Helinks STS: IEC 61850 System Configuration Tool


Helinks STS is a System Configuration tool for IEC 61850.

HELINKS STS is a tool set for IEC61850-based Substation Automation System Engineering (SAS Engineering). It supports a device-independent top down engineering process according to part 4 and part 6 of the IEC 61850 Standard.

The Helinks STS tool set includes:

  • System Specification Tool
  • System Configuration Tool
  • Various utilities for SCL Handling.

Helinks STS:

  • Supports top down and bottom up engineering processes
  • Focuses on multi-vendor, IED independent engineering
  • Allows you to perform complex engineering tasks with a single click
  • Solve detailed SCL problems with the embedded native SCL Editor
  • Standardized solutions based on libraries give a boost to engineering efficiency and harmonization
  • Implements IEC 61850 Edition 1 and Edition 2

Signal Engineering

The signals tab for a logical node contains the IEC 61850 address of each signal and their status. You can check out the signals for the bay by clicking on the screen or you can see the signals for the whole substation by moving back to the single line diagram and clicking on the substation name.

Communication Specification

Communication exchange between IEDs can be specified within HELINKS STS. After implementation, the signals used in the exchange are updated to the ones for the IED's data models. The “Applications” option from the dashboard is used for creating the application section.

In the Applications section, users have the ability to specify peer to peer applications such as GOOSE and SV or client server applications such as MMS reports. After implementating the IEDs in the system, the communication can be configured, and control blocks are created by Helinks STS.
