The IEC 61850 2019 Conference in London has comprehensively covered many important aspects of digital transformation that can create significant values and unlock many potential benefits for the electricity industry. Reflection of my learning from this conference is that IEC 61850 Interoperability of equipment and Systems and standardised information model will be the key catalysts that help utilities to streamline processes, improve efficiencies and more importantly create new values (network information). Utilities can create new values, i.e. Network Information by taking advantages of software tools and automated processes. Most electrical utilities collect massive amount of valuable data that need to be turned into standard information models to create significant values that has not been discovered. The values of network and systems information (soft assets) can be much more than the physical assets.
