in Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies in 1998-2000. Dr Li served as general managers for China subsidiaries of USA companies of BigBand Networks and Camiant Inc. in 2005-2008.

Dr Li‘s research interests are in smart grid, especially in smart grid protocols and communications. Dr Li applies state of art information and communication technologies in smart substation, metropolitan railway electrical automation and smart energy grid. Dr Li’s main contribution in smart grid includes real-time big data processing, visualization of electrical power automation configuration, standard based modeling of electrical power systems and power system analysis using artificial intelligence. Dr Li is Distinguished Overseas Returnees Expert of Jinan City, Taishan Scholars of Shandong Province, and selected as an expert in the national Thousand Talents plan in 2016.
