BS EN 61400-25-1 is part of the BS EN 61400-25 series of standards series for vendors (manufacturers, suppliers), operators, owners, planners, and designers of wind power plants as well as system integrators and utility companies operating in the wind energy market. BS EN 61400-25 is intended to be accepted and used world-wide as the international standard for communications in the domain of wind power plants.
BS EN 61400-25-1 gives an overall description of the principles and models used in the BS EN 61400-25 series of standards.
The BS EN 61400-25 series focuses on the communications between wind power plant components such as wind turbines and actors such as SCADA Systems. Internal communication within wind power plant components is beyond the scope of the BS EN 61400-25 series.
The BS EN 61400-25 series is designed for a communication environment supported by a clientserver model. Three areas are defined, that are modelled separately to ensure the scalability of implementations:
• Wind power plant information models
• Information exchange model
• Mapping of these two models to a standard communication profile.
