Upgrade Guideline for 2015-12-07

DIGSI 5 V6.xx or higher

Guideline for Upgrading Projects incl. IEC 61850 to DIGSI 5 V6.xx or


higher
From DIGSI 5 V6.00 onwards, the complete IEC 61850 engineering is done with the Siemens IEC 61850
System Configurator (similar to recent DIGSI 4 versions). Due to the separation of the IEC 61850 engineer-
ing, additional steps must be executed with the previous DIGSI 5 installation before starting with V6.xx or
higher.

So if you want to upgrade existing projects including IEC 61850 (created with V5.00 or previous) to DIGSI 5
V06.xx or higher, read the guideline carefully and follow the steps described in the following sections.

Note: You have to follow the described steps for each of your projects! This guideline applies only if you are
using IEC 61850 in your project. If not, the upgrade workflow has not changed and you only have to perform
step 2 as usual.

Short summary:
1. Open the previous DIGSI 5 version, for example V5.00, open the project you want to upgrade to
V6.xx or higher, and export it in SCD format. Close DIGSI 5.
2. Install DIGSI 5 V6.xx or higher and import all required DDDs (used in the old DIGSI 5 project plus
new V6.xx or higher DDDs).
3. Open the IEC 61850 System Configurator (automatically installed with DIGSI 5 V6.xx or higher) and
select to open a project.
4. Select the SCD file from step 1 and confirm the dialog with Open. In order to create a new IEC pro-
ject, you now have to select a target path. Close the IEC 61850 System Configurator.
5. Start DIGSI 5 V6.xx or higher, open the old DIGSI project, and confirm to upgrade it.
6. When asked for a related IEC project, browse to the IEC project created in step 3 and select the
project SCD file.

DIGSI 5 V6.xx or higher

Detailed guideline:

Step 1:

Open your previous DIGSI 5 version, for example V5.00, and open the project you want to upgrade to V6.xx
or higher. In this example, the project is called 110kVBerlin.

In the Project tree, right-click the Project name and select Export….

DIGSI 5 V6.xx or higher

As data format, select SCD – Substation Configuration Description and enter a file name. In the example,
the file is called 110kVBerlin_V500.scd.

Confirm the dialog by clicking Export and close DIGSI 5 afterwards.

Step 2:

Install DIGSI 5 V6.xx or higher and import all required DDDs (used in the old DIGSI 5 project plus new V6.xx
or higher DDDs).

Step 3:

Open the IEC 61850 System Configurator V5.01. It was automatically installed together with DIGSI 5.
Now, select to open a project.

Step 4:

Navigate to the SCD file exported in Step 1, select it, and confirm the dialog with Open.

When you are asked if you want to create a new IEC 61850 System Configurator project, confirm with Yes.

In the upcoming dialog, select a path and project name for your new IEC 61850 System Configurator project.

Note: Siemens recommends saving everything (IEC project, DIGSI project, 3 Party project) under one par-
ent folder.

In the example, the project was called 110kVBerlinIECEngineering, and located under the common folder
110kVBerlin.

After the successful creation of the project and import of the old SCD file, you find your IEC 61850 devices
under IEDs. Close the IEC 61850 System Configurator now.

Step 5:

Start DIGSI 5 V6.xx or higher and open the old DIGSI project you want to upgrade.

DIGSI 5 recognizes that the project was created with a previous DIGSI 5 version and asks if you want to
upgrade now. Click OK.

Note: DIGSI 5 will not overwrite your old project but rename the new project automatically to e.g.
<OldProject>_V06.xx.

Step 6:

Now, you have to establish an assignment between the new DIGSI 5 and IEC 61850 System Configurator
projects. Click OK.

Navigate to the IEC 61850 System Configurator project created in Step 3.


In the example, it was 110kVBerlinIECEngineering.
Confirm the assignment by clicking Save.

The data of the IEC 61850 System Configurator project is imported.

Now, you can see the IEC 61850 station in the project tree. To check the assignment to the IEC 61850 Sys-
tem Configurator project, right-click the station and select Properties from the context menu.

Your DIGSI 5 project has been successfully upgraded to V6.xx or higher and is now ready to use.
