128   Add DstAddr to GsCB, SV

This tissue has following status: green

Created: 16 Mar 2005



Clause: 18, 19


Category: No impact on this part

Issue: See also: #53 (IEC 61850-7-2)
Within the current scheme of 61850, the GSE and SMV control blocks do not contain the destination (multicast) MAC address, while the Goose control blocks do. This means that the only way of finding out the group addresses for GSE and SMV are through SCL. This is fine if everything is configured correctly, but does not allow for the validation of the configuration, and will make diagnostics needlessly difficult. If we made the addresses visible in MMS, life will be much simpler for utilities.

Proposal: Add the group addresses for GSE and SMV.

8-1 will add a DstAddress element to the GSCB per Table 51 of IEC 61850-8-1. The element will be mandatory "r". The VLAN information in the 8-1 datatype shall be ignored for the case of GSCB.

The SVCB is not an 8-1 issue. However, the DstAddress type will be added to 9-2 and this will be reflected into 9-2.
31 Mar 05 final proposal
