What are Reports?
Information reports in IEC 61850 allow a server to provide information to a client based on configured conditions. The information sent in a particular report is based on a dataset. The conditions upon which the data is set are configured in a report control block. The General Integrity trigger allows a client to request a complete snapshot of the dataset, but otherwise the server sends reports per configuration, either on a periodic timer (Integrity report) or based on a change in the value or quality of the dataset members.
