IEEE Standard for Electric Power Systems Communications-Distributed Network Protocol (DNP3)

The DNP3 protocol structure, functions, and interoperable application options (subset levels) are specified. The simplest application level is intended for low-cost distribution feeder devices, and the most complex for full-featured systems. The appropriate level is selected to suit the functionality required in each device. The protocol is suitable for operation on a variety of communication media consistent with the makeup of most electric power communication systems.

P1815

Standard for Electric Power Systems Communications-Distributed Network Protocol (DNP3)

This document specifies the DNP3 protocol structure, functions, cyber security features and interoperable application options (subset levels). The specified subset level defines the functionality implemented in each device. The simplest level is intended for basic devices. More advanced levels support increasing functionality. The protocol is suitable for operation on a variety of communication media consistent with the makeup of most electric power communication systems.

1815-2010

IEEE Standard for Electric Power Systems Communications -- Distributed Network Protocol (DNP3)

The DNP3 protocol structure, functions, and application alternatives and the corresponding conformance test procedures are specified. In addition to defining the structure and operation of DNP3, three application levels that are interoperable are defined. The simplest application is for low-cost distribution feeder devices, and the most complex is for full-featured master stations. The intermediate application level is for substation and other intermediate devices. The protocol is suitable for operation on a variety of communication media consistent with the makeup of most electric power communication systems.
