Enabling utility personal to define data communications requirements
How should I introduce a new communication protocol to my network? How should I migrate to a new situation based on standards? How does it work in practice?
DNV GL offers open or in-house communication protocol training courses to answer these and other questions.
Utility personnel and IT suppliers can participate in a protocol training course to learn more about the functionality and practical use of IEC protocols.
Our training enables utility personnel to participate in technical discussions and to define communication requirements, especially performance and redundancy requirements, which are not defined in the standard. This knowledge helps utilities draw up a call for tender. And both developers and users will learn how to trace and fix communication failures. The agenda of in-house training sessions can be customized to the requirements of participants.
Theory and practice of data communications protocols
Our two and three-day courses include both theoretical and practical training. The theoretical training covers the protocol from the general level, right down to details such as how to translate the data objects into frames and bytes.
The practical training goes into the practicalities of encoding messages and provides hands-on experience, working with DNV GL’s test tools for the protocol in question.
The program also covers an explanation of the IEC and users organizations and working groups.
A typical training course will cover:
- protocol introduction
- protocol documentation
- data formats or object definitions
- communication functions
- exercises with DNV GL’s test tools
- problem solving
- testing approach.
