1441 Optonal fields in buffered reports
Created: 24 Sep 2015
Status: In Force (green)
Category: Issue may impact interoperability of implementations of Edition 2
This chapter specifies that changing optional fields does not purge the reports stored already in the buffer. The clause is not clear if the reports/events already stored in the buffer before the optional field change may/should/shall be transmitted on the Ethernet with the original optional fields or with the new optional fields.
Considering this is a very rare case in operational substations we propose to make this a "local issue". The old reports may be transmitted with the original optional fields at the creation time or the new optional fields at the time of transmitting over the Ethernet
